Former Zags, others open play in NBA Summer League
Some former area college basketball stars are hard at work trying to impress their current/prospective teams as NBA Summer League action has tipped off.
Former Gonzaga great Adam Morrison is playing for the Brooklyn Nets summer league squad. The Mead high grad had 10 points and 10 rebounds in the Nets nine point loss to Boston. It’s the second straight game Morrison has scored 10 points. He did struggle with his shot a bit, going just 3-9 from the field, and 0-3 from three point land.
Fellow former Zag Austin Daye had quite a day on Tuesday for the Detroit Pistons. Daye scored 24 points on 8-10 shooting and was 3-3 from beyond the arch. He also grabbed six rebounds. This performance, after a 12 point, eight rebound effort in the Pistons opening game on Monday.
Also in Orlando is a Stockton playing for the Utah Jazz. John Stockton’s son, Michael, scored four points and had five assists in Utah’s 84-80 win over Philadelphia. The Westminster College and Gonzaga Prep grad scored five points and had two assists in Utah’s opener on Monday. Former Cougar Kyle Weaver is also a member of Utah’s summer league squad. Weaver scored one point on Tuesday after not playing on Monday.
