News, notes and personal observations on the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas: Some of you may remember Andrew Goudelock, the little guard who most recently played for the Los Angeles Lakers. Most of you probably wont. Either way, just know that Goudelock is looking really good averaging 28.5 points in his first two games (in 28 minutes per game, no less) with the Chicago Bulls. Goudelock is entering his third season. He spent portions of the first two with the Lakers, who drafted him in the second round (46th overall) in 2011. Hes 6-foot-3 (on a good day), and is more of a natural shooting guard than point. He often looks to score immediately upon receiving the ball, and can really fill it up once he gets it going. He may not make the Bulls, but hell be on a training camp roster somewhere this fall. Portland Trail Blazers guard C.J. McCollum (18.5 ppg), Sacramento Kings guard Ray McCallum (17.0), San Antonio Spurs forward Deshaun Thomas (17.0) and Los Angeles Clippers forward Reggie Bullock (16.0) have been some other pleasant surprises. Ive also particularly enjoyed watching second-year guys such as New Orleans Pelicans guards Austin Rivers (17.3 ppg) and Brian Roberts (13.7), and Atlanta Hawks forward Mike Scott (16.3). And keep an eye out for Stefhon Hannah, a 6-1 point guard for the D-League select squad. Hes averaging 18.5 points and a whopping 3.0 steals. Meanwhile, second-year guard Dion Waiters of the Cleveland Cavaliers looks to me like hes dogging it a little. Thats not a criticism as much of an observation. Waiters is averaging 14.0 points through three games, but shooting a shade under 30 percent from the field. I wouldnt worry about it, though. Summer ball doesnt seem to be his thing. But how about Toronto Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas? Granted, its just summer league, but hes scoring 21.0 points and ripping down 10.0 rebounds through two games. The Raptors have high hopes for Jonas V, and its easy to see why. One of my favorite guys this summer, guard Lester Hudson, is averaging 11.7 points for the Lakers. If theres one thing thats clear, it's that Hudson has learned the art of shot selection since his previous stint in the NBA (2011-12). Another favorite, Bulls forward Malcolm Thomas, has looked great on his way to 12.0 points and a Vegas-best 16.0 rebounds in two games. This guy is gonna stick somewhere. Back to the Cavs. When I told one GM I didnt recognize more than three names on the roster, he responded with all you need to know about summer league: Youre not gonna need to. Bulls second-year point guard Marquis Teague leads Vegas in assists at 7.0 -- making a member of the Bulls the leader in every major statistical category (points, rebounds, assists). For what its worth. Ive also been impressed with Minnesota Timberwolves guard Lorenzo Brown, picked in the second round last month (52nd overall). Brown has only averaged 8.0 points and 2.5 assists in his first two games, but hes big (6-5) and never forces anything, letting the game come to him. He could make the Wolves roster, especially now that Luke Ridnour has been traded (Oklahoma City Thunder). Neither of the Cavs first-round picks are playing, as forward and No. 1 overall selection Anthony Bennett is recovering from an injured shoulder, and swingman Sergey Karasev (19th overall) is playing in something called the World University Games. Of Karasevs performance, the website RealCavsFans.com tweeted: Only the second game Ive seen Karasev play, so this means little, but it looks like the Cavs have gotten a legit NBA player in the draft. Oh, and finally, I am watching the games from the comfort of my Akron, Ohio, couch -- not Las Vegas. As I tweeted already, I'm afraid if I went to Vegas I'd probably ignore the basketball and wake up to find Mike Tyson's tiger in my hotel room. Twitter: @SamAmicoFSO
