Is the future now?
Is the future now?

I know everybody's counting down the days until the end of October. But if you're "in the know", you're aware that basketball isn't that far away. Why? Because tomorrow is the start of the SUMMER LEAGUE! Woooo!

Okay, so maybe there's not too much fanfare surrounding a bunch of developing players getting together in Orlando so that they can play in a practice facility. But it is the ultimate gift for hard core NBA fans. The draftees that you used to have to wait a whole summer to see now take the court a mere 1.5 weeks after they were selected. It's never a total indication as to whether a player will succeed, but it definitely gives you a good idea of what they're capable of, and how they'll fit in.

However, even the craziest basketball scholar won't recognize all of the names on this year's Thunder roster. So here's a handy guide to help you out. Below you'll find a breakdown of the Thunder's 14 Summer League players, from the future stars to the future joes.

The Roster Guys:

Reggie Jackson

No. Name Pos. Ht. Wt. DOB From Pro Yrs.
15 Reggie Jackson PG 6-3 208 04/16/90 Boston College 2

Last Team: The Oklahoma City Thunder
Key Stats: 13.9 PPG, 47.9% FG, 30.2% 3PT, 4.9 RPG, 3.6 APG in 33.5 Minutes (Playoffs)
2012 Summer League Stats: 15.3 PPG, 41.2% FG, 3.3 RPG, 3.5 APG in 26.5 Minutes

This is a man that needs no introduction. After languishing on the bench and being sat down in favor of Derek Fisher in 2011, he was finally given the chance to prove himself last year. An epic battle with Eric Maynor ensued. Maynor posted several consecutive uninspiring games, while Reggie Jackson eased himself into the rotation. Eventually, Jackson was given the job over Maynor, resulting in the latter man being shifted to Portland for peanuts. Jackson would eventually assert his abilities in a later matchup with Portland, posting superior numbers and dishing out one really sick assist.

But Jackson's legend was far from over. With Russell Westbrook falling victim to injury during the first round of the NBA playoffs, Reggie Jackson was asked to assume the starting role. He was underwhelming at first, bricking threes and sparely handling the ball. But he eventually evened out into a decent scorer, posting semi-efficient numbers and showing flashes of a future point guard.

That being said, Reggie Jackson definitely still has room to grow. If he could perfect his teardrop layup that we see glimpses of now and again, it would really round out his offensive game and turn him into a guy who could create his own shot. Once he becomes more of a threat, the defense will respect him, and it lets him play as a point guard more naturally. He does need to improve his court vision though, as his assists weren't consistently high and he could throw some bad passes. Lastly, I'd love to see him improve on his corner three. His percentage was low during the regular season, and many teams refused to guard him from that distance. If he could get his shot to around 35%, it would go a long way.

Overall, I expect Reggie to get heavy minutes and provide us with some highlight reel plays. He might sit out a game though, because the greater purpose of his presence here isn't really to improve his own game. He could smoke most of the competition, and he knows it. The real purpose is to give the younger guys minutes with a regular rotation player, so they know what level they need to play at and can see how they stack up.

Jeremy Lamb

No. Name Pos. Ht. Wt. DOB From Pro Yrs.
11 Jeremy Lamb SG 6-5 180 05-30-92 Connecticut 1

Last Team: The Oklahoma City Thunder
Key Stats: 21.0 PPG, 49% FG, 35% 3PT, 5.3 RPG, 3.0 APG, 1.2 SPG (D-League, 66ers)
2012 Summer League Stats: 20.0 PPG, 46.7% FG, 29.6% 3PT, 4.4 RPG, 0.8 APG, 1 SPG in 29 Minutes (With Rockets)

For Jeremy Lamb, last season might as well haven't existed. He was forever buried on the bench, only getting minutes if the Thunder were absolutely destroying their opponent. When he did get minutes, nearly half of his attempts were threes, and the atmosphere was very lackadaisical. Thus, you've really got to go to the D-League if you want to see how he's progressed.

While playing for Tulsa last year, Jeremy Lamb basically blew the roof off the SpiritBank Events Center. With Lamb, the 66ers were 13-7. Without him, they were 14-16. That should speak for itself. But specifically, he was ridiculously efficient offensively, effectively operating as the team's primary scorer. His long arms give him the ability to shoot over most guys who would defend him at shooting guard, and his quickness and athleticism allow him to drive it to the rack when the opportunity allows. Most promising is Lamb's ridiculous range. He can consistently hit threes from about 5 feet behind the line, something that's rarely done if your name isn't J.R. Smith, Kobe Bryant, or Kevin Durant.

