Let’s jump into the top performers for Day 3 (Sunday July 7th)



These are our rankings based on statistics, impact to the game, and our overall impression of the player. We obviously care most about how they look from a hobby perspective…so we are looking for players we believe are impactful enough to influence their hobby prices.

#5: BRANDON CLARKE | Memphis Grizzlies

Opponent: Los Angeles Clippers

Stat Line: 17 Points, 4 Reb, 1 Asst, 0 Turnover

Years Pro: ROOKIE

Quick Reaction: This was my first time seeing him play in the Summer League, but I watched him a lot during his time at Gonzaga. When this guy starts to assert himself he is going to be a VERY IMPRESSIVE prospect! 

Top Rookie Cards to own:





#4: IGNAS BRAZDEIKIS | New York Knicks

Opponent: Phoenix Suns

Stat Line: 30 Points, 8 Reb, 2 Assist, 5 Turnover  || 11/19 FG + 3/6 3P

Years Pro: ROOKIE

Quick Reaction: Well, okay now. The former Michigan Wolverine had himself a game. He’s an aggressive player that apparently wants to make an NBA ROSTER. The Knicks fans might just fall in love with this guy.

#3: NAS MITROU-LONG | Cleveland Cavalies

Opponent: Chicago Bulls

Stat Line: 21 Points, 5 Reb, 8 Assist, 4 Turnover
