2015 NBA Summer League: Big Ten Day 9 & 10 Stats, Recap, and Analysis

The 2015 NBA Summer League is in full swing with a boatload of former Big Ten players in action.

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

The Summer League is in full swing and there are a bunch of former Big Ten players in action.  Though this is not an NBA site, many of these former Big Ten players are fighting for a roster position in the Summer League and these games will have a large impact on how many players from the Big Ten make 2015-16 NBA rosters.  Success in the pros is highly related to a program's success, which makes the Summer League highly relevant for many of the programs in the Big Ten.  Here are some of the highlights from Day 9.

We detailed the full Summer League rosters and now we are going to be following those players during their games this summer.

Thoughts

Once again, please insert a "grain of salt" warning with everyone of my statements regarding the Summer League.  The competition is much different than your typical NBA regular or postseason game and as such, you really have to evaluate these games differently.  Players aren't going to run into a LeBron or Durant in these games.  Fans can still get an idea of how players are progressing, but the level of competition and seriousness of these games are definitely different than what takes place in a normal NBA game.  FYI, this first paragraph is going to run on each one of these recaps just as a general reminder about the significance of the Summer League.

There were a few interesting developments on Sunday and Monday in the Las Vegas Summer League.  Some of the guys that really produced in this span were Adreian Payne, Glenn Robinson III, and Noah Vonleh.  All three put up some really nice individual games and it involved more than just scoring.  Payne and Vonleh both performed well on the boards and GR3 put up probably his best two games of the summer.  All three are looking to take a step forward heading into next season and these could be some early signs.

Also, GR3 did this:

A few other players that are battling for roster positions made some noise on Day 9 and Day 10.  These were Aaron Craft, Drew Crawford, and Austin Hollins.  Craft may not have light up the scoreboard in either of his two games, but he had a nice distribution and made an impact on the offensive and defensive end, which is always nice to see when competing for a roster spot.  Along with this, Crawford put two nice games, and Hollins likely had his best game of the summer on Day 10 with 13 points and 3 rebounds.  These could be a few guys to watch down the stretch.

Unfortunately, there was also some disappointing news as well:
Obviously, that's bad news for Dekker and Houston fans.  The good news is that Dekker will not be fighting for a roster spot and will have plenty of time to heal up for the season.  Plus, who knows, maybe he can make it back on the floor before things wrap up in Las Vegas.
