Samanic provided 11 points (3-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists and three steals across 22 minutes during the Spurs' 79-78 loss to the Suns in a Las Vegas Summer League game Wednesday. Samanic continued to scuffle with his shot Wednesday, but he still found his way to an impressive line thanks to his free-throw shooting and work on the boards. The 2019 first-round pick has made a consistent impact in Las Vegas, as he's now averaging 10.3 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.3 steals over three games. Samanic had opened summer with similarly impressive numbers over two games in the Salt Lake City league, supplying 10.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.5 blocks across 23.0 minutes.
Samanic (rest) won't play in Wednesday's summer league game against the Jazz, Jabari Young of The Athletic reports. It's unsurprising that Shamanic's getting the day off after averaging 10.0 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 23.0 minutes through the first two games of the Salt Lake City session. Barring any injury, the rookie forward will likely return to the floor in Las Vegas.
