It will be a busy Saturday in the Las Vegas Summer League, as there are seven games on tap. The slate of games will tip off at 4 p.m. ET with a battle between the Golden State Warriors and the Washington Wizards. Let's take a brief look at the key players in each game on the docket.
Golden State Warriors vs. Washington Wizards, 4 p.m.
Players to watch: For the Warriors, first-round draft pick Nemanja Nedovic likely won't play due to an ankle injury. That should give Scott Machado, a star of the 2012 Summer League, plenty of time at point guard. Second-year players Draymond Green and Kent Bazemore have the tools to dominate the competition. Meanwhile, many eyes will be on Otto Porter, the No. 3 overall pick for Washington. Jan Vesely, the No. 6 pick in 2011, will also be in action.
Sacramento Kings vs. Dallas Mavericks, 6 p.m.
Players to watch: No. 7 pick Ben McLemore should be the star for Sacramento. The Kings' guard has the potential to flourish thanks to his scoring ability and athleticism. Point guard Ray McCallum is also one to look out for, as the Kings' second-round pick enjoyed a very productive college career. For the Mavericks, second-round pick Ricky Ledo takes the court after not playing a single game in college. Jae Crowder, a 2012 Summer League star, is playing in the Summer League again this season.
Minnesota Timberwolves vs. D-League Select Team, 6:30 p.m.
Players to watch: Shabazz Muhammad was one of the top prospects coming out of high school, but his stock dropped due to an age scandal and an uneven year at UCLA. Still, the No. 14 pick has plenty of talent and he will put it on display for Minnesota. No. 21 pick Gorgui Dieng will also suit up for Minnesota. He was a dominant defensive player during his college career. The D-League Select Team features Darnell Jackson and Kyle Weaver, two former college stars who have each spent time in the NBA.
Chicago Bulls vs. Memphis Grizzlies, 8 p.m.
Players to watch: No. 20 pick Tony Snell will play for Chicago, possibly showing off the solid shooting stroke and defensive ability that intrigued the Bulls. Second-year point guard Marquis Teague struggled at times during the 2012 Summer League. A strong 2013 performance, however, could help him work his way into the Bulls' rotation. For the Grizzlies, 2012 first-round pick Tony Wroten will get a chance to run the team, while 2013 second-round pick Jamaal Franklin will make his debut.
Phoenix Suns vs. Portland Trail Blazers, 8:30 p.m.
Players to watch: Kendall Marshall returns after a poor 2012 Summer League performance and an uneventful 2012-13 NBA regular season. Archie Goodwin, the No, 29 pick in the 2013 draft, will likely play next to Marshall in the backcourt. The Blazers have a lot of NBA talent on their Summer League roster, and there's even a chance Damian Lillard plays a bit. Second-year big man Meyers Leonard is a player to monitor, as are 2013 draft picks C.J. McCollum and Allen Crabbe.
Denver Nuggets vs. Milwaukee Bucks, 10 p.m.
Players to watch: Nuggets 2012 first-round draft pick Evan Fournier didn't play much last season, but he should have plenty of time to shine in Las Vegas. Second-round pick Erick Green will be intriguing to watch for his scoring potential, while 2012 second-round pick Quincy Miller has loads of ability. For the Bucks, second-round pick Nate Wolters transitions to the NBA after four seasons at South Dakota State. John Henson is probably the best player on Milwaukee's roster.
Miami Heat vs. Toronto Raptors, 10:30 p.m.
Players to watch: The two-time defending champion Heat also played in the Orlando Summer League. Second-round pick James Ennis showed some flashes in Orlando. Undrafted point guard Myck Kabongo will get another shot to prove that he can run the show. The Raptors' roster is headlined by 2011 No. 5 pick Jonas Valanciunas and 2012 No. 8 pick Terrence Ross.
