Storylines to watch

Will Troy Brown shake off the first game jitters? Brown had an inconsistent Friday against the Cavaliers. He did score 13 points, but taking 14 shots to get there leaves a lot of room to be desired.

Will Issuf Sanon play ... even in garbage time? He was a DNP-CD in Friday’s contest. NBA Draft picks generally play heavy minutes in Summer League, even if they aren’t expected to do much otherwise. Perhaps he will do so in subsequent games.

Can the Wizards slow down Derrick White? - White was San Antonio’s first round pick in 2017 and looks to be in position to play significant minutes this fall with Tony Parker reportedly signing with the Charlotte Hornets in Free Agency. Last season, White played mostly for the Austin Toros in the G-League, where they won the League Championship.

The Spurs already played in the Utah Summer League earlier this month where he averaged 23 points per game, so San Antonio comes into this game with more chemistry than the Wizards, who are already more inexperienced than your average Summer League squad. Though the Spurs lost their first Vegas Summer League game today to the Pacers, 86-76, again, the Spurs have more talent on their roster than the Wizards do.
