Las Vegas Summer League Bullets: Day 5
By Sean Highkin, Hardwood Paroxysm
- Bucksketball's Jeremy Schmidt likes what he's seen so far from Milwaukee's second-round pick, Doron Lamb: "Lamb was aggressive in everything early. He shot when he was open. He cut very hard. He rubbed shoulders on screens and changed speeds quickly. Offensively, he was filling the same role he’ll likely take on in Milwaukee -- running off screens and being asked to make some decisions with the ball after the initial action."
