I hope he is okay.
Also Samb >> Amir.
Stuckey had been invited to scrimmage with Team USA. I had got that information from 1130 WDFN some time last week. So I believe that this is why he was not available for the rest of summer league.

Apparently, defensively he was a monster and was trapping very well. He kinda sounded like the Ben Wallace before 2005.
Right now, I feel safe to say Samb could be growing and progressing faster
than Amir did at that stage of career, but when Amir was in the D-league, he was dominant… Samb is progressing well in summer play, but this season over all will be a better measuring stick to see his progress and if he is able to really have a major role with our team.
