Now that summer league is over the Mavs will turn their attention to finalizing their roster for training camp, which is just over two months away.
While it’s still too early to really forecast who exactly will fill out the entire 20-man roster come October — Dallas could always make more moves, including signing free agents and making trades — some names from the Summer League roster are worth taking a look at.
For starters, Ricky Ledo and Gal Mekel, both of whom performed well in Las Vegas, are under contract with the club and, barring additional roster moves during the rest of the summer, will both make the 15-man roster come November. Ledo averaged a team-high 15.4 points, 3.8 boards, and 4.4 assists — tied for seventh in the LVSL. He also hit 37 percent of his three-point attempts. Mekel, meanwhile, scored 11.5 points on 53 percent from the field and 40 percent from beyond the arc, adding 4.3 rebounds and three assists versus just 1.5 turnovers. Those are the types of numbers you expect to see from second-year players in the Summer League, and both looked clearly improved from last season.
