LAS VEGAS — Former Virginia guard Kyle Guy scored 21 points on 6-of-11 shooting in the Sacramento Kings’ 94-77 win over China, as NBA Summer League play resumed in Las Vegas one day after an earthquake in the area forced two games to be shortened and another to be canceled.
Meanwhile, the Phoenix Suns said that Guy’s former teammate Ty Jerome, a first-round pick of the Suns, will not be playing in the Summer League due to his short time with the team. Jerome was actually selected by the Boston Celtics, but that pick was dealt to Phoenix in a pre-draft deal that did not become official until Saturday. The Suns’ first game on Friday with Denver was canceled due to the earthquke. They played again late Sunday against the New York Knicks.
In other games involving players from area colleges:
- Justin Robinson, who signed as a free agent with the Washington Wizards, scored 15 points in their 84-79 win over New Orleans, which played its first game of the summer without No. 1-overall pick Zion Williamson.
The Wizards were led by second-year player Troy Brown Jr., who scored 18 points and grabbed 15 rebounds.
Former UVa guard London Perrantes had six points and seven assists for New Orleans.
- Another Virginia Tech alum, Ahmed Hill, played both Saturday and Sunday. Hill, playing for the Brooklyn Nets, had six points in Saturday’s 96-92 loss to the Dallas Mavericks. He scored nine on Sunday as the Nets beat Croatia.
- Ex-Radford University star Javonte Green scored 12 points and grabbed five rebounds for the Boston Celtics in their 96-82 win over Philadelphia on Saturday. The Celtics will play again on Monday against Cleveland.
