Brooklyn Nets (0-0) vs. Milwaukee Bucks (0-0)
Date: Friday, July 8, 2022

The Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks both kick off their Las Vegas Summer League action on Friday. Brooklyn's roster for this tournament is headlined by second-year pro Cam Thomas. Thomas was named 2021 Summer League Co-MVP after leading the league with 27.0 points per game. The Nets are also bringing five undrafted rookies to Las Vegas.

The Bucks, meanwhile, will get to see No. 24 overall pick MarJon Beauchamp suit up. The 6-foot-6 forward projects to be a bench contributor for Milwaukee after averaging 15.7 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists for the G League Ignite last year.

Nets vs Bucks Prediction & Pick

This is a matchup between two teams taking very different approaches to the Summer League. The Bucks are running out rookies and players that appeared sparingly at the NBA level last season, like 2022 draft pick Hugo Besson and third-year pro Rayjon Tucker.

On the other side, the Nets are using the Summer League as a way to help their second-year pros take another step forward. Thomas needs to show he has the defensive ability to take on more NBA minutes and David Duke has to work on his three-point shooting skills (24.3% in 2021). Those two as well as Kessler Edwards have an opportunity to ball out.

I'll take a motivated Nets crew to pull away in the end and cover a -6.5 spread (-108).
