How to Watch
The complete game and broadcast for schedule is here.
The GSW games are (all times Pacific):
Sat. 7/2/22 Sacramento v Golden State, 4:30 PM - 7:30 PM ESPN2
Players To Watch
James Wiseman. NOT AT CA CLASSIC. GSW has been very vague about Wiseman’s availability, probably because reality is vague. But he is supposed to play some time during Las Vegas Summer League.
Jonathan Kuminga. PLAYING FOR CONGO NATIONAL TEAM, NOT AT CA CLASSIC. Will he dominate SL, or will he float through SL like he floated through G-League? A couple of crushing games and he might be released from SL duty.
Anthony Slater wrote: Jonathan Kuminga also is expected to appear at some point in summer league, but he just traveled to Congo and the Warriors can’t determine when exactly he will debut until they get him back in the facility and create the preferred summer plan.
UPDATE: the buzz in the comments and on Twitter is that JK has visa issues preventing him from playing. I can’t find an official announcement anywhere.
Moses Moody. Last year, he showed off a steady presence in SL that was promising but not assertive.
Patrick Baldwin Jr. NOT AT SUMMER LEAGUE UNTIL CLEARED. 2022 #28 pick. He’s trying to rehab a bad ankle which messed up his senior year, his only year of college and his draft stock. I think he should skip SL. If your foot injury was enough to prevent 100% draft workouts and also screwed up your year in college, you should just get it back to 100% so we can see what we got. Myers left the possibility open if Rick Celebrini approved.
Ryan Rollins. 2022 #44 pick. INJURED, WILL NOT BE AT SUMMER LEAGUE. I hoped to see him in SL with a chip on his shoulder trying to prove he can get to the rim and get off jumpers against SL athleticism. Instead, he will be rehabbing his foot.
Gui Santos. 2022 #55 pick. He’s under contract in Brazil for multiple years, so he will be a draft-and-stash. But there is a remote chance he will come to Summer League, to try to blow people away to get a two-way.
Justinian Jessup. 2020 #51 pick. The legendary late second rounder from last year who has been developing in the Australian NBL. In 2020-21, true diehards dreamed about him coming to save the day whenever a Warrior bricked an open three.
Other young players. Given the GSW roster situation, I doubt anybody can make the NBA roster, but impressive play could get someone on to the Santa Cruz Warriors.
Official Team Roster
Keegan Murray. The #4 draft pick. Supposedly an efficient ultra-role-player, so he may not look too good as a connector for Summer League randoms.
Jaden Hardy. #37 draft pick. We looked at him in our Draft Tournament and he was a bucket getter with some efficiency problems. I’m betting he will be fun to watch in a loose SL environment.
