Hart was the incumbent backup point guard before Rajon Rondo was signed, but he still looks likely to get minutes as the backup shooting guard.

The Trail Blazers held a double-digit lead for the final three quarters while leading by at least 15 points for the entirety of the fourth quarter.

The top-seeded Lakers are looking to take home back-to-back titles after beating the Trail Blazers a year ago.

Coach Fred Hoiberg told the Tribune that Carter's first team recognition is "well deserved". Wade Baldwin and Jake Layman really hadn't done much on the National Basketball Association stage.

McDaniels was named the Championship Game MVP after his 8-for-14 shooting effort including a few highlight reel plays. He upped those totals in the postseason to 34.0 points plus 9.1 rebounds and 9.0 assists. "It was different guys, different nights, it was very encouraging", Stotts said. So it's clear that summer league performance tells us something meaningful about how players are going to perform going forward. He bested Lonzo Ball's 36-point game from last Summer with this one and helped the Lakers win their 12th straight SL game. After nearly 20 years, it looks like the Los Angeles Lakers may have once again struck (purple and) gold on a Philly-area shooting guard with that Mamba mentality. We talked about the roster.

The Lakers, who won the summer league title in 2017, got 37 points from second-year guard Josh Hart, as well as 31 from rookie Svi Mykhailiuk. Additionally, he's connecting on 47.1 percent of his attempts from the field as he's led the Lakers to the Summer League championship game on Tuesday night against Portland. "I'll talk more about that later down the line". And when you miss shots during a game, it doesn't matter what all you have achieved before that. I play this game to win. "That time can't come soon enough".

The Los Angeles Lakers announced Wednesday that they have signed undrafted free agent Joel Berry II to take part in camp, a day after the team finished runner-up in the Las Vegas Summer League.

Hart is making a strong case for Summer League MVP and seems to be the clubhouse favorite right now.
