JD Davison Promising In Summer League Debut
JD Davison saw his first NBA minutes Saturday when the Boston Celtics took on the Miami Heat in the Las Vegas Summer League.
When the Celtics took University of Alabama guard JD Davison in the second round of the 2022 NBA Draft, they knew they were taking a raw athletic prospect with large potential, but one who also needed a lot of fine tuning.
Davison displayed a lot of that potential in a box-scores stuffing effort against the Heat. The young guard scored ten points, shooting three for eleven from the field including two for five from the three-point line. Davison also tacked on two points from the foul line.
The shooting numbers are nothing to gawk at, but what really impressed watching Davison's debut was his utility.
Davison secured six boards, and dished out six dimes to his teammates and defensively he nabbed two steals and blocked three shots.
Davison displayed a great feel for what was going on around him, dishing out several perfect passes giving his teammates easy scores. If Davison continues to grow his game in this direction, then his decision to leave college early and Boston's investment in him will both have paid off.
