The Los Angeles Lakers Summer League team got a couple scrimmages in before hopping on plane to Las Vegas on Thursday. In the practice footage above, Byron Scott placed D’Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson, Julius Randle, Anthony Brown, and Tarik Black on one team. The other squad consisted of Larry Nance Jr., Dwight Buycks, Will Davis II, Robert Upshaw and Tony Mitchell.
Clarkson managed to throw down an impressive dunk while Nance, Jr. shows his ability to make quick and smart basketball decisions. Randle shows his strength and Black is a force on defense.
The Lakers tip-off at 5:30 PM PST against the Minnesota Timberwolves in Las Vegas on Friday night for the first Summer League game, with the storyline centered around Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell.[divide]
