The NBA Summer League got underway in Orlando on Saturday afternoon, with multiple former Big Easters scattered about the rosters.
Let’s see how your favorites did on the first day of action.
The 2016 first-round pick for the Detroit Pistons and Marquette alum looked quite glad to be back out on the court on Saturday, as he lit up the Oklahoma City Thunder’s summer squad for 21 points and nine rebounds. He also missed a three at the buzzer that would have won the game, but it’s all good!

Obviously, you can’t put too much stock into Summer League, but this is certainly a way to start for Ellenson.
The former Georgetown Hoya also had a strong game for the Pistons, racking up 12 points in 19 minutes of action. Unfortunately for Ellenson and Thompson, Detroit fell, 92-91.
The former Xavier standout was on the other side of the court from Ellenson and Thompson as he begins his second season with OKC.
Christon had eight points and eight assists in 31 minutes of action.
Buycks had a game-high 16 points in Dallas’ victory over the New York Knicks, as the former Marquette guard looks to make an NBA roster for the first time since 2015.
Reggie Cameron played 43 seconds in the Orlando Magic’s loss to the Indiana Pacers. He didn’t record a point, shot, assist, foul, or rebound.
Dunham is on Orlando’s Summer League roster, too.
He did not play today.
