Paul Harris, Demetris Nichols, and Darryl Watkins got into their teams' first summer league games yesterday. The fact that each received some playing time is about the best thing you can say for them. Here are the less-than-impressive statlines:
HARRIS: 3 minutes, no points, no shot attempts, 1 rebound, 1 steal, 1 turnover, 2 fouls. (box score)
NICHOLS: 6 minutes, 3 points, 1-1 from the floor, 1-1 from the line, one turnover. (box score)
WATKINS: 8 minutes, no points, 0-1 from the floor, 2 rebounds, 2 assists (nice), one turnover, 3 fouls. (box score)
I am at this very moment watching the Summer Jazz play the Summer Magic on NBATV, hoping to get a glimpse of Harris or Nichols. So far I haven't seen either in action. I did miss the first quarter, so I suppose there is a chance that they played already. I suppose.
