The Las Vegas Summer League was a chance for local first-round picks Kyle Kuzma and Caleb Swanigan to play huge roles, but they weren't the only ones to perform well during the two weeks of action. Spencer Butterfield, Jeremy Senglin and Jalen Moore all displayed impressive shooting skills at times, while big men Jakob Poeltl, Eric Mika and Joel Bolomboy all showed what they could do on the backboards.
Here is a look at how the players with local ties performed through the three weeks of Summer League action in Orlando, Utah and Las Vegas.
