Josh Akognon trying to make it at summer league
Josh Akognon, a training-camp cut who returned to Dallas on a 10-day contract at the end of last season, is out to prove he belongs through his performance in the summer league.
So far, so good.
Akognon scored a game-high 24 points in the team’s 76-73 win Saturday against the Sacramento Kings. Whether the team was down 14 points or making its final push, Akgonon was consistent, going 8-of-14 from the field and 3-of-6 from 3-point range.
“I don’t want to sound obnoxious, but I felt like there were a couple of shots that I could have made and things I could have done better,” Akognon said. “We fell back so far, and a sense of urgency kicked in for us. For me, my immediate thing goes to scoring to get us back in the game.”
