Summer League Scouting Report On Andre Brown

GoldenStateOfMind’s scouting report on Andre Brown:

And while I’d like to see him, like Amundson, rise through the ranks and become a regular contributor on some NBA roster, I’d have to say at this point — from every aspect of his game — he is at best a Poor Man’s Louis Amundson. Just not quite as quick to ball, a jumpshot not quite as refined, and an ability to finish that’s not quite as powerful.

Reggie Williams Drawing Rave Reviews At Vegas Summer League

Reggie Williams is having a stellar opening three games in Las Vegas for the Warriors at the 2010 NBA Summer League, capped off by a 34-point performance last night in a heavily anticipated matchup — and sellout crowd — against the Washington Wizards, which marked the professional debut of #1 Draft pick John Wall.

As previously mentioned, it appears that the Warriors are using this summer’s squad primarily as a training ground for both Williams and Brandan Wright, who sat out last night’s game with a slight shoulder injury.

NBA D-League writer Matthew Brennan reports:

“I’m not here trying to get a job with any team, I’m already on a team,” said Williams. “It’s more that my job is to go out here, get better, and help my team and get ready for next season. I need to rebound better, get my teammates more involved, and I want to start shooting better. My coaches told me they didn’t want this week to be all about scoring, they wanted to see me do some other things too. I’m trying to do that, but it’s kind of tough when you are down sometimes and need to go back.”

Bay Area Summer Leaguers: Jeremy Lin Shines

Lots of news from former Bay Area high school and college talents, highlighted by former Palo Alto and Ivy League star Jeremy Lin.

Kevin Arvonitz spotlighted Lin in Day One of the Vegas Summer League roundup.

Harvard standout Jeremy Lin worked off the ball tirelessly for Dallas, running the baseline and cutting through the half court to free himself up. When he got opportunities with the ball, Lin displayed composure. His athleticism isn't freakish -- most of his drives to the hole are straight-line routes -- but his incursions into the paint were fearless. He finished with 12 points on 5-for-8 shooting. He also racked up five turnovers when the speed of the game escalated. Lin acknowledged that there's a chasm between Ivy League play and what transpires here in Las Vegas. "I think the style of the game, NBA rules, pick-and-rolls, the speed and athleticism are the biggest differences," Lin said. "I'm just trying to figure out when to attack, when to shoot, reading defensive coverages. It's a lot more complex than it was in college."

Updates on Omar Samahan as well as Jerome Randle, Rod Benson and Patrick Christopher. (Landry Fields has yet to play).

Reggie Williams Leads Warriors to 77-76 Summer League Victory

Golden State beat New Orleans to kick off the first game, and Williams put his fingerprints over all this one.

Williams showed his usual change-up quickness, getting nice looks at the rim and hitting some smoother jumpers. There were a few clankers and some bad decisions, but that’s life in summer league. With Morrow likely gone, the Warriors will need to see some assertiveness from Williams. It’s fine for him to play within the flow of the game and put up 22 points, but it would be nice to see him seize control of a game during the next week and explode for 30 plus. Despite the continued presence of Curry, Ellis and Lee, Williams is going to need to be a consistent scorer for this year’s team. There’s no better place to start building his confidence than the summer league.

More of concern though to Dubs fans? Brandan Wright, getting his first action in forever after multiple injuries. And it turned out alright.

The good news about Wright, fortunately, doesn’t end with his injury-free run on the summer league court. He’s used his time away from the team to fill out his frame. His shoulders are thicker and his lower body looks stronger. He’s not chiseled by any stretch, but he’s carrying enough weight that he might not get knocked down anytime he sets foot in the lane next year. He took repeated hits during Friday’s game, but popped back up after each — despite some collective breath-holding by the live and TV audiences.
