The No. 23 pick (and brother of Jrue and Justin) scored eight points in the first three minutes of his team’s loss to the Houston Rockets at Cox Pavilion. He finished with 23 points on 9-for-15 shooting, hitting three of his six 3-point attempts. The 6-1 point guard was the smallest guy on the floor, but was able to get to the basket in both transition and the Pacers’ half-court offense.

The second-year, 6-7 wing from Turkey had himself a night, scoring 40 points in the Sixers’ loss to the Celtics at the Thomas & Mack Center. Korkmaz was a first round pick in 2016, but couldn’t crack the Philly rotation as a rookie last season. He could get another shot with a healthy and productive summer and not only shot 8-for-14 from 3-point range (with an impressive step-back heat check in the fourth quarter), but got to the line 15 times

A look at top performers from the first day of action at the MGM Resorts NBA Summer League:

The undrafted rookie free agent out of Xavier led all scorers with 24 points as the Pelicans clobbered the Raptors in the first game at Thomas & Mack Center. Eighteen of his 24 points came from beyond the arc as the 6-foot-5 shooting guard shot 6-for-8 from deep, banking one in from the right corner at the first quarter buzzer.

If Houston small forward Trevor Ariza can’t find a big-time payday with the Rockets or anyone else, the prospect of joining the Warriors on a one-year deal is known to be of interest. Golden State has also discussed Avery Bradley as an option, which comes as no surprise to anyone who has seen the eight-year veteran hound the Warriors’ scorers these past few years. Bradley’s season was cut short by abdominal surgery in March, and he played just 46 games for Detroit and the Los Angeles Clippers.

Hunter Dozier (R), 1 percent, Kansas City Royals at Seattle Mariners (LHP Marco Gonzales): In a somewhat surprising turn of events, Dozier has remained an everyday player since Lucas Duda came off the disabled list, with Duda assuming primary designated hitter duties. Although all four of his homers have come off righties, Dozier’s rate starts are better with the platoon edge.

Brad Miller (L), 1 percent, Milwaukee Brewers at Cincinnati Reds (RHP Sal Romano): At least for now, the Brewers are content Steven Nelson Youth Jersey to trade Miller’s defensive deficiencies for some thump up the middle. His career Authentic Lavonte David Jersey wRC+ versus lefties is 110. While not outstanding, that’s better than the club has received from Orlando Arcia. Although he has done a better job keeping the ball in the yard lately, Romano has surrendered 14 homers in just 85 frames.
