There’s some very exciting news going on for the Golden State Warriors right now, so it’s understandable if you haven’t had the time to pay attention to the games they’re playing. Signing DeMarcus Cousins is a bit more noteworthy than playing a Summer League game.
But there are Summer League games to be played nonetheless, and that means there’s Warriors basketball to watch. And tonight they take on their neighbors.
What: Summer League California Classic, Golden State Warriors vs Sacramento Kings
When: 8:00 p.m. PT
Where: Golden 1 Center, Sacramento, California
TV: NBA TV
A look at the top prospects
Golden State will get their first look at the second-overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, Marvin Bagley III. Bagley, a hyper-athletic big from Duke, had a strong showing in his Monday debut, scoring 18 points, grabbing six rebounds, and blocking three shots.
In addition to Bagley, the Warriors will see De’Aaron Fox, last year’s fifth-overall selection. Also exciting is rookie Harry Giles, whom the Kings chose with the 20th-pick last year, but who missed the whole season with an injury. Giles was likely to be a high lottery pick before suffering a knee injury.
The rookie is here!
Speaking of draft picks, the Warriors had one this year, and we’ll see his debut tonight. Jacob Evans III, the 28th pick in the draft, will play tonight after missing yesterday’s game with a toe injury.
Jacob Evans will make his summer league debut tonight in Sacramento. Sets up fun matchup between Warriors and Kings. Evans, Jordan Bell and Damian Jones vs De’Aaron Fox, Marvin Bagley and Harry Giles.— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) July 3, 2018
