3 Most Disappointing Players From NBA Summer League
By Zach Brunner
The NBA Summer League has seen plenty of excitement already, from big performances to notable injuries, to even earthquakes. While some of the top players have flashed their skills and showed why their teams invested in them, there have also been a few big disappointments. These three players are the biggest NBA Summer League disappointments so far.
3. Naz Reid, Timberwolves
Despite being undrafted out of LSU, Reid was given the chance to play big minutes for the Timberwolves Summer League squad. He has failed to impress, or even play well. The former Tiger is averaging eight points and just 2.5 rebounds, showing he is not ready to play in the paint at the next level quite yet.
2. Nassir Little, Blazers
The Trail Blazers had high expectations for Nassir Little when they selected him with the 25th overall pick, but those expectations have not been close to met so far. Little is averaging just 4.5 points, 0.5 assists and 4.5 rebounds per game in the Summer League. He finished with seven points and five rebounds in 22 minutes of action in his last outing.
1. RJ Barrett, Knicks
RJ Barrett has been yet another disappointment this summer for Knicks fans. The third overall pick has averaged just nine points, one assist and 7.5 rebounds per game in the Summer League. And despite last night's loss going into overtime, he still failed to reach double-digits in points and he turned the ball over eight times.
