The NBA is back as the Summer League gets underway with some heated competitions. In this game, the Atlanta Hawks will face the Philadelphia 76ers. More about ATL vs PHI Dream 11 will be given below.
The Summer League is about finding fits and most players auditioning for a roster spot to further their professional basketball career. Usually, rookies who are fresh from the NBA draft get a chance to be the ace players of the team, and thus, there is a lot of young and fresh talent on display. However, it is not like that some NBA regulars don’t feature in the competition, as there are players who look to train through the League and several others who like to regain their footing in the league. Both teams are in win-now mode and maybe aiming for some established players but this is a great chance to develop their young uns as well.
Match Timing: 13 August, @ 06:30 AM
Venue: Cox Pavilion, Las Vegas
The contest will take place at Cox Pavilion, which is one of the designated spots for basketball matches in the MGM Resorts NBA Summer League.

Sharife Cooper(last match stats)
Tyrese Maxey (last match stats)
*stats from last game*
Maxey figured in the Sixers rotation every now and then last season. Tyrese is a superb shooter who can also penetrate and create chances inside. Maxey may be a step ahead of his peers in the Summer League and this can serve as practice time for him. Tyrese is a candidate as the Super-Player in the Dream11 Fantasy basketball scenario.
2. Sharife Cooper
Cooper is a prototypical Point Guard with superb court vision and a lovely shooting stroke. He is on a two-way contract with the Hawks and surely has the potential to make a mark in the NBA. That is why he can be chosen as a Pro-Player in the Dream 11 Fantasy scenario.
3. Paul Reed
Reed earns his keeps on the defensive and rebounding end but also uses his athleticism to finish inside. He is the reigning NBA G League MVP indicating that he has the capability to play at a high level.
4. Jalen Johnson
Hawks picked Johnson at number 20 in this year’s draft and he has shown a lot of substance in the Summer League. He is an athletic Forward who is dangerous in fastbreak situations and plays with a chip on his shoulder.
5. Isaiah Joe
Joe is a great off-the-ball player who also displays some dribbling moves. His primary skill is to knock down long-range bombs and he can be a great floor stretcher at the guard position.
6. Skylar Mays
7. Rayjon Tucker
8. Jaden Springer
BENCH: Admiral Schofield, Ibi Watson, Max Heidegger, Javin DeLaurier, A.J. Lawson, Nahziah Carter, Juwan Durham, Justin Jaworski, Jeremiah Martin, Eric Moreland.
