Kyle Guy poured in 19 points (7-16 from the field, including 3-7 from 3) and had 3 assists, 2 steals, 2 turnovers and 1 block as Sacramento defeated Dallas, 105-101, on Monday (July 8) to move to 2-0 in 2019 NBA Las Vegas Summer League play. This was Guy’s first game since signing a two-way contract with the Kings, and he certainly delivered. As you will see in the highlights below, the former Virginia star showed off more than just his shooting against the Mavericks.

More from Monday’s play …

Devon Hall, Guard, Oklahoma City Thunder

Hall rebounded from a subpar outing in the Thunder’s opener with 10 points, 3 assists, 2 steals and 2 turnovers in 22 minutes in an 84-81 overtime win over Philadelphia. The former Cavalier standout’s outside shooting struggles continue, though, as he missed all eight 3-point attempts against Philadelphia and is now 0-11 from beyond the arc in two summer league games. Hall, a second-round draft pick of the Thunder in 2018, went 3-11 from the field and 4-4 from the line versus Philly. He is 3-15 from the field overall this summer league.

London Perrantes, Point Guard, New Orleans Pelicans

Perrantes did not see the court as New Orleans defeated the Bulls, 109-72, on Monday. This was first game for Pelicans first round draft picks Nickeil Alexander-Walker and Jaxson Hayes.

Perrantes averaged 5 points, 5 assists and 2.5 rebounds per game in the Pelicans first two contests. Like Hall, he has struggled with his shot, making only 2-11 overall and going 0-3 from beyond the arc.

Jerome had media availability on Monday, though, and you can see some of his comments in the video below.
