Vesely breaks through as a Center. Day five NBA Las Vegas Summer League report.

Vesely as a Center makes some sense
Jan Vesely had a breakout performance playing the center position for the Washington Wizards Tuesday during play in the 2013 NBA Las Vegas Summer League. Still filling out his frame (age 23), Vesely is now 6'11", 240, and he used his combination of size and terrific athleticism to score 18 points (9-11 FG) in 22 minutes in the Wizards drubbing of Denver 97-69. Vesely was the most efficient player on a winning team during day five action on the UNLV campus. 

John Holland scored 12 points (5-9 FG), grabbed five boards, and dished three assists in 19 minutes for Minnesota. The summer Timberwolves took care of Miami 80-71. ...Toronto kept Sacramento without a win (0-3) by defeating the Kings 81-70. Jonas Valanciunas continued his fine summer league play with 18 points (6-12 FG, 8-8 FT) and 8 rebounds. ...Kent Bazemore led the Warriors to a 84-72 victory over the Bucks. Bazemore had 11 points, seven rebounds, and three assists in just 23 minutes. ...Chicago needed overtime to beat Portland 80-78. In the loss, Thomas Robinson had 12 points and 18 rebounds. ...Phoenix remained unbeaten (3-0) with a 100-88 triumph over Memphis. P.J. Tucker scored 18 points (7-10 FG, 4-4 FT), and snatched five rebounds for the Suns. ...And finally, the D-League Select Team stayed perfect at 3-0, with a 82-75 win over Dallas. Kyle Weaver came off the bench to provide 15 points (4-8 FG, 6-7 FT), and four rebounds for the D Leaguers.
