    I'm interested to see how Trent follows up his explosive Game #2. Can't be that hot all the time but consistently positive efforts is what I want to see.

    I what see Trent going back up the overall game not just scoring but the other areas of the game. I want see Simons going to fill up other categories like assist and rebounds and steals. I know he can shoot but he needs be more rounded I just haven't seen that yet. Little just continue to improve from last game. Hoard has been solid but to see he keep it up.

    Trent is going to draw a lot of attention from the defense. That would be a good time to work on his passing mindset.

    Super impressive start on both ends.

    Like the sets Moran has put in too.

    It can be hard to get assists in summer league . One of the media people there talked with Ant and he said several of the guys don’t know the plays they’re trying to run.

    Simons' shot looks good but would love to see him mix it up with some passing and dribble drives. I've yet to see that playmaking from him.

    Simons is an assassin.

    That side step three that Simons shoots.....clearly got it from Dame. I don't know anyone else that uses that shot more than Dame.
