Today marked the first time basketball has been officially (somewhat) back at the practice facility in nearly three months. And no, pre-draft workouts don't count; there's no 5-on-5 taking place. Normally, Summer League only has two, maybe three key players to keep track of. But that's not the case here in the Rose City. After taking a quick glance at the 2013 Las Vegas Summer League roster
, you can see there's at least seven players who contributed to the team last season and who are expected to do much of the same this fall.
With that said, take a few minutes and listen to what Meyers Leonard, Allen Crabbe, CJ McCollum, and Coach Terry Stotts had to say about the first day of practice. Oh yeah, be sure to scroll all the way down to the bottom, there's a little something extra for you guys. It's not much, but there's about three minutes of raw footage from Damian Lillard's post-practice workout where you can see he's picking up right where he left off in April. Watch closely and you'll see a cameo from Wesley Matthews and his automatic jump shot.
