Most intriguing prospects to watch in the 2015 NBA Summer League
NBA free agency isn't the only action going on around the league. With the annual Summer League slate set to tip off on July 4, SI.com breaks down some of the most intriguing prospects to keep an eye on in Orlando, Utah and Las Vegas.
Orlando Summer League (July 4-10)
Royce White, Clippers: Three years after the Rockets selected White No. 16 overall in the 2012 NBA draft, White’s comeback attempt has now arrived in Los Angeles. White’s infamous anxiety issues, triggered by air travel, derailed his career from the start. A very talented Iowa State product, White’s mental health has prevented him from sticking in the league. He last played in the NBA when he made his professional debut on a 10-day contract with the Kings in 2013-14. The Clippers certainly foster a better environment for White if he can catch on.
Utah Summer League (July 6-9)
Pierre Jackson, 76ers: One year ago, Jackson tore his Achilles just minutes into his Orlando Summer League stint with the Sixers. After an extensive rehab process, he’s back with Philly—a team with just two point guards currently on the roster. A prolific scorer, Jackson can make the 76ers’ roster by proving his competence in pick-and-roll situations and showing his ability to run a team.
Las Vegas Summer League (July 10-20)
