Three games are scheduled for the third day of the Orlando Summer League.

The Orlando NBA Summer League is now in full swing and some of the more high profile rookies competing there are already leaving a mark. In Indiana, Myles Turner has the Pacers feeling confident about their center position despite losing Roy Hibbert. Mario Hezonja has the Magic dreaming of what their linuep could look like with a legitimate shooter helping space the floor. Stanley Johnson is showing that there was a reason Stan Van Gundy went with him over Justise Winslow.

Three more games will take place Monday, and all three of these promising rookies will be on the floor. If you want to watch the games yourself you can do so by purchasing NBA Summer League Live. Some games may be shown on NBA TV.

Magic White vs Pacers , 1 p.m. ET

Players to watch: Pacers first round pick Myles Turner looked great in his summer league debut on Saturday, scoring 20 points, pulling down eight rebounds and swatting three shots in 28 minutes of action. The 19-year-old Turner hit shots from all over the floor and showed why the Pacers selected him with the 11th overall pick in the Draft a few weeks ago. With Roy Hibbert now headed to the Lakers the Pacers are hoping Turner is ready to contribute sooner rather than later. Seeing how he plays in Orlando will be interesting to watch.

One interesting name on the Magic's White team is Glenn Rice Jr. A second round pick by the Sixers two years ago, Rice has struggled finding a groove in the NBA and has spent most of the past two seasons playing in the D-League. The 24-year-old 6'6 swingman was once considered a potential NBA prospect. This summer might be his last chance to prove that he deserves another shot.

Thunder vs. Magic Blue, 3 p.m. ET

Players to watch: Mario Hezonja, the No. 5 overall pick and the highest 2014 draft selection competing in the Orlando Summer League, scored 12 points in his team's first Summer League game, three of which came on a game-winning three-pointer. Hezonja might already be the best shooter among the many guards on the Magic's roster and any proof in these games that he's ready to play 20-plus minutes a night in the NBA would be welcomed by Orlando's front office.

Mitch McGary, the Thunder's 2014 first round pick, is on Oklahoma City's Summer League roster. He had eight points and 13 rebounds in his last game.

Heat vs. Pistons, 5 p.m. ET

Players to watch: Another pair of high-profile rookies will face off in this game. The Pistons surprised many when they elected to take Stanley Johnson with the eighth overall pick instead of Justise Winslow, who wound up falling to the Heat at No. 10. Johnson is averaging 18.5 points in two games so far at the Orlando Summer League; Winslow is scoring 14.5, while dishing out 3.5 assists. Also on the Heat Summer League roster: Shabazz Napier, who's looking to prove that he's an NBA player after all.
