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
Casey Janssen got a MRI for his shoulder. It revealed no structural damage.
It seems like Janssen has never got over that shoulder issue that plagued in him 2014, but the Nationals were willing to make him part of their bullpen after trading Tyler Clippard to the Athletics. His value the past three years has come from his saves, something that Drew Storen will be handling and his shoulder troubles are another red flag to stay away from the veteran for the time being.

The Nationals have traded Sandy Leon to the Red Sox.
The Sox have made a move externally to replace Christian Vasquez, who was slated to be the opening day starter, with the Nationals backup catcher in Leon. Leon didn't have any moves left and was most likely to be released so Washington was able to swing something for him. The catching position is unclear in Boston with Ryan Hanigan the supposed catcher by default and Blake Swihart the catcher of the future. However, Leon will get a chance to prove himself after seeing limited time in Washington. Analysis: Rob Trayah
Ex-coach Josh Heupel talked Sam Bradford out of quitting.
Not the most encouraging news if you are an Eagles fan as Bradford is now your starting QB and was a decision away from ending his career. The former St. Louis Ram has torn an ACL twice in his six year career and never fully developed into the number one overall talent that he garnered. He gets a fresh start in Philly after being traded for Nick Foles and joins Chip Kelly's high powered offense that has been revamped for 2016. Analysis: Rob Trayah
