07/04/2016 08:01 PM

The Orlando Pro Summer League is well underway and former Wildcats are continuing to impress. Here’s an update of the Wildcats participating in Orlando:

  • Marquis Teague scored 13 points, grabbed three rebounds and dished out five assists in the Mavericks 85-92 loss against the Orlando Magic white team earlier today. Teague is averaging 13 points so far in the summer league.
  • Aaron Harrison had an impressive showing tonight, scoring 19 points and dishing out four assists against Dakari Johnson and the Oklahoma City Thunder. Harrison is averaging 15.3 points through three games, and will look to continue his strong play over the next few days, as he is fighting for a permanent spot on Charlotte’s roster.
  • Dakari Johnson has impressed so far in the summer league and he didn’t stop today. The big man scored 12 points and grabbed six rebounds against Aaron Harrison and the Charlotte Hornets. That puts Johnson at 13.5 points and 10.5 rebounds per game through three games in the Orlando Summer League.
  • Alex Poythress played in his second career NBA Summer League game today, again scoring four points. Poythress scored four points and added two rebounds on Saturday. He is the only Wildcat playing in the Orlando Summer League tomorrow. You can catch him on NBA TV at 1:00 as the Orlando Blue take on the Miami Heat.

Trey Lyles and James Young are beginning their play in the Utah Summer League tonight. All action can be found on NBA TV. You can also follow the Orlando and Utah Summer League action at
