Bulls Compete in Vegas Summer League

ImageUs sports junkies don’t know what to do with ourselves these days. I will be honest though, I’ve enjoyed the break since the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup. After that adrenaline rush, I’ve even managed to sit down and watch a bunch of new releases from the RedBox. Then there is the Chicago Sky, who with rookie sensation Elena Delle Donne, look like they will make the playoffs for the first time in franchise history. As for MLB, well the Cubs weren’t playing for this year anyway. I don’t know why, that’s something to ask Theo about. So while we’re waiting for football, why not check out your team’s draft picks and possibly future players in the NBA Summer League.

Bulls Assistant Coach Adrian Griffin will coach Chicago’s summer league team and he will be assisted by fellow assistants Andy Greer, Ed Pinckney and Mike Wilhelm. The team consists of PG Marques Teaque, 1st-round draft pick SG Tony Snell, 2nd-round pick F Erik Murphy out of Florida and F Malcolm Thomas who played significant minutes with the team last season. Looking at the 13-man roster, two other names grabbed my attention. A guard named Charles Boozer. Now I don’t know if he’s related to Carlos, but that is a unique name. And PF Deon Thompson a rookie out of North Carolina, who I believe is a pretty decent player. When you’ve got North Carolina next to your name, you’re always worth taking a look at. So here’s the NBA Summer League schedule and maybe when you’re not watching anything much, like I found myself today, you can turn over to NBATV and see a little of the action!
