The top-seeded Lakers are looking to take home back-to-back titles after beating the Trail Blazers past year. Hart became the second consecutive Laker to win the Las Vegas Summer League MVP award after Lonzo Ball took the honor previous year. Six different Trail Blazers finished with double figures including All-NBA Summer League second-teamer Wade Baldwin IV with dropped 14 points, six assists and four rebounds.
Who are the players to watch on each team, and what kind of impact could they have when the real National Basketball Association season begins?
The young Lakers have been playing well during Summer League, and they advanced to the championship game.
Success in Las Vegas in the middle of July doesn't guarantee success the following Winter.
Hart's Summer League ended on a sour note though.
Serena Williams lost in the Wimbledon finals
She had some words for all of her fellow mothers: "To all the moms out there, I was playing out there for you today and I tried". Kerber addressed Williams during the on-court interviews, saying: "You're such an inspiration for everybody, for all of us".
Sidelined in March after undergoing surgery to fix a broken left hand, Hart finished the regular season averaging 7.9 points per game and grabbing 4.2 rebounds per game.
While it is just Summer League, I think it is blatantly clear that Josh Hart has put in the work this offseason and is ready to take that next step of being a solid building block for a contending team. Fellow second-year players Kyle Kuzma and Ball did not participate in the league.
Collins has played well off of Swanigan, particularly on defense, blocking 3.0 shots per game to go with his 8.0 RPG. When specifically asked about this, he said that he had worked really hard on his ball-handling abilities and shooting off the dribble.
He was immediately picked up by the Lakers as a free agent and joined their summer league roster in Las Vegas.
The former Alabama Crimson Tide guard missed two critical free throws down the stretch of the first overtime that could have sent the Cavs to a win.
