    Kelan Martin was the high scorer and player of the game for the Timberwolves in NBA Summer League playoffs tonight in Vegas. His pro game has grown immensely since I saw him play in last year's summer league. Really hoping someone in the NBA gives him a look because he's played consistently well all week.

    Agree Jolie. Kelan looks as good if not better than anyone on his team. What impressed me the most is his ball handling and athleticism.

    23 points in only 20 minutes! That's hard to go unnoticed.

    Great job Kelan. Keep making us proud!

    Do the Pacers have a two-way contract available?

    He's rebounding really well, too.

    Don’t mean this to sound selfish or anything but his success in summer league and hopefully soon to be NBA would help in recruiting. Just another name beside Hayward and Mack in the league.

    If Max Strus can get a two way contract it should be a matter of time for Kelan.

    Let's see how long it takes the announcers to say his name right too. Geez. Lol

    Kelsen is leading the Timberwolves in scoring at 13.2 points per game yet doesn’t start.

    You guys do understand that he’s making more in Europe, not being on a two-way? My guy needs a Carsen Edwards type of deal.

    Yes, you're right. It depends on what his goals are, I guess, but I'd also love to see him get that kind of a deal.

    Competition is better in the top 3-5 Euro Leagues compared to the G-League. I would say most NBA GM’s value those leagues over its own feeder system.

    That foul at the end of the third was complete garbage against Kelan

    That really depends on the team. Quite a few have effectively taken advantage of being able to run the same offensive and defensive sets with their G League teams as they do with the NBA club.

    Pay is better in Europe, but it's not really much of a path back to the league for many players. There are certainly some who have done it, though.

    Poor Brandon Miller. Fran Fraschilla continually stating that Brad recruited Kelan.

    I honestly don’t get why KM wasn’t already signed to play on an NBA team. He was certainly as good as anyone that played on the Wolves summer team. His ball handling skills and ability to get to the rim were superb as was his floater and jumper from three. He rebounded well.
