Featured Game: Thunder vs. Pistons
For a hoops fan, there's nothing like Summer League. Basketball all day. The future of the league before you. Arena snacks.
For a Top Shot collector, with our first-ever in-arena Moments on the way, today's gonna be another level.
And we're getting started at 5:30 pm PDT / 8:30 pm EDT with one of the day's best matchups: the Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Detroit Pistons.
In a game that sees the Summer League debut of No. 1 Draft pick Cade Cunningham, these two teams feature a lineup packed with great young talent -- including sophomores Killian Hayes (DET), Saddiq Bey (DET), Theo Maledon (OKC) and third-year player, Sekou Doumboya (DET).
The Thunder are a little lower on players with Top Shot Moments already, bringing a crew of drafted and undrafted rookies including Oscar Da Silva, Josh Giddey, Tre Mann, Jeremiah Robinson-Earl and Aaron Wiggins.
Starting with the Pistons, Saddiq Bey is the unquestioned leader of this Summer League team coming off his All-Rookie season. Bey shot almost 40% from three and was very disciplined defensively coming from Jay Wright’s Villanova program. Bey will be playing alongside Cunningham for the first time, two players that will be on the floor for a significant amount of time together this season.
Killian Hayes is another important piece to Detroit’s future, but due to injury, he was only able to play in 26 games. Already a great distributor, expect Hayes to round out his game with more time on the court in 2020-21.
Sekou Doumbouya had some flashes of brilliance toward the end of last season. He will look to gain momentum as he pushes second year player Isaiah Stewart for more minutes during the season. Unfortunately, Stewart will be unable to play in this game.
On the other side, there's second-year Euro sensation Theo Maledon. The France native proved that he belonged with the best young players in the league as he was named to the Rising Stars game (not played due to Covid-19). He already played for several years for ASVEL in the French basketball league and is a massive stand-out at only 20 years old.
This should be a fun one, with some high profile names. Make sure to visit Top Shot at Section 111 on the concourse if you are at Summer League, and swing by the Top Shot Section in 114 if you're a Collector.
