The second game of the NBA Summer League is not as deep on local connections, but it certainly has the interest of the fans in attendance. Cox Pavilion has nearly filled up as O.J. Mayo is set to take the floor for the Grizzlies.
Memphis also has Darrell Arthur, who was part of the national champion Kansas team that knocked UNLV out of the NCAA Tournament, and Javaris Crittenton, who played for the Georgia Tech team that UNLV knocked out of the 2006-07 NCAA Tournament.
The Hornets’ roster features a name familiar to Rebel fans. Former UNLV star Dalron Johnson is on the roster. We’ll see if he gets any action.
