Players named to the Vegas Summer League First-Team: Doug McDermott & Tony Snell (Chi); Otto Porter & Glen Rice Jr (Was); Donatas Motiejunas (Hou).
Read this somewhere and not sure if it is humorous or a question of deep morality, but quick compare McDermott to a non-white player. While you ponder that I will point out that he was the only member of the 2014 draft class to be selected to the first-team and one of just four to make either the first or second All-Vegas Summer League team. Dougie McBuckets finished his five games averaging 18 points on 44.2% shooting from the field and an even better percentage from long-distance at 44.4% while missing just one of his 23 free throws to go with a per game average of four boards and almost three assists numbers that would make Kyle Korver proud. Oh wait, he's white, so how about Sam Perkins?ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Rajai Davis said Sunday evening that he doesn't believe his groin injury is serious.
Davis pulled up limp on a single during Sunday's game after having a ridiculous series against the Indians. He stole three bases on Saturday and scored three runs in both games and fantasy owners jumped at the chance to add Davis. However, a problem to the leg area is a major concern for a speed guy like the center-fielder. Don't be surprised to see the Tigers play it safe for a bit and have Anthony Gose fill in for Davis until he is healthy. Analysis: Rob Trayah
Redskins are likely to pick up Robert Griffin III's option for 2016.
The true answer is "They better pick it up". The deal to pick up Griffin cost the Redskins a fortune so it shouldn't be that big of a surprise, even with the troubles he has had, that Washington is picking up the option for next year. He will have another year under Jay Gruden and his system before heading into 2016 so this might be a trade value season for RG3. Analysis: Rob Trayah
