    Spencer logged 13 points (5-6 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, seven assists and four steals across 27 minutes of Wednesday's 96-85 win over the Cavaliers in Summer League.

    Spencer tied for the team high in assists Wednesday while committing only one turnover. He was also active defensively, logging four steals. The 28-year-old will be on a two-way contract this season for Golden State but will likely spend most of his time with the team's G League affiliate.

    Castleton logged 17 points (8-9 FG, 1-1 FT), 12 rebounds, six assists and two steals across 24 minutes of Wednesday's 87-86 win over Atlanta in Summer League.

    Castleton flashed his versatile skill set, dishing out six assists while posting a double-double. The second-year pro did turn the ball over five times, but he led the Lakers in scoring, and four of his 12 rebounds came on the offensive glass. Castleton served on a two-way contract last season for the Lakers and averaged 3.7 minutes across 16 regular-season NBA appearances.

    Roddy logged 21 points (7-13 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, five assists a steal and a block over 28 minutes of Wednesday's 100-99 Summer League win over the Thunder.

    Roddy was fouled while attempting a game-winning three-pointer with less than a second left and sunk all three free throws to vault the Suns to victory. Roddy was dealt to Phoenix at the trade deadline last season and didn't play more than 10 minutes in a game with the Suns. Similarly, Roddy is expected to be a fringe rotation piece in 2024-25.

    Pippen has turned some heads during his third Summer League stint and is certainly making a case to be the Grizzlies' backup point guard behind Ja Morant. Pippen and GG Jackson combined for 52 of Memphis' 104 points, while Pippen's nine assists led the team.

    Edey (ankle) didn't play in Wednesday's 104-98 win over the Magic but is expected to return before the end of Summer League, Drew Hill of The Daily Memphian reports.

    Edey sprained his ankle during Salt Lake City Summer League and hasn't suited up in a little over one week. The Grizzlies have indicated the injury is minor, and they're just being cautious with the ninth overall pick. Still, the expectation is that he'll be back before Summer League ends. Edey's next chance to play will be Thursday against New Orleans.

    The Spurs signed Bassey (knee) to a one-year, $2.2 million contract Tuesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Bassey made just 19 appearances for the Spurs in 2023-24 before suffering a torn ACL. While he is expected to return in the first half of the 2024-25 campaign, Bassey will likely compete for depth minutes in San Antonio's frontcourt.

    Clingan had plenty of chances in the paint but was unable to capitalize, hitting only 36.4 percent of his tries from the field. However, he continues to be a menace on the defensive end, swatting away three shots after a five-block performance Saturday against San Antonio. Clingan's battle for playing time will continue Tuesday against the Wizards.

    Filipowski submitted 20 points (9-16 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, three steals and a block during 26 minutes of Wednesday's 86-76 win over the Raptors in Summer League.

    Filipowski has been a standout performer for the Jazz in Las Vegas, averaging 14.3 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.0 combined steals-plus-blocks in three games played. The seven-footer has also knocked down three of his six attempts from distance. While Filipowski is better fit to play the five, he could see most of his action in 2024-25 at the power forward spot considering the Jazz's center depth.

    Hendricks recorded 20 points (9-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, a steal and a block across 29 minutes of Wednesday's 86-76 win over the Raptors in Summer League.

    Hendricks paced the Jazz in points and rebounds Wednesday, falling just one rebound shy of a double-double. The second-year forward had combined to score 11 points in his first two Summer League games in Las Vegas, so Wednesday's outburst was a much-needed bounce-back game. Hendricks started in 23 of his 40 appearances as a rookie and is slated to open the season as Utah's starting power forward.

    Pelicans' Karlo Matkovic: Gets three-year deal from New Orleans
    4d ago

    Matkovic agreed to a three-year, $4.9 million contract with the Pelicans on Sunday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Selected by the Pelicans with the No. 52 overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft, Matkovic spent most of the last two seasons in Europe before joining New Orleans' G League affiliate, the Birmingham Squadron, this past February. He appeared in 10 games for Birmingham, averaging 17.3 points, 8.1 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 31.3 minutes per game. After recording eight points and eight rebounds for the Pelicans in his first outing in the Las Vegas Summer League on Friday, Matkovic has now been formally added to the club's 15-man roster after signing a contract, which includes a team option for 2026-27. Matkovic could find his way into the rotation for a new-look Pelicans squad that wasn't able to retain two key frontcourt players in Jonas Valanciunas and Naji Marshall in free agency.

    Salaun logged eight points (3-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), seven rebounds and one assist over 14 minutes in Saturday's 94-90 Summer League win over the Knicks.

    Selected with the No. 6 pick in the 2024 NBA Draft, Salaun is considered a long-term bet on upside for the Hornets. In the short term, the Hornets could utilize his wingspan, athleticism and defensive energy off the bench. While playing for Cholet in France in the 2023-24 season, the forward averaged 9.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.0 assists.

    Middleton had left ankle surgery shortly after Milwaukee's playoff exit, then had his right ankle operated on in mid-June. The surgeries were deemed a success and were necessary to help Middleton get rid of his lingering soreness in both. The good news for the Bucks is that Middleton is expected to be ready for the start of the 2024-25 campaign. During the 2023-24 regular season, Middleton was limited to 55 games and produced averages of 15.1 points, 4.7 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 1.7 three-pointers.

    Even with an off night from three-point land, Scheierman was able to make a positive impact Wednesday. He led the Celtics in rebounds and was one of four players to score in double figures. However, he isn't likely to factor into the Celtics nightly rotation during regular-season play.

    Terms of the deal have yet to be reported, but given Milwaukee's cap situation, Trent likely agreed to this deal for a massive discount as he pursues a championship with the Bucks. Milwaukee's roster was in desperate need of some backcourt depth and perimeter shooting, and it's likely that Trent will play a key role for this team. Still only 25 years old, Trent holds career regular-season averages of 14.3 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.5 three-pointers.
