Skal Labissiere (written by @dugger_fern):

Skal Labissiere didn’t dominate games as we’d expect a second-year talent to do in summer league, but I’m not worried about his subpar numbers. He experimented in Vegas as a screen-and-roll rim runner when partnered with Georgios Papagiannis, which is out of his comfort zone at this stage of his career. Plus, players at the guard positions generally dominate the ball during summer league which limited Skal’s opportunities.

Playing with Willie Cauley-Stein in the regular season allows Labissiere to shift towards his more familiar position as a spot-up shooter and posting up on smaller players. These games didn’t waver my positive outlook on Skal’s future, but I had to give him a C+ grade due to his overall impact this summer.

C+. Skal struggled during his time in Las Vegas. But to be fair, he was playing a role on the court that was new to him.. Power Forward. Sacramento Kings. SKAL LABISSIERE
