Jared Cunningham (hamstring) could miss summer league
|Mavericks first-round pick Jared Cunningham comments on his draft experience, how his game translates to the pros and more. |
“How much he plays in the summer league, if he plays at all, is to be determined,” said coach Rick Carlisle, who emphasized that the Mavs’ primary concern is making sure Cunningham is ready for the first practice of training camp on Sept. 29.
The Mavs welcomed Cunningham along with second-round picks Bernard James and Jae Crowder during an introductory news conference Tuesday. The rookies will all have a chance to earn rotation spots on the Mavs’ renovated roster.
“This is the beginning of a long journey,” Carlisle said. “There’s going to be opportunity here. That’s pretty obvious.”
