Fresh off the press: you won’t be watching Festus Ezeli during this Summer League.
The 2012 first round draft pick who missed all of last season recovering from a right knee surgery will miss Summer League action and will more than likely make his debut during the preseason. The reason is “precautionary”, due to a right shin inflammation.
We will get to see if players like Nemanja Nedovic can keep their spot on the Warriors. Up-and-coming player and former Ohio State point guard Aaron Craft is already hard at work making a case to be kept with the team.
The elephant in the room, Steve Kerr, will be active coaching the Summer League team. My advice would be not to overreact to Kerr’s coaching in this summer league. Odds are he will not be coaching most of these players on this roster, and these players are not finely tuned.
Steve Kerr said on coaching in the Summer League, “I would like to get my feel of the game, and get my feet wet. I have some ideas”.
The Warriors were 7-0 last summer season and won the summer tournament. They will begin play on July 11 when they take on the Charlotte Hornets.
