Imo:

Terrence Ross: C+

He didn't really have an amazing summer league. Ross had some consistency problems with his jump shots, especially from downtown. A lot of his jump shots were short, so maybe he is adjusting to NBA range. Another problem with Ross is his defensive habits. On several plays, he jumped out to the three point line to close out the jumper. If he does this in the NBA, it's going to lead to free throws and easy drives.

On the positive side, he is more explosive than I thought. He had some nice dunks throughout the games. It also looks like he will be one of the faster guys in the league.

Ed Davis: B

Davis didn't dominate, but I think he showed some progress. Physically, he looked bigger. Also, you can see improvement in his shooting technique. The jumper still isn't very pretty, but it is much better from last season. From a rebounding perspective, he still gives the same amount of effort as expected.

On the negative side, Davis still needs to work on his post game. A lot of times, he seemed to fling the ball towards the rim for bricks. Luckily, he was bailed out by poor defenders who fouled him.

Quincy Acy: D

I was very disappointed by Acy. I know he is a second-rounder, and not much should be expected from him. But the problem I have is that Acy is labelled as a player that has a high motor. As mentioned in the draft, he was compared to Reggie Evans.

However, if you look at Acy, you don't see a fraction of the effort that you see from Evans. He looked very laid back, and took a lot of jump shots instead of looking to dunk it.

Some people might say that it is just summer league, and players don't give it their all. But for a player that supposedly has a reputation as a competitor, that should not be an excuse. Look at Reggie Evans. He was a pogo stick in our pre-season games (if you guys recall, his effort in the pre-season led to a serious injury in his first season with us).
Toronto Raptors: A+

It's summer league so fuck it

Hey say what you want about Antoine Wright but I'd gladly welcome him back as a 3rd string SF.

Word. He was one of the few players who actually cared on the roster that year.
