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.
Kyle Guy continues his 🔥 shooting with a 19-point performance.

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.

Phoenix has directed former Virginia point guard Ty Jerome and former North Carolina sharpshooter Cam Johnson, who were the Suns’ first round draft picks in the 2019 NBA Draft, to sit out the 2019 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas in order to focus on strength and conditioning and training with the team. Jerome had media availability on Monday, though, and you can see some of his comments in the video below.
"We worked out together for about a month and became really close. I had no idea I was going to Phoenix & he didn't either. When I did, he reached out right away & he's actually the first person I responded to on draft night." – @tyjerome_ on his relationship with @mikal_bridges pic.twitter.com/iSK2OjN2On

Suns GM James Jones gives some insight as to why the Suns wanted the former Hoo.
“He’s the best playmaker and lead ball handler in the draft. He comes from a good culture and program.” – James Jones on Ty Jerome pic.twitter.com/QtLRo4lpIP
