Sam Presti has added four new rookies to the roster, all of whom have enticing potential. It's now up to these players to perform in the first Summer League of the season.

Summer League will also provide an excellent opportunity to observe how last year's rookies have progressed. Vit Krejci and Lindy Waters III both had outstanding seasons.

Krejci was a solid point forward who brought others into the game, but his shooting was a weakness.

Vit only shot 32.7 percent from deep last year, and I'm curious to see if he's improved his shot form.

Oklahoma City has one of the strongest Summer League rosters. Except for Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Luguentz Dort, the Thunder have sent their entire team.

JRE, Aaron Wiggins, and Tre Mann will all see action. Last season, all three were valuable contributors for OKC.

The most intriguing storyline to emerge from tonight's game is Chet Holmgren's debut. Much has been written about Holmgren's ability to play in the NBA.

Utah has two traditional, bruising centres on their roster in Kofi Cockburn and Tacko Fall, who should challenge Holmgren's thin frame.
