Duke in the NBA: Wendell Carter Jr. Dominates in Bulls Defeat

The Las Vegas Summer League is winding down, but Wendell Carter Jr. was going to prove even more that he is a dominant force on the inside.

Good News, Bad News Out Of Sacramento

Good News, Bad News Out Of Sacramento

Good: Giles. Bad: Bagley We’ve been hearing for some time that Harry Giles has been healthy and thriving even though Sacramento shut him down last season for rehab. Here’s the first evidence of that: a solid tomahawk dunk by Giles against the Clippers in summer league play. That’s great for Giles. For Marvin Bagley though, things are not as good right now: after his injury against the Suns over the weekend, he’s out for the rest of the summer. Fortunately it’s not too serious: Bagley has a bruised pelvic bone. He can start training again in a couple of weeks. If you're going...

Deandre Ayton posts first NBA double-double in Suns’ win vs. Kings

A classic Ayton performance Deandre Ayton said he felt like a rookie in his Summer League debut, but he looked more like himself in his second outing in Las Vegas. The big man had 21 points and 12 rebounds (including five offensive rebounds) in 29 minutes as the Phoenix Suns held off Marvin Bagley III and the Sacramento Kings, 71-63. Ayton was incredibly efficient, shooting 8-of-11 from the field and a perfect 5-of-5 from the charity stripe. He had a block and a steal, too. Bagley had 15 points and seven rebounds on 5-of-12 shooting. Here were Ayton’s highlights: This performance came a...

Former high school teammates both made it to the top. This Saturday in NBA summer league play, the #1 and #2 picks in June’s draft, former high school teammates DeAndre Ayton and Marvin Bagley, will square off for the first time as pros.

Harry Giles, Marvin Bagley Get First Taste Of NBA Competition

Duke players are up and down the West Coast now: Quinn Cook just won a ring with Golden State. Seth Curry and Gary Trent are in Portland. Brandon Ingram is a Laker. And Sacramento has Harry Giles and Marvin Bagley. In their summer league debut - Giles sat out last season to get fully healthy after several knee operations - both guys did well. Bagley had 18 points and six rebounds while Giles finished with 13 points and three boards. More importantly perhaps, he clearly wants to give his team a backbone it has lacked recently. He got into it with Lakers rookie Moe Wagner and didn’t...

First Endorsements, Rookie Contract Signed, Marvin Bagley Is Rich

The former Blue Devil is now a wealthy young man. Marvin Bagley has been wealthy for a week or two now since signing his Puma deal but added more to the bottom line when he signed his rookie contract over the weekend. If he’s smart with his money he should be set for life. One NBA player several years ago said he put half of everything he earned away before thinking about anything else. Smart guy. It’s easy to blow money and hard to stop, as Johnny Depp is learning about now. Things have been moving fast for young Bagley. Now his job is to slow down. He’s off to the NBA. He’s off...

Bagley & Giles - A Scary NBA Combination?

Could be One of the most exciting things about Marvin Bagley being picked by the Sacramento Kings in the recent NBA draft is the speed that team will possess. Point guard De’Aaron Fox is ready to run as soon as he gets his socks on. Willie Caulie-Stein has gotten criticism but he’s 7-0 and undeniably athletic, as he proved when he took on Notre Dame’s Jerian Grant and ran with him from end to end to block a shot and preserve Kentucky’s season. For Duke fans though nothing may be more fun than watching Bagley team up with his Duke predecessor Harry Giles because both guys are...
