The Memphis Grizzles played in their first game of the NBA Las Vegas Summer League Saturday night, defeating the Indiana Pacers 101-75.
Former WKU big man Ben Lawson put up a stat line of 7 pts & 12 rebounds. Lawson stands out as a decent big man for the Grizzles putting up decent points and rebounding numbers in a limited minutes role. Lawson’s performance from the Salt Lake City games has carried over to Vegas.
The Grizzles will play their second game of the NBA Summer League Sunday vs. the Los Angles Clippers at 10:30 PM on ESPN2.
If Lawson can keep this play up he will most likely be in contention for a contract with the Memphis Hustle for next season (G-League affiliate).
