Two former Oregon basketball players started their attempts of landing an NBA training camp roster spot with the opening of the NBA summer league in Las Vegas, NV Friday evening.
Former Oregon guard Garrett Sim scored 5 points in his first summer league game.
Guards Devoe Joseph and Garrett Sim made their debuts Friday for the Toronto Raptors (Joseph) and Golden State Warriors (Sim).
Joseph was a late addition to the Raptor summer league roster and was awarded a starting role. Joseph played just over 26 minutes and scored 11 points and grabbed three rebounds. He shot 4-of-7 from the field and 1-of-3 from three. He also added two assists and one block.
The Raptors lost their season opening game 93-81 to the Houston Rockets.
The Raptors started 2012 No. 8 overall pick Terrence Ross at small forward and Joseph at shooting guard.
Sim was a surprise addition to the Warriors summer league roster but found his way into the game late in a blow out game.
Sim played 5 minutes and scored 5 points on 1-of-2 shooting and 1-of-1 from three along with two free throws.
The Warriors beat the Los Angeles Lakers 90-50.
