Washington Wizards guard Glen Rice Jr. was named 2014 Samsung NBA Summer League MVP.
Here is a look at the last seven players to earn Vegas Summer League MVP honors: '13: Valanciunas/Lamb, '12: Lillard, '10: Wall, '09: Griffin, '08: Bayless, '07: N. Robinson, and '06: Randy Foye. Looking at this list you would have to say history is on Rice's side to have a solid impact this coming season, or at least in the near future. Will it be anywhere near the level of the previous winners is debatable, but considering his bloodlines and experience he is definitely worth taking a shot on in your dynasty hoops leagues.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Rays designated P Grant Balfour for assignment.
There's no word as to why Balfour was DFA'd here as he's pitched pretty well so far, especially for a guy who had to leave the team during spring training to help take care of his ailing father. He did hit a bump in the road Saturday when he allowed three earned runs in two-thirds of an inning, but before that, he had made five appearances, pitched 3 2/3 innings and allowed two hits with no runs. The Rays will likely give some reason for the move, but look for Balfour to pick up with another team fairly quickly. Analysis: Howard Bender
