Latest News And Notes
Beaubois vs. Wall
Beaubois' summer has been inconsistent, sometimes sloppy and sometimes splashy. He ranks ninth in the Summer League in scoring at 18.3 points per game, but he's shooting just 42.0 percent from the floor and he's dishing out only 4.0 assists in 32 minutes a game as he tries to learn how to lead a team as the point guard.
Wall has been pretty darn good, ranking second in scoring at 23.8 points on 44.4 percent shooting. Now, get this -- he's averaging 9.0 assists handling point guard duties. Wall is also averaging 3.5 steals a game.
Starting Lineup: July 15
Dallas PG Roddy Beaubois has averaged 18.3 points over three games in Vegas, but he'll have his hands full with John Wall on Thursday.

That's incredible for a late second-rounder.
Ebanks has shot much better than his reputation suggested while still slashing off post entries. His motor ran from super-hot to warm, something he needs to work on.
