LAS VEGAS — It was hot and heavy day at the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas on Monday.
And that was just outside of Thomas & Mack Arena and Cox Pavilion, where temperatures settled comfortably (uncomfortably?) into triple-digit territory.
Fortunately, the gyms themselves were air-conditioned, though the flood of fans, players, reporters, coaches, scouts, executives and other league affiliates—including commissioner Adam Silver—did plenty to bring the climate inside more in line with that found outdoors.
So, too, did the action on the court.
Bruno Caboclo shed some of the shroud of mystery that's surrounded him since the Toronto Raptors took him with the 20th pick in the 2014 draft. Dante Exum did the same while competing against the Milwaukee Bucks' potent duo of Jabari Parker and Giannis Antetokounmpo. Nerlens Noel tried (and occasionally failed) to keep Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett out of the Philadelphia 76ers' lane.
And that's just the surface-scratching stuff. Read on to see what else Day 4 of Summer League in Sin City had in store.
