He became one of the most versatile big men to ever wear an Arkansas uniform and stands alone with Razorback legend Oliver Miller as the only players to reach 1,000 points, 600 rebounds and 200 blocks. He's been practicing with the Nuggets' summer league team this week in Denver.

With two National Basketball Association summer leagues down and one to go, now is a good time to check out how the former Kentucky Wildcats are doing in the pros.

After a slow start in his summer league debut, Briscoe had 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting, two assists and two steals against the Spurs on Thursday.

Following the Celtics' win over the 86-81 win over the Los Angeles Lakers, Brown explained to reporters how his summer-league role has changed from untested rookie to team leader.


Brandon Ashley, a center from Arizona, led the Mavericks with 21 points, including 10 in the second quarter, and was on the receiving end of a pair of nifty assists from Smith in the final quarter.

However, there will still be plenty of names to watch during Summer League who could land a coveted spot on the bench for the Timberwolves.

Williams was 8-of-15 from the field and 4-of-7 from behind the 3-point line.

Even with his shot not falling, the former IL guard was still able to make an impact in his shift from starting for the Dallas Mavericks in the Orlando Summer League to starting for the Cavaliers. The game will be televised on ESPNU. He'll continue to do so in Las Vegas.
