As 2021 NBA Summer League winds down, I'm joined by Ryan Knaus and Steve Alexander to discuss some fantasy takeaways from the top prospects we saw in action in Las Vegas, including Cade Cunningham, Jalen Green, Evan Mobley, Scottie Barnes and Jalen Suggs. We also look at some second-year players who played in Summer League and could make a fantasy impact — most notably Jaden McDaniels.

In the second half of this episode, we hear from Jared Johnson, who recently dove into historical Summer League data for big-name players (including Karl-Anthony Towns and Trae Young), and he tells us how much Summer League numbers matter — or don't — for fantasy.
