VIDEO: D’Angelo Russell Highlights From NBA Summer League

The Los Angeles Lakers headed into the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas earlier this month with high hopes for rookie point guard D’Angelo Russell to prove his worth after the team selected him with the second overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.

Unfortunately, Russell’s overall performance was disappointing. The Ohio State product didn’t play consistently well over the course of the five games played at the Thomas & Mack Center, but did finish strong with a 21-point outing against the Utah Jazz.

In five games during Summer League, Russell averaged 11.8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game. Russell shot 37.7 percent from the floor and a dismal 11.8 percent from beyond the arc.

Although a disappointment overall, Russell did have some impressive highlights displaying his remarkable passing ability and knack for scoring. The rookie point guard will have a few months to work on his game before getting back on the floor for the Lakers in October for the NBA preseason.
