The Las Vegas Summer League showcased the first professional experience for many of this year's draft picks, giving us a glimpse at what they may look like on the big stage in the fall. It's key to keep in mind that Summer League is its own environment, so there's not a direct 1-to-1 correlation between being productive in Vegas and being productive in the NBA.
While there are many other factors besides pure Summer League production to consider when evaluating a player's fantasy basketball prospects, performance in Vegas does give some valuable insight.
By looking at not just what a player did, but also how he did it, and combining that with the fit, opportunity and likely rotations of the team that he'll be playing for in the fall, we can start to refine our estimates for what their fantasy prospects might be.
Whose performances in Vegas did the most to help their fantasy basketball prospects for 2021-22? And who might be ready to contribute right away to your points and/or roto teams? Let's discuss.
