7 Takeaways from First Day at 2013 Orlando Summer League
USA TODAY Sports

The 2013-14 regular season is still months away, but now that the Orlando Summer League has kicked off, fans around the NBA will get a chance to do some early scouting on some of the league's most intriguing young players.

The usual caveats apply here: Reading too much into summer league performances is like judging a movie on its 30-second trailer. You'll see a lot of the good parts, but until there's some real context, it's almost impossible to know whether you should put any stock into what you're watching.

Still, rookies like Trey Burke and Victor Oladipo have serious questions attached to their games, and the summer league is the first opportunity they'll have to answer them. Without spoiling too much, let's just say that the Orlando Magic are probably feeling a little bit better about their young guard than the Utah Jazz are about theirs after Sunday.

There was some sloppy play, a handful of highlights and even a man-child that clearly didn't belong on the first day of the Orlando Summer League. Consider this your summarized version of the day's key takeaways.
