2015 NBA Summer League: Big Ten Days 12-14 Stats, Recap, and Analysis

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

Jerome Miron-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 Days 12, 13, and 14.

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's a lot of action condensed here and some truly remarkable performances for the Big Ten.  The guys who really showed up over these three days were Tim Frazier, Adreian Payne, and Noah Vonleh.  Frazier really had some nice numbers on each day both on the scoreboard and in passing the ball.  Payne put up some monster numbers himself including a 14 point and 15 rebound game on Day 14, which is definitely impressive.  Vonleh wasn't getting a ton of attention at the start of Summer League play, but has actually put together one of the top performances to date and his 20 point and 9 rebound game on Day 13 was huge.

A few of the other players to put up some nice games included Duje Dukan, Gabe Olaseni, and Terran Petteway.  Dukan and Olaseni don't have the raw numbers that Petteway has all put up, but they are certainly getting some attention, which is great for two guys who likely will not land on an NBA roster, but could be in the discussion in a year or two.  For Petteway, he's made a lot of noise and looks like a serious contender to land on an NBA roster next season if he can finish strong.

Also worth noting, Traevon Jackson did this:

Of course, there were also some disappointments.  Notably, Sam Dekker and Dez Wells have been suffering through injuries and have really not seen the floor.  Both were looking to make some noise in the Summer League and it looks like things just aren't going to go their way this year.  Dekker will be in action next season and perhaps Wells can still find his way onto a roster before next year.
