We remind you again that Summer League basketball mirrors the quality of the NBA game about as accurately as those mirrors one finds in a funhouse.

With that said, talent is talent and it can be spotted even when the game is as ragged and at times unwatchable as what goes down over these two weeks in Vegas.

A handful of players have wowed and served notice that their futures in the league could be quite impressive.

Everyone knew Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker and Giannis Antetokounmpo were massive talents and each has had their moments, but others also have stood out, including a few that have some question marks.

Few had seen Utah’s Dante Exum play much, since he had such a quick ascent to stardom and was playing in Australia. Up close, he has been a sight to see, with elite speed, ball-handling ability and court vision. He has great size and can play either guard position.
