· James Blackmon Jr., Philadelphia (Utah and Vegas Summer Leagues): Blackmon Jr. didn’t play in Philadelphia’s first game in Utah, but it was a scheduled night off as the 76ers are only going to play nine or ten players per game. Expect Blackmon Jr. to make his summer league debut tonight on NBA TV at 9 p.m. ET as Philadelphia takes on Utah.
