NBA Summer League: Who holds the record for the highest single-game scoring performance?

The NBA Summer League is more than just seeing the recently drafted rookies putting on NBA uniforms and taking the court against the fellow members of their Draft class.

It also gives an opportunity to undrafted players or unsigned free agents to showcase their game and make a case for themselves to be on an NBA roster.

Over the years, plenty of players have made their names at the Summer League. Here's a look at the players with the highest-scoring games in NBA Summer League history.

47 - Anthony Morrow (Golden State Warriors, 2009)

While the Warriors roster included their top-10 Draft pick Stephen Curry and teammate Anthony Randolph led the Summer League that year in scoring, it was Anthony Morrow, who finished with the most points ever in a single Summer League game.

In what was his second Summer League trip, he went off for a record 47 points in a game against the New Orleans Hornets.

Morrow was an undrafted guard in 2008 out of Georgia Tech, who was signed-up by the Golden State franchise. He last played in the NBA in 2017 with the Chicago Bulls, one of seven teams he played for during his nine-year NBA stint.

42 - Tied, three players

Anthony Randolph (Golden State Warriors, 2009)

Anthony Randolph led the scoring in the 2009 Summer League, averaging 26.8 points. Drafted 14th overall in the 2008 Draft by the Warriors, this was Randolph's second Summer League appearance.

Randolph would go on to play six years in the NBA, representing four teams in the Minnesota Timberwolves, New York Knicks and Denver Nuggets.

Von Wafer (Denver Nuggets, 2007)

Marcus Banks (Phoenix Suns, 2007)

40 - Furkan Korkmaz (Philadelphia 76ers, 2018)

The most recent and only the fifth player ever to score 40 or more in a Summer League is Turkish national Furkan Korkmaz. As part of his 40-point showing, he knocked down eight 3-pointers.

He was selected 26th overall by the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2016 NBA Draft and since, he has represented the franchise. In the offseason of 2021, he has agreed to remain with the franchise for another three years.
