As NBA free agency begins to slow down, basketball fans have on-court action to look forward to thanks to the NBA Summer League.
The Orlando Summer League and Utah Summer League ended last week, but the Las Vegas Summer League is in full swing, with 24 NBA teams competing for the NBA Summer League championship.

Here’s a look at the top performers, game-winners and other highlights from the first week of summer league play.
The participants in this year’s All-Star Game will surely have fond memories 30 years from now. But they are likely to lack the wonder and the unique camaraderie that existed in the pre-interleague days, when the All-Star Game stood as the highlight of the season even for players who racked up eye-popping numbers.
(The) ’87 (highlight), for me, is the All-Star Game, said Langston, who set career-highs with 19 wins, an AL-leading 262 strikeouts, 14 complete games and 272 innings pitched. It was cool to sit in the locker room and look around and see the guys that you compete against (and) are now on the same side.
It was one of those things where you just 鈥?you never really (picture) yourself in that position, you’re sort of (freaking out), said McGwire, who won the AL Rookie of the Year after hitting a rookie-record 49 homers. You’re like, 鈥極h my gosh, I’m here with all these guys.’ And you just look at the names back there. Oh my gosh, yes.

Darnold’s possible reasons are worth a separate deep dig entirely, especially if he has a chance to go first overall no matter how he plays this season, or even how much. (See Mitchell Trubisky, Jared Goff, Carson Wentz, Sam Bradford and plenty of others.)
