Las Vegas Summer League is back in the mix 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. In this game, the Sacramento Kings will clash against Memphis Grizzlies to find out which team has more sway. More about SAC vs MEM Dream 11 will be given below.
The Summer League is unpredictable machinery. There are aces who get rested after going off for big nights in previous games. Rookies who are picked as one of the integral members of them can train and get a mild taste of what the real deal in the NBA looks like. For the Kings, Chezmie Metu may also feature in the game and as a fourth-year player, this will be a huge year for him after receiving decent playing time last year. Here, Alex Antetokounmpo, brother of the recent champion Giannis will also be on display. Both teams are full of overseas players and youngsters looking to earn a deal with some NBA Franchise, however, both also have players who have received significant playing time as young players last season.
Match Timing: 14 August, @ 06:30 AM
Venue: Cox Pavilion, Las Vegas

Chimezie Metu (last match stats)
Desmond Bane (last match stats)
1. John Konchar
Konchar is a versatile Shooting Guard. He can finish inside using either hand, shoot from long range, and can also hit floaters and runners. John is also a superb rebounder and more than average playmaker thus making him an all-around talent. Konchar is one of the candidates as the Super Player in the Dream11 Fantasy basketball scenario.
2. Chimezie Metu
Chimezie made his way into the Kings rotation last season and showed flashes of brilliance. Metu has a rich toolkit in terms of scoring, where he can shoot the long bombs and also make crispy layups. The Forward is also well-adept at rebounding the ball and leaves it all out on the floor with his multifaceted game.
3. Desmond Bane
Bane has a scorer’s mentality and he need not prove if he belongs to the league or not. Desmond has more than one or two ways to kill a defense and can display combo moves after combo moves. Bane is a natural scorer and it is no surprise that he is leading the Grizzlies charge in the Summer League.
4. Davion Mitchell
Kings selected Mitchell as the number 9 pick with high hopes and he has shown why he was a high selection in the draft. He is a dynamic guard who shows a lot of athleticism on both ends of the floor. What sets him apart from many PGs in the draft is his court vision and the ability to make the right play. Davion can be developed as a solid backup for either De’Aaron Fox or Tyrese Haliburton.
5. Xavier Tillman
As a rookie, Tillman received significant playing time with the Grizzlies and earned a regular spot. He displayed intelligence on the scoring and rebounding end and the experience at a professional level helped him make the most of his opportunities during his young career. Can Xavier carve out a substantial pathway in the highly competitive NBA?
6. Louis King
King was able to land a two-way contract last season with Sacramento and he has shown why he was able to do. The Forward is a terrific off-the-ball player and can create spacing to knock down high-quality jumpers.

08. Sean McDermott
