The NBA Summer League is reaching past the halfway mark and the battles are only going to get more interesting with the Playoffs hovering now. In this game, the LA Lakers will take on another storied Franchise in Detroit Pistons. More about LAL vs DET Dream 11 will be given below.
In Summer League, teams field unpredictable lineups but there are still some constant performers. Coming to the Lakers, they are not in the development phase anymore and their roster is pretty much set with LeBron, AD, Westbrook, and Melo joining forces. However, two players have seen their dreams come true as Max McClung and Chaundee Brown Jr. landed contracts with the team. On the other hand, their youngsters Cade Cunningham, Killian Hayes, and Saddiq Bey are getting much-needed practice time and can figure a lot in the rotation for the Pistons as they are a rebuilding team.
Match Timing: 15 August, @ 07:30 AM
Venue: Thomas and Mack Center, Las Vegas
The contest will take place at Thomas and Mack Center, which is one of the designated spots for basketball matches in the NBA Summer League.

Devontae Cacok (last match stats)
1. Devontae Cacok
Cacok is an undersized Center but can play like a big while undertaking multiple tasks. The Center can supply more than average inside scoring, rebounding, and defense while being a team player. Devontae is a candidate as the Super-Player in the Dream11 Fantasy basketball scenario.
2. Cade Cunningham
Cade is the number 1 pick in this year’s draft and he has already shown why he is such a high pick. The Guard has tremendous shooting abilities and can torch it up from anywhere on the floor. His development will be interesting to watch and he is sure to get a ton of minutes in a team that is rebuilding. Cade can be chosen as a Pro-Player in the Dream 11 Fantasy scenario.
3. Vic Law
Law is a SF who plays well off the ball. Law can stretch the floor with his long range bombs and he is also a terrific rebounder.
4. Killian Hayes
Hayes is in his sophomore year and Pistons took him at number 7 last year. Although he struggled to shoot in his rookie year at about 35%, the 20-year-old is still polishing his game and has the ability to be a great distributor and all-around player in the Association.
5. Mac McClung
Mac’s hops and ability to get to the line earned him an NBA contract with a powerhouse like the Lakers. Although he is still figuring out his role and position in the league, his athleticism can make a superb cut-to-the-rim type of player.