However, Lamb does have some work to do during this year's Summer League. He's too confident in his length and scoring ability, so he'll struggle against more athletic defenders. His ballhandling isn't the best, so he can't penetrate too well. Obviously, he's still working on his court vision, but it's at least at a Kevin Martin level. Defensively, he'll need to learn to be more consistent, rather than guarding in spurts. All of these are really fixable problems, and something that he'll get a good chance to work on with the higher talent level in the Summer League.

Speaking of his repertoire with other players, he'll definitely see some work with Reggie Jackson this summer. Unless the Thunder sign a shooting guard over the next few weeks, he'll likely be the Thunder's primary backup swingman. As such, a lot of the scoring load will be on him, and he'll need to develop a repertoire with Reggie Jackson. As we all know, there's no time like the present.

Perry Jones III

No. Name Pos. Ht. Wt. DOB From Pro Yrs.
3 Perry Jones III PF 6-11 235 09/24/91 Baylor 1

Last Team: The Oklahoma City Thunder
Key Stats: 14.3 PPG, 45.1% FG, 29.4% 3PT, 7.3 RPG, 1.7 APG, 1.2 SPG in 32 Minutes (D-League, 66ers)
2012 Summer League Stats: 12.0 PPG, 43.5% FG, 6 RPG, 1.5 BPG in 26 Minutes

Perry Jones' first year on the Thunder was much like Jeremy Lamb's: Hella inconclusive. After a swell Pre-Season, Coach Brooks prematurely promised that Jones would grab all of the minutes that existed behind Kevin Durant, which was roughly 9-10 per game. This never happened, with Sefolosha and Martin stepping up to take those extra minutes. However, Jones did get some very occasional spot minutes in the regular rotation. He never had more than a minute impact on a game though, so we look to the D-League to see how Jones is doing.

While with the 66ers, Jones wasn't the tour-de-force that Jeremy Lamb was, but he did provide a great performance every other game. His problem as this point seems to be consistency. He was rarely inefficient or hurting the team, but there were definitely nights where he faded into the background. In terms of his role, his main skill is beating his typically slower opponents to a spot on the floor and shooting. He has a bit of a post game and can shoot turnaround jumpers, but it's hard to say whether he's good enough to do that in the NBA. His transition game is really promising though, as he can run the floor, and he can hold his own against most D-League bigs defensively.

One thing to remember is that Perry Jones is 22, so his performance in the Summer League will be important if he wants to make it in the NBA. He's got to establish himself as a consistent part of the offense, and not relax on the gas pedal because Jackson and Lamb are doing all of the work. If he plays at PF, he'll also get a nice taste of what it's like to defend against bigger guys, which is important for his development. All in all, consider this a trial run. If the pieces fall in place, he could see minutes as a 9th or 10th man.

DeAndre Liggins

No. Name Pos. Ht. Wt. DOB From Pro Yrs.
14 DeAndre Liggins G 6-6 209 03/31/88 Kentucky 2

Last Team: The Oklahoma City Thunder
Key Stats: 11.6 PPG, 45.1% FG, 46.0% 3PT, 6.9 RPG, 4.3 APG, 1.7 SPG in 34 Minutes (D-League, 66ers)
2012 Summer League Stats: 5.6 PPG, 40% FG, 25% 3PT, 4.6 RPG, 2.8 APG, 0.8 SPG (With Magic)

DeAndre Liggins faced an uphill battle last year, and always seemed to destroy the odds. He was drafted at the tail end of the second round, and barely afforded any minutes on the Magic. He would go on to post a mediocre performance in the Summer League, and wasn't re-signed onto the Magic's roster, despite the team clearing house. His pre-season stint with the Thunder at the beginning of 2012 was thought to have been his last NBA stop in the eyes of many, but his defensive tenacity wowed the coaching staff. Somehow, the Thunder signed him as their 15th man.

