Detroit Pistons guard Jaden Ivey dazzled in a limited run during the Las Vegas Summer League and looks to be in store for a strong rookie campaign next season.

Ivey scored 20 points, six rebounds and six assists in his debut with the Pistons on July 8. He suffered an ankle injury just five minutes into his next start and would not return for the duration of the Pistons’ stay in Las Vegas. He managed to put up 11 points prior to the injury.

The fifth pick certainly had a strong run last month, and looks to be a good addition to the roster. He figures to have a large role and was even recently ranked by HoopsHype as the 25th-best shooting guard in the NBA for the 2022-23 season.

Jaden Ivey arrives to the NBA with huge potential as a fill-it-up 2-guard who can score, rebound, pass and defend, one who just needs to tweak his jumper and learn how to play at different speeds to unlock his full potential. … Ivey has all-league potential and playing a position that’s down right now with regards to top-end talent. He has the opportunity to blossom into one of the NBA’s best at the 2-guard spot as he develops over the coming years.

The case can be made that Ivey likely wouldn’t have played much longer in Las Vegas had he not been injured. He showed what he can bring to the next level against NBA-caliber players as the Pistons likely saw everything they needed from him.

Injury or not, Ivey looked to be electric on the court and should fit right in very well next to Cade Cunningham & Co. He enters the season with high expectations but, by all accounts, is a player that has no problem reaching that level of play on a nightly basis.
