LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – One-stop shopping for a look at how local guys are performing the NBA Summer League:

*Terrence Jones didn't play on Saturday, but has been ranked as the third best rookie in Las Vegas. The only guys ahead of Jones are former Weber Star point guard Damian Lillard and UConn wing Jeremy Lamb, who is Jones's teammate with Houston.

Jones averaged 18.2 points and 8.6 rebounds in Las Vegas. Kevin McHale, the Rockets' coach, is only lukewarm on featuring rookies, but Jones will average double-figures for Houston next season. Book it.

*Marquis Teague's summer league struggles continued. He made three of nine shots and had four turnovers and five assists in more than 26 minutes for the Bulls.

In four summer league games, Teague is shooting less than 30 percent and has yet to make a three-point shot. He also has 18 turnovers and 12 assists.

Get well quickly, Derrick Rose.

*Doron Lamb had eight points, two assists and two rebounds for Milwaukee, but made only two of eight shots.

*Darius Miller failed to score and grabbed one rebound in only three minutes off the bench for New Orleans. 

*Nolan Smith did not play for Portland and will miss the remainder of the Summer League because of the concussion he suffered last week.

*Robbie Hummel had four points and five boards in nearly 15 minutes for Minnesota. Taken 58th in the second round, Hummel could sneak in there and make the T-Wolves.
