I think that Jeff Ayers and Xavier Rathon Mayes have earned camp invites.

None of the guys from summer league really stood out for me to warrant a camp invite. Ayres is a good energy big, XRM has questionable decision making, King started out well but really doesn't seem like a fit. One player I'd like to see in our SBL squad is Holland - liked his defensive intensity but not much offense. There are more talented players we can bring to camp

Mayes has some potential, but he reminds me an awful lot of Ennis. He would struggle mightily against NBA caliber players and probably be out of the league fairly quickly. Ayers isn't an NBA player either. He has the size and some toughness, but it's not hard to see why he's 31 years old and playing on a SL team. If anyone on the SL roster was to get a camp invite, they'd be the first ones to get cut. Most of them barely look like G-League level players to be honest.

If we agree that Hart, Caruso, Wagner, Svi, Bonga and Newman will be at camp.....I might would consider inviting Nick King....and less likely Jeffrey Carroll. If the FO truly believes in Joel Berry (who was one of the 1st UDFA's signed, rumored to have pre draft agreement)....they could invite him to get a look at since he was injured all summer league.

Other SL teams FA's I would consider if they are not signed before camp....

PJ Dozier
Christian Wood
KJ McDaniels
Archie Goodwin
Marcus Derrickson
Trevon Duval

I think we can go to camp with 20 players with contracts, right?

Ayers only cuz of Kawhi.
I can do without #30, XRM, #30, #21. Did I mention #30?

Probably just Ayres. Rathan Mayes just feels too tunnel-vision like Ennis.

Don't like Goodwin and not particularly excited about KJ.

Derrickson can shoot although small for center.

Add Troy Williams released by the Knicks.

Ayers/X.Rathan-Mayes/Jonathan Williams

I'd definitely bring them to a camp invite or at least make sure they get to the G-League team. If Ayers is a solid 6'10 his game is pretty refined from a Vet perspective, which could come in useful if a Big goes down and we need to stay within budget.

Outside of the obvious guys, Id bring in ayres given the agent relationship.

Might just do the agent and solid and give him the 15h spot. I scratch your back, you scratch mine....

Hart, SVI, Caruso, Wagner for certain.

Newman, Bonga, ONLY because we signed 2 way contracts way before we should have.

If anyone else, then maybe Ayres and Williams for his defense, although they both are a long shot for anything beyond South Bay.

No to XRM. As others said, very tunnel visioned player. He had a couple good moments but, to put it in perspective, Vander Blue was almost as selfish and a far, far better player than XRM, and he couldn't stick.

This Summer League team was essentially Hart, SVI, Caruso carrying this team through 10 games tightly packed together in two cities. Wagner helped some before he went down. Huge testament to Hart, Svi, Caruso that they made it to the SL championship game with a roster this thin.

Matt Thomas?


I'd love to have T-Rob back or maybe give Motijuanas a chance

YES!!! Matt Thomas!!! Thx!

I for sure thought we were going to at least G-League him last year. Did another NBA team pick him up. He had great chemistry with Lonzo & Kuz. Knew where to be all the time, they were finding him and he was hitting those 3's like nothing! Would love to see him back playing with those guys!

none of those guys. The level of talent dropped off anytime the bench came in, plus if we "needed" another player it would be a center. I didnt see anyone that would be better than Mcgee

WHAT THE BLEEPING (BLEEP)!

Jonathan Williams aka #21 is what garbages throw in the garbage.

we can have up to 20 guys on the roster going into camp....if Caruso and Newman keep their 2 Way contracts....that currently leaves us with 4 potential slots.

Camp would benefit by the presence of Travis Wear again. He's someone with a bit of feel for the overall game, plus he does hustle and present decent skills for pass/shoot options as well. In terms of sticking with the club, not much chance of that happening, but he would give depth of another tall player as well, something that the club might need,
