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 Washington Wizards encounter Sacramento Kings to find out which team has more sway. More about WAS vs SAC 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. In this game, there is some Indian representation as Princepal Singh Bajwa, who is from Firozpur, Punjab can be potentially on display for the Kings. Bajwa plays for the NBA G League Ignite and this is big news for Indian fans. On the other hand, Cheick Diallo who has some NBA experience can also show his skills albeit he clears the healthy and safety protocols. 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.

Cheick Diallo (last match stats)
*Washington yet to play*
Chimezie Metu (last match stats)
1. Cheick Diallo
NBA Career: PPG: 5.3 RPG: 4.2
Diallo is an athletic Forward who can provide paint points and also take tough rebounds. He has played 4 years in the league which includes 3 seasons for the Pelicans. Cheick is an amazing open-court player and this is a great chance for him to earn another roster spot in the NBA. He is one of the candidates as the Super Player in the Dream11 Fantasy basketball scenario.
2. Chimezie Metu
Metu figured in the Kings lineup quite a bit last season and even had some impressive games. Metu is a dynamic athlete and can jump very very high, however, that is not all to his game as he also displays a deft shooting stroke. Chimezie can be highly effective in this game as he does have a decent NBA experience.
3. Corey Kispert
NCAAB 2020-21: PPG: 18.5 RPG: 5.0
Kispert gets buckets and he gets them from long range. He has a dead-eye shooting stroke and he can go on crazy shooting spurts at times. Corey was phenomenal as a college player for Gonzaga Bulldogs last season and the Wizards may have found a steal at number 15 in this year’s draft.
4. Davion Mitchell
Davion embodies the definition of a “do-it-all” guard. He has terrific court vision, he can drive to the rim and finish in traffic while displaying a superb shooting touch. Mitchell was selected as a number 9 pick in this year’s draft and looks like a perfect backcourt backup for De’Aaron Fox.
5. Mason Jones
NBA Regular Season 2020-21: PPG: 5.2
Jones split his season between the Sixers and Rockets last season showing a lot of promise. The lefty guard is a long-range bomber and can pile up points by going on shooting streaks.
6. Jahmi’us Ramsey
Ramsey is a highly talented guard who can run the floor and also displays an incredible shooting touch. He has a lot of potentials and can lock up a guard spot in the league long-term.
07. Louis King
08. Neemias Quetta
