The Pistons played their first summer league game, and DaJuan Summers made a nice first impression with 24 pionts and seven boards in 33 minutes. My FanHouse colleague Gary Washburn talked to Pistons assistant coach Darrell Walker after the game:
"Summers is a player and I don't know how he goes 35 in the draft," Walker said after Detroit's 86-77 win Friday at Cox Pavilion. "Things happen in the NBA Draft. I ain't crazy, I understand that but he's a legitimate NBA player. And I think he's going to get some legitimate minutes."
I'm joining Gary and the rest of my FanHouse colleagues in Vegas tomorrow morning, and I'll be able to give you a first-hand impressions of Summers, Austin Daye and the rest of the new guys. In the meantime, consider this your weekend / summer league open thread.
