4. Dud - Marcus Bingham Jr.
For the majority of Summer League, Marcus Bingham Jr. found himself earning minimal minutes. He was stuck at the bottom of the Dallas Mavericks rotation for the entirety of the vent.
Through the first four Summer League games, Bingham played just 5.0 minutes per contest, appearing in only two of the games. It was undoubtedly a disappointing summer for the seven-foot, 21-year-old forward.
In the Mavericks final Summer League game, Bingham Jr. played 8:46 off the bench, earning the majority of his minutes during garbage time at the end of the contest.
Bingham Jr. finished the game against Atlanta with zero points, three rebounds, one steal, and one block while shooting 0-of-5 from the floor and 0-of-2 from behind the three-point line.
The youngster began this past season earning a contract from the Texas Legends, but an injury quickly ended his season before it even began, meaning he earned zero G League experience.
Bingham Jr. would have liked to earn a bit more playing time during Summer League, but after a season rehabbing his injury, he should be in line for another shot with the Texas Legends heading into next season.
It’s an unfortunate story, but hopefully, Bingham Jr. will be able to bounce back and show what he’s got in the G League moving forward.
