If we grade the personal stats, Vasquez won, but neither was impressive in their first go. Vasquez didn't start, played for 17 minutes, and was 1-3 from the field (0-2 from deep). He did end up with 3 rebounds and 4 assists, though those stats were somewhat mitigated by his 3 turnovers.
Milbourne, meanwhile, didn't have the greatest of first impressions, especially considering he, unlike Vasquez, has no guaranteed contract and is fighting for his NBA life. To be fair, though, he barely saw the court at all: 3 minutes, 0-3, no rebounds, 1 turnover. Not an impressive statline.
Meanwhile, if you wondering, yes, Eric Hayes was cut from the Wizards' summer league roster and will probably head off to Europe somewhere. Don't fret over him; European basketball still pays well, and I'm sure he'll make a good living out of it and maybe come back to coach one day.
While we're on the topic of former Maryland players and their pro whereabouts, Nik Caner-Medley is still around, and he's rocking. I have no idea what NCM has done the past couple of years, but he put up a team-high 17 points for the Clippers today in their blowout loss against the Wizards. How awesome is that to see?
Oh, and after a brief stint in Europe, James Gist is giving the American pro game another shot with the Spurs in summer league; he started and turned in an 8 point, 5 board performance. D.J. Strawberry is back, too; his Lakers lost to the Knicks partially thanks to his 12 points, 3 assists, and 0 turnovers. Neither of those performances will turn any heads, but they're enough to keep them in the conversation.
Ekene Ibekwe is in the summer league, too. This might just turn into a daily feature.
