2. Brandon Randolph’s impact

This may be a cop-out, as it’s a very general concept to be watching for, but with the performance Brandon Randolph had in the Dallas Mavericks’ first Summer League game, he’s worthy of some eyes.

The 25-year-old came off the bench for the Mavericks’ in their first Summer League squad, earning a spot on the roster after spending this past year with the Austin Spurs in the G League.

He played 21:02 off the pine - the second-most minutes of anyone on the bench - and did a little bit of everything for Dallas, despite not getting the most hype heading into the game.

Randolph finished the game with 10 points, three rebounds, one assist, and two steals while shooting 3-of-9 from the field and 1-of-5 from behind the three-point line.

Obviously, his efficiency wasn’t great against the Thunder, but he was super active. He was able to sprint out in transition, giving the Mavericks options on the run, and he even hit a corner three.

At 6-foot-6, he has good size at the wing position, and if he can continue to play with the same energy as he showed in the first game, he could be worth of at least a place in Dallas’ G League program.

And if he hits some more of his three-point shots, he could even be looking at consideration for a two-way spot.
