Kabangele provided 15 points (3-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 8-10 FT), nine rebounds and a steal across 29 minutes during Thursday's 83-80 win over the Kings in the LAs Vegas Summer League. Kabangeke struggled with his shot a bit on Thursday, but he continues to make his presence known under the basket on defense. He's amassed 31 rebounds so far in Summer League action, and the first-round pick's skills on both ends of the floor put him in the upper echelon of rookies participating in the Summer League.
Kabengele totaled 13 points (4-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, four blocks and an assist across 23 minutes in the Clippers' 90-72 win over the Wizards in the Las Vegas Summer League on Tuesday. Kabengele continued his strong summer league play, pulling down seven boards and flashing his upside as a defender with four swats. The first-round pick has already shown grit and determination in his short time with Los Angeles - two traits that will play well on this Clippers team.
Kabengele totaled 19 points (8-16 FG, 3-4 3Pt), five rebounds and one block across 27 minutes in the Clippers' 87-75 loss to the Grizzlies in a Las Vegas Summer League game on Sunday. The 2019 first-round pick put together his second strong effort in as many summer league games, checking in as the top scorer on the Clippers for the night. Kabengele is averaging 20.0 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.0 block across 26.0 minutes over his first two contests in the desert while gaining some valuable playing time in anticipation of his first NBA training camp.
Kabengele registered 21 points (7-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-8 FT), 10 rebounds, an assist and a block across 25 minutes in Saturday's 93-87 win over the Lakers in the Las Vegas Summer League. The Clippers' 2019 first-round pick made a splash in his debut with the Clippers. The news of Paul George and Kaehi Leonard coming town will no doubt dampen his chances of seeing significant time at forward, however. While it's likely that he will make the roster, the injection of two All-Stars at his position will likely restrict the Florida State product to a reserve role.
Kabengele was selected by the Clippers with the No. 27 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. Kabengele was voted the 2018-19 ACC Sixth Man of the Year, averaging 13.2 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.5 blocks across 21.6 minutes. His shot-blocking upside and potential three-point shooting ability (36.9 percent from three on 65 attempts last season) make him a prototypical modern NBA center.
