I mean this lockout could not have come at a worst time for us!
We desperatley need to see what we have with out young/cheap players to know what to make of our roster.
I mean I would love to see what a year in the Euro's produced for Jerome Jordan
Of course we all want to see if IR's defense is all that we are told it is and if his great shooting display in the workout was a fluke or has his shot developed since G Tech's season ended.
What about Andy Rautins? We could see if a year on the bench helped him learn the NBA game any, if not waive him to free up a spot.
Summer League can be, and a lot of the times is very misleading in terms of player performance (who can forget Greg Ostretag dominating Tim Duncan and Nate Robinson being the All Time Greatest player in Summer League History!) with it not really giving an honest depiction of the player's talent level.
But what Summer League does do is give players a taste of NBA speed and a higher level of comp. to play against, even though 75% of the leauge will never be pro's they are still bigger,quicker and stronger than players at the college level.
Stat,Melo,Billups,Douglas and Feilds are the only players on our whole roster that are for sure going to be playing next year thus leavin a lot of questions for us to have answered.
