NBA Summer League; put some Dejean-Jones on it.

BDJ balled Monday
Bryce Dejean-Jones (8-12 FG, 4-7 3-pt., 6-7 FT) was the most efficient player on a winning team across eight games played Monday (July 13, 2015) at the NBA Las Vegas Summer League. Dejean-Jones scored 26 points in 25 minutes. He added three rebounds, and two steals in the New Orleans Pelicans 89-83 win over the Brooklyn Nets. The 6'6" wing played his college ball at USC, UNLV, AND Iowa State. Dejean-Jones was the 2010 California High School Player of the Year but his NCAA career was not as smooth, bouncing from university to university.