But the story doesn't end there. James Harden was traded soon thereafter, and the Thunder's bench got thinner. Guards Daequan Cook and Lazar Hayward were gone, leaving the path open to a 10th man. But even then, the odds were against Liggins. Rookies Perry Jones and Jeremy Lamb appeared to be ahead of him on the depth chart. Still, he found a way to persevere, becoming the Thunder's 10th man by default. Even when reliable bench player Ronnie Brewer came to town, he couldn't manage to unseat Liggins. DeAndre would never get regular minutes, but he saw spot minutes here and there during serious games.

What sticks out the most is his performance on January 13th, against the Blazers. With both Sefolosha and Ibaka out, Liggins delivered an excellent defensive performance, limiting Wes Matthews to 2-8 shooting. He also nailed three triples, along with grabbing more rebounds than Collison and Thabeet put together. But what really set him apart was his consistent level of energy, extreme quickness, and excellent ability to recover. On the negative side, his shortcomings in that game were immediately apparent. He's too small and unathletic to score in the lane unless he's wide open, and he struggles against bigger defenders. Moreover, his outside offense isn't threatening enough on an NBA level to draw pressure, so he's not nearly the ballhandler that he is in the D-League.

At 25, Liggins is almost at the point where he is what he is. His shooting could definitely still improve, and I'd like to see him take a few more risks on defense. But, outside of that, I just don't see him getting tons better. Like Jackson, his main role here will be to give the younger guys an example of what level they need to play at. His numbers will definitely be respectable all-around, and he might excite you enough to make you want to see him on the floor next year. That opportunity may come, but I don't think his performance here will have a lot to do with it.

Daniel Orton

No. Name Pos. Ht. Wt. DOB From Pro Yrs.
33 Daniel Orton C 6-10 255 08/06/90 Kentucky 3

Last Team: The Oklahoma City Thunder
Key Stats: 12.5 PPG, 53.4% FG, 50% 3PT, 7.8 RPG, 1.9 APG, 1.1 SPG, 2.2 BPG in 28 Minutes (D-League, 66ers)
2012 Summer League Stats: 2.6 PPG, 36.4 FG%, 4.2 RPG in 14 Minutes (With Raptors)

Orton is the forgotten man on the Thunder roster, languishing as the third center on the bench behind Hasheem Thabeet. As the defacto 14th or 15th man on the roster, he barely managed to see the active roster, much less the floor. Again, we look to Tulsa to see how well he's developed.

The answer is kind of questionable. He's clearly on a lower level than the four guys I've documented above, but he's done more than hold his own in Tulsa. If he's close enough to the basket, he can score over just about any center with his strength, but he's not really adept from the block. His pick and roll game looks decent in the D-League, but it's hard to say whether he has the tools to make it work in the NBA. He has adept hands for his size and knows where to be on the floor for steals, but his actual defense still needs work, as he routinely finds himself in foul trouble.

He definitely has a lot of things to work on, but all in all, this is a make-or-break week for Daniel Orton. The Thunder are running short on both cap space and roster spots, they have four centers, and his contract is non-guaranteed. Don't get me wrong, under the right circumstances, Orton could supercede Thabeet and even get spot minutes next year. But from what little I've seen of him, it's hard to tell if he's at an NBA level yet.

The Picks:

Steven Adams

No. Name Pos. Ht. Wt. DOB From Pro Yrs.
12 Steven Adams C 7-0 250 07/28/93 Pittsburgh R

Last Team: The Pittsburgh Panthers
Key Stats: 7.2 PPG, 57.1% FG, 6.3 RPG, 2 BPG in 23 Minutes (NCAA, Pittsburgh)
2012 Summer League Stats: N/A

One thing that I think everyone should understand about Steven Adams is that he's very raw. When I talked with the Pitt college blogger a week ago, he asserted that he couldn't see Adams surpassing Thabeet or Orton in his first year of play. Coming from a fan blog, that's a pretty big caution sign. So if Adams is getting owned by a bunch of scrubs, remember that he's two years younger than everybody but Lamb and Jerrett, and that he first picked up a basketball 5 years ago.

Anyway, there are reasons to get excited about this guy. Steven has a mean combination of four attributes: Length, Strength, Speed, and Athleticism. No other big in this draft can say that. He can defend most big-time centers admirably, and avoid foul trouble. He's also a quick learner, and improved by leaps and bounds in his year at Pittsburgh. But despite all of this, he still needs to develop skill. He needs to become more consistent with his post moves, and realize what works for him. He needs to develop a consistent outside shot. He needs to develop better court awareness and footwork, both offensively and defensively. The list goes on.

