I am confused on the Summer League schedule...it was originally announced there’d be 4 games and then playoffs. But I also saw there’s no playoffs, just a ‘title game’ with the two best teams. But then I saw the SummerBulls do have a game scheduled for tonight, 9pm central against the Hornets. So I think that is the ‘playoff game’ even though there’s no actual bracket to continue. I think?
It doesn’t matter all too much. The team will be without by-far-most-important-player Patrick Williams as he was announced to have left the team in Vegas prior to the team’s 4th game on Sunday night.
With all the necessary "it's only Summer League" disclaimers attached, Williams' stats in 3 games:— Rob Schaefer (@rob_schaef) August 16, 2021
21 ppg, 9.7 rpg, 2.7 apg (4.7 tov) | 37.9% FG, 43.8% 3P (5.3 a/g), 80% FT (5 a/g)
He averaged 34.3 minutes and 19.3 shot attempts per game https://t.co/MeuhSaZRNd
That still leaves some important pieces. In that Sunday game, the SummerBulls lost but both former second round picks produced enough to allow for an embeddable highlight video.

So consider this your SummerBulls talk until we do a more full-on wrap later this week.
