The game will mark the debut of Warriors second round draft pick Jordan Bell, who is expected to sign a two year contract with the team today.
The Warriors’ roster
Bell will be joined on the Warriors summer league roster by two other Oregon products: Elgin Cook and Dylan Ennis, who also played for the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Orlando Pro Summer League. Cook is one of three Santa Cruz Warriors on the roster and is joined by Jabari Brown and Alex Hamilton.
Chris Boucher, who the Warriors picked up shortly after the draft and signed to a new two-way contact, will not be playing during summer league
Outside of the newcomers, the Warriors summer league roster will feature a few familiar faces from this year’s championship roster: Damian Jones, Kevon Looney, and
future perennial MVP Patrick McCaw. In additional reunion news, Looney will be reunited with former UCLA teammate Bryce Alford.
Not surprisingly, Chris Boucher — who tore his ACL in March — won't be playing in Summer League, DeMarco said.— Connor Letourneau (@Con_Chron) July 8, 2017
The Sixers roster
Since most of the Sixers’ young talent on last year’s roster actually played as part of The Process, their only big name will be top draft pick Markelle Fultz, who is already making an impression in summer league. Tonight, he’s reportedly focusing on improwing defensively.

Fultz will focus on his defense tonight. He said on offense, "I want to make sure ... I stay aggressive and get my teammates the ball."— Jessica Camerato (@JCameratoCSN) July 8, 2017
Fultz is averaging 40 points per 48 minutes so far, shooting 46.9% from the field and 46.2% from three.— Derek Bodner (@DerekBodnerNBA) July 6, 2017
Pay attention, folks: this could be the future you witness tonight.
