Still pretty slow on the news front as the Las Vegas Summer League came to a close yesterday, but the Wizards did make some news by placing one of its own on the All-Summer League Team. Links:

  • The consensus seemed to be that top Wizards draft pick Bradley Beal had a good, but not great, summer league, which was evidently enough to earn him a spot on the 13-member 2012 NBA All-Summer League Team. [Us | Wizards Insider]
  • Yesterday we raised the specter of Andray Blatche landing with the Heat. I failed to mention how convenient that would be for Dray, who already seems to spend every free moment he has in South Beach. [Washington Examiner]
  • If you missed any of the Wizards summer league games, the team's website has compiled highlights and recaps of each contest here. [Wizards.com]
  • Juwan Howard is staying in shape, "just in case" he wants to return for a 19th pro season. Yep. [AP]
  • You'll never guess who is getting chants of "M-V-P" in Vegas. [NBA.com]
  • Some more Summer League awards dished out by ESPN's Zach Harper. [Daily Dime]
  • In its fourth exhibition game, Team USA got out to a big early lead against Argentina but had to fight to hold on for an 86-80 victory, which didn't do much to support Kobe Bryant's claims that the 2012 Americans could equal the 1992 Dream Team on the court. [AP]
  • Kevin Durant is laying waste to the international competition. But you won't hear him talk about it much postgame. [ESPN]
