NBA Summer League
Unfortunately, Ivan Rabb missed the whole thing with ankle problems. (Article seems pretty confident in his ability to make the team though) I also didn’t find much on Tyrone Wallace or Richard Solomon.
Jaylen Brown and/or Jabari Bird (Celtics)
- How does the great performances by Bird and Brown this past month shake up the Celtics roster?
- The Celtics traded shooting guard Avery Bradley and the Daily Cal thinks Brown could be the replacement.
- Mass Live’s takeaways from the Summer League. (Only mentions Brown)
- Jabari Bird’s surprising performance gives him a shot to make the team.
Jorge Gutierrez (Trailblazers)
- Though he has some NBA experience already, it was good to see Jorge shine in Vegas. Las Vegas Review Journal has a recap of one of his games.
- Here’s a video interview with Jorge after one of Portland’s wins, it includes several highlights including a behind the back pass for an assist. Er wait... my bad. He had TWO of those!
Bears in World Play
- Sam Singer and Maccabi USA men’s basketball takes gold at Maccabiah 2017!

It is the second year in a row she won a Bronze Medal (last year was in the Under-19 division). Mirkovic will play for both indoor and beach volleyball as a Cal Bear next season. Full 40 minute video of the match below.
- Golden Blogs has been pretty good at reporting these... but if you missed it, The Daily Cal has a rundown on 5 Golden Bears being added onto preseason Watch Lists.
- Add two more! Tre Watson and Devante Downs are on Watch Lists now too. I’m sure we will cover them soon.
- Bear Territory’s Countdown to Kickoff series looks at the Quarterbacks.
