    Who knew Will Barton had that in him. It may not have quite been a full 360 dunk, but still impressive by Will Barton. It was midway through the second quarter when he got the breakaway dunk — he didn’t leak out so much as every Jazz player was within six feet of the baseline…

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Marcus  Camby

    UPDATE 8:12 pm: The Trail Blazers are now saying this is not a quadracept injury, not a hip flexor. We’ll assume that is true, but I’m not sure it changes much. LaMarcus Aldridge will be out for a little while but the Trail Blazers need to let this rest because they don’t want this to…

    LAS VEGAS – The overall quality of play in Saturday’s Summer League game between the Suns and the Blazers was among the best we’ve seen over the event’s first couple of days, and a quick look of the rosters makes it easy to understand why.

    LAS VEGAS — To put it nicely, Wes Johnson was a bit underwhelming last season for the Minnesota Timberwolves. That wasn’t the case on Saturday night inside Cox Pavilion, however, as the former fourth overall pick put together quite the performance against the NBA D-League Select team in lovely Las Vegas.

  17. Blue chipper Will Barton may not be eligible to go to Memphis, but Europe, D-League beckon

    Aug 5, 2010, 12:39 PM EDT

    Latavious Williams isn’t the best player to ever waltz through the D-League, but could be among the most influential. After being declared academically ineligible to play for Memphis prior to last season, Williams opted to still pursue a domestic route to the NBA.