But as you watch him this summer, I'd encourage you to take a good, hard look at where he is now. This will be by far the best competition he's faced in his life, and he might have some "deer in the headlights" moments. But those will undoubtedly be balanced out by flashes of greatness, and that's what we'll have to bank on over the next couple of years as he develops.

Andre Roberson

No. Name Pos. Ht. Wt. DOB From Pro Yrs.
21 Andre Roberson F 6-7 190 12/04/91 Colorado R

Last Team: The Colorado Buffaloes
Key Stats: 10.9 PPG, 48% FG, 32.8% 3PT, 11.2 RPG, 1.4 APG, 1.3 BPG, 2.2 SPG (NCAA, Colorado)
2012 Summer League Stats: N/A

Andre Roberson is an absolute defensive beast. In terms of sheer skill right now, he's neck and neck with Gorgui Dieng as the draft's best overall defender. He can hit a shot from decent range, knows his space on the floor well, and is an excellent rebounder. There's a reason the Thunder traded up to get this guy. A lot of teams probably wanted to snipe him at the end of the first round.

He does have some serious warning signs though. He was always the third or fourth best scorer on a middling NCAA team, which tells you volumes about his ability to score in the NBA. He's got the skillset of a power forward, but at 6'7", he would get outmatched at that position. Furthermore, at 190 pounds, he's too light to be a power forward. For comparison, Reggie Jackson weighs 208 pounds at 6'3".

The one thing that's clear about Roberson is that he has the skills and mindset to make it in the NBA, and he has the willingness to learn that should push his game to new heights. The problem is finding out where he fits. If he's put in the wrong situation, all of his talents would be canceled out by weaknesses, and he could find himself without a job quickly. But I think he should show glimpses of what he can do in the Summer League, and he has the talent to be effective right away.

Grant Jerrett

No. Name Pos. Ht. Wt. DOB From Pro Yrs.
47 Grant Jerrett PF 220 220 07/08/93 Arizona R

Last Team: The Arizona Wildcats
Key Stats: 5.2 PPG, 40.9% FG, 40.5% 3PT FG, 3.6 RPG, 1 BPG in 18 Minutes (NCAA, Arizona)
2012 Summer League Stats: N/A

He's a long man with long range. That's all you really need to know about Grant Jerrett. He's 6'10', has a 7'2" wingspan, and is basically the prototypical Presti draftee. He was really underutilized in Arizona, regularly out-shined by more diverse offensive threats. Half of his offense at Arizona was three point shooting, and he can't really do much more than that, aside from rolling to the basket. His rim defense is above-average, and there's definitely hope for him to evolve into a viable NBA big, like a Matt Bonner or a Steve Novak.

As for this Summer, I wouldn't really expect too much out of him. He's more developed than Steven Adams, but he's not overly physically gifted and still has to grow into his frame. He'll probably come off the bench and hit a few threes, but I wouldn't expect much beyond that. He'll learn through his time in Tulsa next season.

The 66ers (Alumni Included):

Dwight Buycks

No. Name Pos. Ht. Wt. DOB From Pro Yrs.
12 Dwight Buycks PG 6-3 190 03-06-89 Marquette 2

Last Team: BCM Gravelines, LNB Pro A (France 1st Tier), Eurochallenge (Europe 3rd Tier)
Key Stats: 18.0 PPG, 45.7% FG, 38.4% 3PT, 3.2 RPG, 2.9 APG, 1.5 SPG in 32 Minutes (BCM Gravelines, LNB Pro A)
2012 Summer League Stats: 8.6 PPG, 54.3% FG, 1.6 APG in 14 Minutes

Dwight Buycks is an excellent undersized scoring guard, one of those that tears up Europe but doesn't make it to the NBA because of their lack of physical traits. A good example is Brian Roberts, who had to kick around Europe for a few years before finally making it onto the Hornets roster last year. You could go down the list. Bo McCalebb, Bobby Brown, and Hollis Price.... Does Buycks really have what those guys didn't?

