Blakeney appeared in 19 games with the young Bulls last season and averaged 7.9 points while on a two-way contract. After being named G League Rookie of the Year for his work on the Windy City Bulls, he'll now be a full-time member of Chicago and provide some decent depth on the wing.
Blakeney tallied 24 points (8-22 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 5-8 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one steal across 31 minutes during the Bulls' 72-66 loss to the Pistons in a Las Vegas Summer League contest Saturday.
As has often been the case in summer league play, Blakeney was firing away when he was on the court, with his shot attempt total more than double that of his next closest teammate. The 21-year-old has posted averages of 21.0 points (on 40.0 percent shooting), 4.4 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.0 steal across 30.6 minutes in five games in Vegas, and he looks primed to push for an increase in the 16.5 minutes per contest that he logged during his rookie campaign.
Blakeney recorded 28 points (7-13 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 10-10 FT), four assists, three rebounds and one steal across 31 minutes during Wednesday's 95-83 summer league victory over the Mavericks.
Blakeney's impressive scoring continued Wednesday. The second-year guard out of LSU, who will be competing for reserve minutes on the Bulls, was averaging 17.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.0 steal coming into Wednesday's fourth summer league appearance.
Blakeney accumulated 23 points (9-21 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five rebounds, five assists and one steal in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 101-93 summer league loss to the Hawks.
Blakeney couldn't find his shot during the team's previous tilt, going 2-of-15 from the field. However, Tuesday's marks his second 20-plus point performance out of three summer league games. There will likely be legitimate competition for reserve minutes on Chicago, and Blakeney could be involved.
Blakeney finished with just five points on 2-of-15 shooting to go with five rebounds and nothing else in Sunday's 69-60 summer league loss to the Lakers.
After an impressive outing Saturday, Blakeney came back to earth with a thud on Sunday. He finished just 2-of-15 from the field including 1-of-6 from beyond the arc. He is certainly not afraid to shoot the ball and while he will put up the occasional gem, he is well down in the backcourt pecking order which will limit his value to only the deepest of leagues.
