Las Vegas Summer League also known as Sin City is back in the picture and the NBA fever is catching up even if the likes of LeBron, Curry, and others will be up for a big show later in the year. The Summer League moves past mid-way point and in this game, the Chicago Bulls will clash against Memphis Grizzlies to find out which team has more sway. More about CHI vs MEM Dream 11 will be given below.
Chicago Bulls became loaded after acquiring Lonzo Ball and DeMar DeRozan who will join Nikola Vucevic and Zach LaVine. After Caruso’s addition, Chicago now has Lonzo and Caruso as PGs while LaVine and DeRozan as two shooting guards where DeMar can probably make a switch to SF. If we analyse the starting five then Lonzo, LaVine, DeRozan, Vucevic, will be joined by either Thaddeus Young or Patrick Williams as Lauri Markannen’s future is up in the air. However, Patrick Williams has shown that he can be an effective player at both ends and is shining in the Summer League, showing his versatility.

Patrick Williams (last match stats)
Sean McDermott (last match stats)
1. Sean McDermott
Sean is a long-range bomber who can do a great job of getting open and making transitions threes. He can also knock down mid-range shots and has the ability to make other types of scoring shots too. McDermott is one of the candidates as the Super Player in the Dream11 Fantasy basketball scenario.
2. Patrick Williams
Patrick is a Forward who has a lot of similarities with Kawhi Leonard on the defensive end. He has a long wingspan and his lateral movement enables him to stifle offensive players. He can also score using athletic moves and his rebounding is constantly improving. Williams can prove to be a winning piece for the Bulls as his ceiling is high.
3. Ziaire Williams
Williams is the number 10 pick for Memphis in this year’s draft and this youngster surely has shown that he can shoot from long range and even finish at the rim. However, where will the Grizzlies find him minutes after giving up on their important player in Jonas Valanciunas.
4. Ayo Dosunmu
Rookie Ayo may have a bit troubling adjusting to the NBA after college and he may have to wait sometime before receiving significant minutes. The guard may swing between Chicago Bulls and their G-League affiliate Windy City Bulls considering how raw he is right now.
5. Sam Merill
Sam is a shooter by nature and can act also in the capacity of a playmaker. He may not receive many minutes for the regular Memphis squad but he can certainly hoop.
6. Jaylen Adams
07. Olivier Sarr
08. Ethan Thompson