In all reality, I'd lean towards no. He simply doesn't have enough skill to be a point guard, and his small size doesn't justify slotting him at shooting guard. Still, that won't keep him from an exciting performance. Even though he only got spot minutes on the Summer League team last year as a backup point guard, he managed to impress me more than anyone on the team not named Reggie Jackson. He could score off the dribble easily and efficiently. Furthermore, his numbers in Tulsa and at Gravelines are impressive, as he's shot over 48% in both leagues.

If the Thunder weren't in such a crunch, I'd love to have Buycks as a third point guard. But in all reality, Buycks needs to answer two huge questions about himself. 1. Can he score effectively and consistently when paired with big talent? 2. Can he play point guard, avoiding turnovers and creating offense for others? The next 6 days will begin to scratch the surface of both of those questions, but we'll be far from answering them, especially with Buycks likely on the bench. He'll likely have a bright future of big contracts with teams in Europe. But, hay, you never know.

Ron Anderson, Jr.

No. Name Pos. Ht. Wt. DOB From Pro Yrs.
42 Ron Anderson F 6-9 255 09/12/89 South Florida 1

Last Team: The Tulsa 66ers
Key Stats: 6.0 PPG, 49% FG, 4.9 RPG, 1.3 APG in 21 Minutes (D-League, 66ers)
2012 Summer League Stats: N/A

Here's a perfect example of the classical power forward. Ron Anderson loves to get in the post and muscle his way to points, mainly scoring on offensive rebounds and dumps to him right next to the basket. He has great post positioning, and when he gets it in the right spot, he's almost unstoppable. But he doesn't have the moves or skill to score it off the block, though he can occasionally hit a 10 foot jumper. Defensively, he's good but not great. He can hold his ground, but isn't terrific at getting at other players' shots.

The best comparison for Ron Anderson I can think of is Ryan Reid. Here's a guy who wasn't the best player on his college team by a longshot, and nobody expected to do well. But somehow, he worked hard and produced consistently, so he found himself in the pros. Reid now plays overseas for good money, and I expect Anderson will at some point as well. However, he'll find himself playing mostly mop-up minutes in the summer, and banging with the prospects in practice. It would take a huge performance to get him on an NBA roster.

Tony Taylor

No. Name Pos. Ht. Wt. DOB From Pro Yrs.
7 Tony Taylor G 6-0 191 09-09-90 George Washington 1

Last Team: The Tulsa 66ers
Key Stats: 7.0 PPG, 42.3% FG, 40.6% 3PT, 1.7 RPG, 3.2 APG in 23 Minutes (D-League, 66ers)
2012 Summer League Stats: N/A

Don't look at those stats I listed above. Those are pretty deceiving. Tony Taylor is actually a guy who has some degree of hype around him in the D-League. He started off the year as a somewhat average backup point guard out of a mid-major school. But he exploded for some double digit performances towards the end of the season, and got starter's minutes during the playoffs. For what it's worth, he's also hella fun to watch.

Taylor has the same problem that Dwight Buycks has in terms of size, because he's definitely on the small side of NBA point guards. But he also differs from Buycks in that he's a lot more effective as a ballhandler. He still turns it over a bit too much, but he's excellent at reading the floor from the top of the arc, and he can make some really impressive looking assists. He's also a great long-range bomber, especially off of the dribble. The problem with Taylor is consistency. His stats are all over the map in terms of points, assists, and turnovers, and he needs to learn how to hone himself in and perform on a consistent basis. He also needs to learn how to pass out of traffic.

With Jackson and Buycks on the roster, it's hard to see Taylor get consistent minutes, much less make the Thunder's roster. But he will see some time against two quality guards in practice, and he'll also be playing for the Miami Heat in Vegas next week, so I can definitely see his game improving. He might make an NBA roster next year, but if he doesn't, I'd love to have him as a potential call-up on the 66ers.

The Rest:

Michael Snaer

No. Name Pos. Ht. Wt. DOB From Pro Yrs.
2 Michael Snaer SG 6-4 180 06/21/90 Florida State R

Last Team: The Florida State Seminoles
Key Stats: 14.8 PPG, 42.5% FG, 38.4% 3PT, 4.5 RPG, 2.5 APG, 1.0 SPG
2012 Summer League Stats: N/A

If there was a undrafted rookie to get excited about, this would be the guy. Michael Snaer was an excellent scoring two guard at Florida State, leading his team in scoring two years in a row. He's basically the prototypical all-around shooting guard, doing a little bit of everything for his team. Oh yeah, and he also hit 6 game winning shots, all of which are both fun and amazing to watch.

