Josh Jackson: Summer League Recap The Phoenix Suns rookies shined in the first Summer League action against the Sacramento Kings. Josh Jackson put on a show for the Vegas crowd as he scored 18 points while grabbing eight rebounds in his Suns debut. “I think we are meshing together pretty well,” Jackson said. “I think it’s more important to us than any team here just because we’ve got so many guys on the Summer League team who are actually going to be expected to play major minutes this year. It’s something that we’ve really got to take serious and I think we did.” Davon Reed shined off the bench in the victory over the Kings, as the 32nd pick in the draft put up 17 points while shooting 50 percent
Editor's note: This story was originally published on August 18, 2016. With NBA free agency wrapping up, we're bringing it back. If this was a list of biggest flops regarding any acquisition, it would be a two-dog race between Lamar Odom and Rajon Rondo. But both of those players came to Dallas in trades. So when it comes to biggest free-agent whiffs, the list is not as jaw-dropping as the one for traded players is. But here's our countdown of the worst signings the Mavericks have had since 2000. (Editor's note: Yes, DeAndre Jordan could presumably be on this list, but as someone who never actually suited up as a free agent signing for the Mavericks we decided to omit him.) 5.

Former Portland Trail Blazer Luis Montero is signing a two-way contract with the Detroit Pistons, according to Jorge Sierra of HoopsHype. Montero, now 26, played for the Trail Blazers during the 2015-16 season, totaling 42 minutes of action through 12 games. He was waived by the team in October, promptly signed by the Miami Heat for training camp, and waived again four days later. This year, Montero played Summer League ball for the Dallas Mavericks in Orlando and the Sacramento Kings in Las Vegas, averaging 8.2 points and 4.4 points, respectively. Player’s on two-way contracts can spend up to 45 days with the team that signed them; the rest of their time under contract must be spent in the G-League.
