It was a pretty active day for former Cards in the NBA Summer League on Wednesday. Gorgui Dieng had the best overall game, while Luke Hancock and Kyle Kuric also saw action in their games. Here is how all three did…
*Gorgui Dieng – The big man absolutely dominated the glass, grabbing 19 rebounds to go along with his 13 points as the Timberwolves beat the Suns 86-77. He added 1 assist and 2 steals while shooting 6-13 from the field and 1-2 from the free throw line. He started and played nearly 35 minutes. In 4 games this summer, Gorgui is averaging 10.5 points and 10 rebounds per game. With the win, the Timberwolves advanced in the summer league championship bracket and will face the Sacramento Kings on Thursday at 4:30 p.m. ET.
*Luke Hancock – After a frustrating stint with the Orlando Magic that didn’t see Luke with much playing time, he has gotten more of an opportunity with the Houston Rockets. On Wednesday he had probably his best game of the summer as he scored 8 points and grabbed 3 rebounds in just over 11 minutes. He also had 2 steals and 1 assist. He shot 3-6 from the field, including 1-3 from 3-point and was 1-2 from the free throw line. The Rockets beat the Raptors 93-77 after trailing by 29 points. They also advance in the championship bracket. They will take on the Cavaliers on Thursday at 8:00 p.m. ET.