Despite his great athleticism and playing against some great talent in the ACC, Snaer does have a number of downsides. His on-ball defense needs a lot of work, and he doesn't play on that end with a lot of intensity. He's not an incredibly efficient scorer, and will force the ball into the paint a lot, leading to a lot of misses. He's also small and light for his position, like so many guys on this roster.

At 23, Snaer basically has the tools to impress you right now, and his game should translate to the NBA without too much trouble. I think what caused him to fall out of the draft, despite his talent, is the fear that he couldn't adjust to being a secondary scorer on whatever team he was playing. His offensive game could very easily spiral into the red, and his defense doesn't do enough to inspire you. All in all, I see him getting decent backup minutes on this team, but he has to make his mark if he wants a NBA squad to pick him up in the fall.

Andrew Smith

No. Name Pos. Ht. Wt. DOB From Pro Yrs.
44 Andrew Smith C 6-11 180 09-09-90 Butler R

Last Team: The Butler Bulldogs
Key Stats: 11.3 PPG, 49.6% FG, 29.8% 3PT, 6.1 RPG, 1.4 APG in 27.5 Minutes (NCAA, Butler)
2012 Summer League Stats: N/A

Andrew Smith, despite the forgettable name, played significant minutes on the two remarkable Butler teams that went to the Final Four, along with last year's impressive squad. He was always a decent scorer for his size, possessing a solid mid-range shot and good ability on the pick and roll. But the big knock on him is his lack of tenacity. He can't score really well on the post, and lacks the aggressiveness that's needed to play on a high level. He's also a below-average rebounder for his size, and can't really guard guys who are bigger than him.

In this year's Summer League, there's no question that Smith will ride the pine. He'll mostly function to challenge the other prospects on the practice court. If he can develop his shot, post moves, and rebounding significantly, then he could maaaaybe make the NBA. But he'll most likely find himself in the D-League or overseas next season. I mean, if Matt Howard couldn't make an NBA roster, how could he?

Kyle Kuric

No. Name Pos. Ht. Wt. DOB From Pro Yrs.
8 Kyle Kuric SG 6-4 195 08/25/89 Louisville 1

Last Team: Asefa Estudiantes, Liga ACB (Spain 1st Tier)
Key Stats: 8.1 PPG, 50% FG, 39.4% 3PT, 2.0 RPG, 0.8 APG
2012 Summer League Stats: N/A

Kyle Kuric rounds out our list of 14 players, and he's another guy to watch. He's not the explosive off-the-dribble scorer that Michael Snaer is, but he is an excellent shooter who can hit it from just about any spot on the floor. The corner three is his specialty, and his athleticism allows him to finish well on the break. In his Louisville days, he was known for the "Dunk of the Year". His defense is above average for his position, and he did a decent job of holding his own as a scorer in the world's second best domestic league last year. Kuric actually spent a good bit of time playing with Lucas Noguiera last year, and he'll likely do so again next year, as he's in the middle of a 2 Year contract with Asefa Estudiantes.

However, Kuric has his own share of problems. He's kind of stuck in-between being a dynamic scorer and a solid shooter. He has more moves than your average shooter, but he can't score well enough off-the-dribble. On the flip side, he's not consistent enough to be considered a true shooter. Thus, he's stuck in no-man's land, with neither skill good enough to make him appealing on an NBA level. Pair that with his small size for a shooting guard and bad passing ability, and he's got his work cut out for him. Nonetheless, he will probably at least see some minutes in the Summer League this year, and he'll do his darndest to make a roster. At this point, however, his skillset leaves him destined for Europe.

Overall Thoughts:

Last year's Summer League team was really boring, but this year's Summer League team will be extremely fun to watch. Every guard on the roster is an elite scorer, and all of the bigs aside from Smith and Anderson bring some degree of athleticism. I'm expecting a bunch of fast break action, crazy assists, and clutch shots. I would hypothesize on the system that they'll run, but most Summer League teams just devolve into different players trying to showcase their talent in different ways, and the strategy varies widely from game to game. The players on this roster will bring their own level of excitement though, and I'm actually looking forward to the week. (That wasn't the case last year, trust me.)
