With the NBA Draft behind us, and Summer League action in full swing, many former Pokes are giving it their best shot on the hardwood. Former Cowboys like Jeffrey Carroll, Mike Cobbins, Jawun Evans, and Markel Brown have all seen action thus far. Let’s take a look at how all of they fared in their first games of the summer.
Jeffrey Carroll, Los Angeles Lakers:
In the Lakers’ 98-93 loss against the Sacramento Kings on Monday, Carroll played 14 minutes in which he scored two points and pulled down two boards.
In the Lakers’ 89-74 loss to the Miami Heat, Carroll played an effective 18 minutes, going 75 percent from the field. He finished with nine points and two boards.
In the third game, a 77-71 loss to Golden State, Carroll had his best game. He played 23 minutes and had his first double-digit scoring game with 11 points (2-5 from 3), pulled down four boards, and dished out two assists.
Carroll trying to make an impression:
Carroll being very aggressive when he gets the ball in this one. You have to make an impression in summer league, especially as an undrafted player, and he played with that mentality today. #okstate pic.twitter.com/QWnHzHnwj0— Dustin Ragusa (@DustRagu) July 6, 2018
Markel Brown, Houston Rockets:
Brown had an early 8 points in the Rockets’ 92-89 win against the Indiana Pacers on Friday.
Brown shot 50 percent from the field, and poured in a couple of threes from long range. Not a bad start at all for the former Cowboy high-flyer.
Jawun Evans, Los Angeles Clippers:
In the Clippers’ 77-71 loss the the Warriors, Evans made the most of his 12 minutes of game time, scoring 12 points. He went a perfect 2 for 2 from the free-throw line and pulled down a couple of boards as well.
Casey Hill of the Clippers on Jawun:
Casey Hill on Sindarius Thornwell and Jawun Evans: “They both play so damn hard and I think both of them are trying to prove that they’ve grown from their experiences in the NBA this year and to show what they can do out here (Summer League).” #LAClippers— LASportsAccess (@LASportsAccess) July 7, 2018
