Dwayne Bacon led Charlotte's Summer League squad with 28 points on Saturday, going 11-of-27 from the field with five rebounds, two assists and a steal in 31 minutes.
Bacon had drawn praise from Steve Clifford (the term "future starter" was used) but unfortunately he's in Orlando now. There's no telling what James Borrego will do with Bacon, who seems likely to settle into a reserve role barring a transaction that shakes up Charlotte's wing group. The lack of non-scoring stats tonight was a bit of a bummer but it was good to see him take on a big role. Rookie Miles Bridges went an ugly 5-for-20 from the floor but finished with 18 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, four steals, a block and a 3-pointer.
