Las Vegas is known as “Sin City”, however, for many hoopers, it is a destination for furthering their profession through the biggest basketball league in the world known as the NBA. Las Vegas is going to witness a game between Dallas Mavericks and Denver Nuggets here. More about DAL vs DEN Dream 11 will be given below.
Summer League is a tricky place as coaches try new faces, old faces, and keep shuffling the lineups. Here, some people come to find a roster spot, others to train for the regular season, especially high draft picks from recent years. While there are also players who have even started in the league but are finding their way back by balling out against aspiring players. In this game, the Dallas Mavericks are going to square off against the Denver Nuggets, two teams who made the playoffs last year, however, in the case of Mavericks there is room for bringing in fresh faces to bolster the talent around Luka Doncic. Nuggets look to train their players like Bol Bol who hold a lot of promise and keep a lookout on the talent that can help them establish a big run this season.

Bol Bol (last match stats)
1. Tyrell Terry
Terry is a Point Guard who is seeking a backup role in the Mavericks squad and he would need to prove himself more if he is to play that huge role. Tyrell has shown glimpses of being an effective guard but is yet to gain the consistency to succeed at a big level. In the Summer League, he has had some high-scoring games but the NBA Regular Season is a different beast. In this setting, he is a candidate as the Super-Player in the Dream11 Fantasy basketball scenario.
2. Bol Bol
Bol Bol may be 7 feet 2 inches but his game is more like a Forward than a Center. He can run the floor and uses his large wingspan and athleticism to put down slam dunks, while his specialty is perhaps hitting one-two dribble pull-ups from distance. Bol can be chosen as a Pro-Player in the Dream 11 Fantasy scenario.
3. LJ Figueroa
LJ who has been a part of the Dominican Republic squad twice has shown a ton of promise in the Summer League. He has impressed especially at the rebounding end and although his scoring looks unpolished at times, he does have a lot of athleticism.
4. Nah’son Hyland
Also known as “Bones”, Hyland’s primary weapon is the long-range shooting and he has shown in the Summer League that he can indeed knock threes down. Hyland will have to work hard to earn some minutes in the NBA Regular Season but he can fit into a backup role for sure.
5. Nate Hinton
Nate ticks a lot of boxes at the guard spot but may need a better shot selection procedure. However, he does a lot more than scoring the ball and can hoard board while also setting up his teammates for easy shots.
6. Zeke Nnaji
7. Eugene Omoruyi
8. Caleb Agada
BENCH: Robert Franks, Carlik Jones, Feron Hunt, Devontae Shuler, EJ Onu, Devon Patterson, Josh Green.
