Sam Amico ‏@SamAmicoFSO 11h
Spurs, Lakers and Blazers have all placed calls to Akron 7-footer Zeke Marshall. He'll likely be on summer roster with one. Someone, anyway.

Let's just hope our summer league team isn't as bad as last year's. Didn't we lose every game by like 20 points? :man10:

FABIAN LYON of the Miami Herald wrote:Kenny Boynton Jr. never met a shot he felt he couldn’t make. That supreme confidence which carried Boynton to phenom status on the AAU and Florida high school level and ultimately No. 2 all-time scorer for Florida helped Boynton earn an audition in the NBA summer league.

Bypassed in the NBA Draft last Thursday, Boynton has accepted an invitation to play for the Los Angeles Lakers’ Summer League team, for games July 12-22.

Boynton was a four-year starter for Florida (2,033 points) and helped lead the Gators to three consecutive Elite Eight appearances but concerns over his size (6-2) and 39.9 shooting percentage at Florida left him out of the Top 100 NBA Draft rankings.

Former Blanche Ely coach Melvin Randall, who won the third of his five state titles with Boynton leading the way in 2006-07, believes Boynton could develop into a role similar to the Miami Heat’s Norris Cole, another undersized combo guard.

“Norris Cole wasn’t necessarily a point guard coming out of college but he has established himself as one,” Randall said. “He has been following [Mario] Chalmers’ lead and [Dwyane] Wade’s lead. Now he is in his zone. Junior [Boynton] could thrive in a similar situation. Junior is hungry to learn more and then when the times comes, I think he will be alright.”

The lone Florida player selected in the draft was forward Erik Murphy, who went to the Chicago Bulls with the No. 49 pick.

For whatever reason, Boynton never really established a niche at Florida while playing off the ball for most of his career before given added ball-handling duties as a senior.

“Kenny had a great college career but I don’t think he was given a chance to prepare for that point guard position until his senior year,” Randall said. “He is playing catch-up. He didn’t have a great shooting year but he is always confident in wanting the ball in his hands to make a play. He is never afraid of taking that last shot.”

A streaky shooter, Boynton’s calling card is his ability to put points on the board in a hurry.

As an eighth-grader he drew national attention when he scored a record 45 points at an AAU tournament and followed that by leading Pompano Beach Blanche Ely to the 2006-07 Class 6A state title before averaging 33 points for American Heritage in his senior season.

“Junior will fit best in an uptempo style of play,” Randall said. “The key will be him getting in the paint, off that pick-and-roll and making plays. That will determine the longevity of his professional career. It’s not over. I expect Junior to be a sleeper.”

Mike Trudell ‏@LakersReporter 3h
Douglas-Roberts (@Don_Montecristo) was a favorite of Kobe's last year in camp. He is expected to be on the summer league roster.

D’Antoni said Douglas-Roberts was the player to keep the closest eye on from the roster.

So far, after one quarter, this summer league team is more fun to watch than last seasons team. They're swarming and trapping on defense and aren't having issues scoring, I really didn't expect to see any defense at all. I've never heard of #4 (Lester Hudson?), but he looks like a solid player, not that we would sign him, but he plays under control at the point.

^^ Weezy, how about Mike Brown talking about Earl Clark - "I like his length . . ." :man10: Some things never change. And of course he says he's going to play him at the 3. Great thought Mike. He just loves to make the most non-intuitive choices about player positions. Blake at the 2. Ebanks at the 2. Earl at the 3. I'm very glad he isn't our coach any more even though I can't stand his replacement either.

Mike Brown is a likeable guy, but if he's my coach I can't stand listening to him.

Speaking of which, now they're interviewing 'Antoni, already started with his self deprecating humor. :man10:

Yeah, I actually like Mike Brown as a person. I really don't like D' Antoni. Just a jerk. Mike Brown was never a jerk. Just had some very strange ideas about offense and about his personnel.

Meh, not really impressed by anyone. Landry and Snaer have put up the most points, Selby is big and fast, but out of control. CDR looks bad IMO, like he hasn't played ball in a while. Looks, to me anyway, out of shape and tired, not super into the game or having a real impact. He's limping now too after landing funny in the 3rd I think it was, if this is how he keeps looking he won't make the team and it won't be a bad thing, I'm disappointed.

I liked what I saw from Snaer? I don't know who any of these guys are. :man10:

There was one dude who looked active. I don't remember who it was though... I liked the way Selby looked honestly.

Selby is big and quick, his defense wasn't bad, might not be worse than Morris. I don't know, maybe he gets a camp invite if he plays better from here.

I honestly would prefer him over Morris because he can do what Morris does... And he has the potential to be so much more offensively. He just has a better feel for the game than Morris.

I'd like to see what Kobe can do with guys like Nick Young, Chris Douglas-Roberts (seems to respond to challenges), and Josh Selby.

I don't disagree there, he didn't look more OC than Morris, and athletically he looks way better. His speed surprised me, and his effort on D was there.
