Grizzlies bring Summer League Championship back to Bluff City

Grizzlies bring Summer League Championship back to Bluff City

Grayson Allen is a 2015 National Champion and now a 2019 NBA Las Vegas Summer League Champion, not that both of those championships hold the same weight, but the Grizzlies took home the title after beating the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night. He was 8-for-14 shooting, making five three-pointers.

Memphis Grizzlies head coach Taylor Jenkins has yet to lead an official National Basketball Association game, but he's bringing some hardware home to Beale Street.

Note: Former Washington star Matisse Thybulle also had an impressive Summer League, averaging 11.6 points, 2 steals and 1.2 blocks per game in his debut for the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Wolves shot 32.4% from 3-point range and Creek led the way, making three 3s and going 4-for-6 from the field.

Are there players who could get a shot in the fall, or perhaps even fill the Wolves' second two-way contract slot? Minnesota cut Memphis' lead to one point six times.

Former Bills right tackle Jordan Mills is a 65 overall with the Miami Dolphins and slated to be their best RT in game. Electronic Arts kicked off revealing the Madden 20 player ratings when it announced all the highest-rated rookies .

The wing has shown plenty of flashes in his first three seasons with Boston, but his fourth year should provide him with the best opportunity to shine.

Nickeil Alexander-Walker, a Toronto native and cousin to Oklahoma City Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, earned All Summer League First Team honours.

Big man Naz Reid was unstoppable in the second semi-final, scoring 20 points in 19 minutes to lead the Timberwolves into the championship game.

The three All-Rookie teams featured eight first-round selections, five second-round picks and two players that went undrafted, including Chris Clemons and Terence Davis.
