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
Le'Veon Bell (knee) hasn't been cleared to start running yet.
After an injury plagued 2015 season, Bell is looking to get healthy and be ready for the regular season. He has not yet been cleared to start running but with the Super Bowl not being played yet, Bell has time to get back into shape. Expect him and the Steelers training staff to work hard on getting him ready for the regular season where he should be considered a top fantasy RB. Analysis: Dillon Conklin
Kings are strongly weighing the firing of coach George Karl.
It has been rumored for quite some time that it wouldn't be long before Karl was out as the coach in Sacramento. It seems like that time has come as Karl has lost support in the front office among other riffs with players on the team. There is no doubt Karl is a great coach but this fit with the Kings just wasn't a good one from the start. Analysis: Dillon Conklin
