Day 3

Marcus Derrickson, Warriors

Add Derrickson to the list of undrafted prospects with something to prove. The 22-year old Georgetown product posted a monster double-double with 24 points and 11 rebounds (four offensive) in the Warriors 77-71 win over the Lakers. Four seemed to be the magic number for the 6-foot-7 forward, as he knocked down four of his seven 3-point attempts, all four of his free throw attempts and finished the game with four steals.

Moe Wagner, Lakers

A 13 point, 13 rebound double-double gets Wagner back on the list after a relatively quiet performance on Day 2. The Lakers' first-round pick shot at a 50 percent clip from the field (5-for-10) and from beyond the arc (2-for-4). He also protected the rim, blocking four shots in the loss.

Harry Giles III, Kings

Giles closed out the Sacramento Summer League with a double-double (11 points, 12 rebounds). In 27 minutes, he was 5-for-8 from the field and pulled down four offensive boards. Giles did, however commit seven turnovers and seven fouls (10 fouls lead to disqualification in summer league).

Marvin Bagley III, Kings

Bagley struggled in his final summer league performance in front of his home crowd in Sacramento. In 29 minutes, the No. 2 pick missed both of his shot attempts, finishing with one point, three rebounds, one block and two turnovers in a 10-point loss to the Heat.

Day 2

Duncan Robinson, Heat

Robinson, an undrafted forward from the University of Michigan scored an extremely efficient 19 points in just 19 minutes of action. The 6-foot-8 sharpshooter was 7-for-9 from the field and connected on five of six 3-point attempts. Robinson also grabbed four rebounds and dished out two assists in the Heat's 89-74 victory over the Lakers.

Jaren Jackson Jr., Grizzlies

Jackson's performance on Day 1 is hard to top, but the fourth pick in this year's draft was solid on Tuesday night. In just over 27 minutes of action, the Grizzlies' rookie forward scored 10 points and grabbed eight rebounds and his team won 95-92. After shooting 2-for-4 from deep, Jackson is now 10-for-17 (58.8 percent) from 3-point range.

Jacob Evans, Warriors

The Warriors have high hopes for their most recent draft pick and he provided glimpses of why on Day 2. In a win over the Lakers, Evans finished with 13 points, five rebounds and two steals.

Svi Mykhailiuk, Lakers

Mykhailiuk struggled from behind the arc (2-for-8) in the Lakers' loss to the Heat but still managed to finish with 12 points, four rebounds and two assists.

Trae Young, Hawks

The Hawks' 20-year-old point guard is still looking to find his rhythm as he scored 12 points on 5-for-16 shooting in Atlanta's 22-point loss to San Antonio Tuesday night.

Marvin Bagley III and Harry Giles III, Kings

After an impressive showing on Day 1, the Kings struggled in a 71-54 loss to the Warriors. Bagley (3-for-16) and Giles (2-for-9) combined to score 11 points on 20 percent shooting from the field. As a team, Sacramento shot 27.5 percent from the field.

Day 1

Jaren Jackson Jr., Grizzlies

The 18-year-old impressed everyone in his Summer League debut, scoring 29 points in just over 23 minutes of action and shooting 60 percent from the field. A 39.6 percent 3-point shooter in his lone season at Michigan State, the 6-11 forward connected on eight of his 13 3-point attempts Monday night. The Grizzlies defeated the Hawks, 103-88.

Marvin Bagley III, Kings

In the Kings' 98-93 win over the Lakers, the No. 2 overall pick's offensive arsenal was on full display. Bagley scored in a variety of ways, finishing with an efficient 18 points (on 6-for-11 shooting) while grabbing six rebounds and blocking three shots.

Svi Mykhailiuk, Lakers

Los Angeles' second-round pick proved his value as a shooter: Mykhailiuk finished with 15 points and connected on half of his six 3-point attempts. As the Lakers roster takes shape, the 6-8 Kansas product could be relied on heavily.

Harry Giles III, Kings

Giles, the No. 20 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, looked comfortable in his first competition as a pro. The 6-11 forward played over 25 minutes, scoring 13 points on 6-for-10 shooting.

Moe Wagner, Lakers

In his first NBA tilt, Wagner was not hesitant to look for his shot. The 6-11 centre scored 23 points on 6-for-18 shooting from the field and 2-for-9 shooting from deep. Wagner also hit nine of 10 free throw attempts and grabbed seven rebounds.

Grayson Allen, Jazz

Like Wagner, Allen was not shy in his first Summer League game. Despite shooting 4-for-16 from the field, the Duke product filled the stat sheet with 11 points, seven assists and eight rebounds in the Jazz's 92-76 win over the Spurs.

Trae Young, Hawks

Young struggled throughout Atlanta's loss to the Grizzlies. The fifth overall pick was 4-for-20 from the field and 1-for-11 from deep. The 6-2 guard's ability to get to the free throw line allowed him to finish the night with 16 points despite subpar shooting.
