NBA Summer League play began on Sunday, with the Orlando Summer League getting underway (it runs through July 12th, while the Las Vegas Summer League is from July 12-22). It was the first chance for many rookies to get their first NBA (ish) action.
One such player was the Nets' Mason Plumlee, who was selected 22nd by Brooklyn in the June draft. While the Nets lost their Summer League opener 76-

The NBA offseason is still in its infancy but that doesn't mean the NBA takes a break.
The 2013 Orlando Summer League is underway and already it is giving fans a glimpse at the future of the NBA and not to mention, some juicy highlights to hold fans over until the start of the 2013-14 NBA season.
Brooklyn rookie Mason Plumlee gave Nets and NBA fans a taste of what might...
The New Jersey Nets’ first-round pick, Duke’s Mason Plumlee, showed off the impressive athleticism during Sunday’s NBA Summer League against the Detroit Pistons. Plumlee went spin-o-rama and then posterizing finish on fellow first-rounder, Detroit’s Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. The 22th pick in last month’s draft should some playing next season as the fourth big (Lopez, Garnett, Blache.)
As we near the end of the first day of the Orlando Summer League, we were sadly lacking one incredible slam dunk until the start of the Detroit Pistons/Brooklyn Nets game. Watch as Mason Plumlee of the Nets throws down an impressive spinning poster dunk on Pistons rookie Kentavious Caldwell-Pope:
Recent Nets draft pick Mason Plumlee did not waste any time in showing why Brooklyn took him with the 22nd overall pick.
In the team’s first summer league game, the Duke alum made a bid for his first SportsCenter “Top 10” dunk as a pro. With six minutes remaining in the first quarter against the Pistons, Plumlee spun around fellow rookie Peyton Siva and threw down a vicious...
YouTube First-year Nets head coach Jason Kidd has never run a team from an NBA or even college bench. On Sunday, he made his coaching debut during an NBA Summer League game. The guy who distributed 12,091 assists over his NBA career distributed nearly as many (eight) fist bumps prior to Sunday’s tilt. The most meaningful stat during the Pistons 76-67 win over New Jersey (it’s...
Jason Kidd is wasting no time getting in good with his Brooklyn Nets players. He gave some nice compliments to Deron Williams.
Jason Kidd made his NBA head coaching debut for the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday afternoon during a summer league game against the Pistons. It didn’t go as smooth as J-Kidd likely hoped – not only did the Nets lose 76-67, but Kidd also got his first technical foul as a coach during the game for wandering too far out of the coaching box. Looks like Kidd has got quite a bit to learn...
There has been a ton of speculation this off-season as to who the Brooklyn Nets will bring in as Deron Williams’ backup. Names like Sebastian Telfair, Shaun Livingston, John Lucas, Jamaal Tinsley and Chauncey Billups have been rumored to be on the Nets list. However, the Nets have another point guard on their roster right [...]

Jason Kidd made his NBA head coaching debut for the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday afternoon during a summer league game against the Pistons.
The Nets lost 76-67, and Kidd got his first ever technical foul, but not for arguing a call or anything like that. Kidd got the technical for wandering too far outside of the coaching box.
Heat columnist Ethan Skolnick said that Kidd chalked it...
Though I wasn't a fan of Danny Ainge's KG-Pierce trade, I was pleased with his last minute alteration to acquire 24 year-old Marshon Brooks. The 6'5" shooting guard has a skillset that some have even called Kobe-esque (not saying he's the next Kobe), and his 7'1" wingspan allows him to get his shot off even when heavily guarded. He only played 13 minutes...
As expected the Heat have to be favorites for the NBA title next year, but the Pierce and KG to Brooklyn trade does make things interesting. A starting five of Brook Lopez, KG, Pierce, Joe Johnson and Deron Williams is one of the best starting five in the league and could give the Heat a run for their money. They presumably would pose serious match-up problems with this big lineup...
