Nice blurb from Zach Harper's Bulls assessment: "They got a steal in the second round with Dosunmu, who could even supplant White at some point as the main backup."

I know it is hard to take anything away from summer league, but if Ayo commits to playing defense anywhere near the level he did this summer it will be very hard for them to keep him off the floor. Just keep working on that jumper.

That's a great opportunity for Giorgi. Does anyone know if this kind of exposure might raise his earning potential overseas?

Right now it’s increasing his earnings stateside, that’s for sure. Giorgi must be doing enough for the Nuggets to like him and keep him around into training camp. With his personality, I am not at all surprised.

Lot of discussion on Franz Wagner prior to draft, so when I saw his name on this morning’s ESPN scroll I though I’d see how he has been doing. I have to admit 8th pick seemed a bit high, but he’s had a fairly solid start — albeit with a bad team. After four games he is averaging 13.3 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 2 apg, 0.8 bpg, 1 spg, and only 1.0 turnovers per game in 33 mpg. I haven’t seen him play yet, so not sure how these stats look in the court, but not too shabby at all.

Ayo’s having a good game against the Celts. The Bulls aren’t playing great. I guess that’s why Ayo’s getting minutes.

There’s an Illini in the NBA thread in the Illinois Basketball forum. Lots of comments about Ayo. Ayo has helped spark a comeback from 19 down. He shot the 3 that put the Bulls ahead. I think he’s getting minutes because he‘s playing great defense with intensity and shooting 6/6…not because the Celtics are bad.
