The Sunday NBA schedule includes eight Las Vegas Summer League games. The Cleveland Cavaliers and 2014's first pick, Andrew Wiggins, get things started at 4 p.m. ET against the final first-round pick of the 2014 in San Antonio Spurs forward Kyle Anderson. All times are Eastern.
Cavaliers vs. Spurs, 4 p.m
Players to watch: Wiggins got off to a fine NBA start on Friday by scoring 18 against the Bucks. Cleveland could use another strong performance from last year's first overall pick, Anthony Bennett, as well. The trimmed-down forward scored an aggressive 15 in his summer league opener. San Antonio will counter with Kyle Anderson, who could answer some questions about his defensive abilities playing against Wiggins. Providence guard Bryce Cotton and forward Austin Daye are two more Spurs youngsters to keep an eye on.
Players to watch: New Orleans comes into Sunday on fumes from a 21-2 run to end their comeback win against the D-League select squad on Friday. Louisville product Russ Smith dropped 20 points and five dimes in the 83-81 win and fellow rookie Patric Young bulldozed his way to a double-double. Another name to watch for the Pelicans is veteran Josh Howard, who is attempting his NBA comeback with the squad. The Lakers are led by former lottery pick Kendall Marshall, but it was rookie guard Jordan Clarkson who shined in Los Angeles' first game in Vegas as he scored 21.
Players to watch: The Kings bring in one of the more veteran squads to Vegas with NBA-experienced forwards Derrick Williams and Quincy Acy leading a starting lineup that also includes rookie Nik Stauskas and the second-year pros Ben McLemore and Ray McCallum. Charlotte is hoping its Friday game was a fluke. Ninth-overall pick Noah Vonleh went 0-for-13 for zero points and six boards while fellow 2014 first-round pick P.J. Hairston shot 2-for-16. Unsigned rookie Josh Davis out of San Diego State shined with 14 points and 16 rebounds in his first game, and the good news for the Hornets is last year's fourth overall pick, Cody Zeller, will be available after missing the game on Friday to attend his brother's wedding.
Hawks vs. D-League Select, 6:30 p.m.
Players to watch: Second-year point guard Dennis Schroder hopes to shake off a 2-for-13 shooting performance for the Hawks, and so does rookie forward Adreian Payne; who hit just 5-of-15 from the floor in Atlanta's debut loss to the Wizards on Saturday. The D-League select squad has a balanced roster that last got fine performances on Friday from Trent Lockett and NBA vet Devin Ebanks.
Players to watch: The Bulls got an efficient evening on Saturday from second-year pro Tony Snell, who poured in 27 points thanks to knocking down five three-pointers against the Clippers. This year's draft pick, Doug McDermott, got off to a decent start by scoring 10 points to go with five rebounds and four assists despite a less-than impressive shooting night. Denver will counter with a dangerous scoring trio of former Virginia Tech guard Erick Green, NBA vet Quincy Miller and first-round draft pick Gary Harris, who dropped 33 against the Raptors on Saturday.
Blazers vs. Rockets, 8:30 p.m.
Players to watch: The rematch of a thrilling playoffs series from 2013-14 features several Blazers regular season roster players. Guards C.J. McCollum and Will Barton are hoping a strong summer propels them into Terry Stotts' rotation, while veteran bigs Thomas Robinson and Joel Freeland help to fill out the starting lineup. Houston's roster includes big man Donatas Motiejunas in addition to a guard duo of Isaiah Canaan and rookie Nick Johnson, both of whom scored in double-figures in their Las Vegas openers on Saturday.
Players to watch: Milwaukee got 17-point performances from 2014's second-overall pick Jabari Parker and 2013 lottery choice Giannis Antetokounmpo on Friday. The Suns will hope that second-year guard Archie Goodwin and 14th overall pick from 2014, T.J. Warren, can keep pace after they led the Suns with 22 and 17 points on Saturday. Phoenix is also hoping for better performances from big men Miles Plumlee and Alex Len.
Wizards vs. Timberwolves, 10:30 p.m.
Players to watch: Otto Porter made a statement with a 25-point outing on Saturday as the Wizards blew past the Hawks. He wasn't alone, as fellow second-year pro Glen Rice Jr. added 22 points and got to the foul stripe 16 times. The wing matchup will therefore be intriguing with Timberwolves forward Shabazz Muhammad coming off a 27-point, 11-rebound game on Saturday. Minnesota's roster also includes vets Gorgui Dieng and Alexei Shved along with rookies Zach LaVine and Glenn Robinson III.
