Suns’ Jalen Smith named to All-Summer League First Team
Phoenix Suns 2020 first-round pick Jalen Smith was named All-Summer League First Team, after an impressive couple of weeks in Las Vegas.
The No. 10 overall pick from a year ago recorded four straight double-doubles in competition, averaging 16.3 points and 12.5 rebounds.
The Suns went 2-3 during Summer League play that featured wins over the Denver Nuggets and Portland Trail Blazers. Smith was instrumental in those victories, scoring 21 points and grabbing 11 boards against the Nuggets and having 17 and 12 against the Blazers.
