ORL: Work With the Backcourt

The Orlando Magic have one of the more “veteran” squads in this Las Vegas Summer League. On top of their lottery pick Franz Wagner, the Magic boast five players with at least one year of NBA experience.

The key for Orlando will be seeing how well their backcourt of Jalen Suggs and Cole Anthony can create for their squad.

The first game of summer league can be rough, as a rag-tag group of NBA hopefuls are all looking to impress. However with Jamahl Mosley at the helm, whether or not they can successfully run the offense will determine their success and longevity with the squad.

Magic Key Player: (G) Jalen Suggs


All eyes will be on former Gonzaga star Jalen Suggs. Orlando’s newly acquired point guard was the fifth pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, and will be the last of his top five batch to perform in Summer League.

Suggs enters the Las Vegas Summer League as a dynamic, do-it-all point guard who loves to work at speed. In his last season at Gonzaga, Suggs averaged 14.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 4.5 assists per game.

Sure to want to make an impact on the game, Jalen Suggs will be heavily involved in Jamahl Mosley’s gameplan. With his head coach overseeing the team, Suggs will need to do more than score to impress.

GSW: Diamonds in the Rough

The Golden State Warriors are set at a number of positions, but through the Summer League they’ll be looking for some surprise contributors for both their main team and their G-League affiliate.

Most eyes will be on Jonathan Kuminga, but five-year NBA veteran Gary Payton II will be deployed to run the offence. In 13 games with Raptors 905 in 2020-2021, Payton II averaged 10.5 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 2.4 steals in just 21.8 minutes per game.

The Warriors are looking for players who are willing defenders and can move the ball selflessly, so expect an egalitarian effort against the Magic.

Warriors Key Player: (F) Jonathan Kuminga


The less-heralded of the G-League Ignite products, Jonathan Kuminga finally gets to show off why he was selected in the top ten of the 2021 NBA Draft.

Just 18-years-old, Kuminga already boasts incredible athleticism and strength. His offensive game isn’t very refined, but still averaged 15.8 points and 7.2 rebounds with the Ignite team.

Kuminga’s upside is tremendous, but on a squad that touts only one player with notable NBA or G-League experience, he is sure to get his chances.
