The notable players on this roster are Jaylen Martin and Trevor Keels.

During the 2022-23 season for the Overtime Elite, Martin averaged 14.0 points per game and 5.9 rebounds. Martin, who's athletic and a reliable catch-and-shoot ability, is listed as 6' 6" at the guard position.

Selected 42nd overall in the 2022 draft, Trevor Keels has the opportunity to make a good impression in Las Vegas for a shot at a roster spot. With the Westchester G-League team last season, Keels averaged 13.9 ppg (48.2% shooting, including 35.5% from 3-point range).

Other players on the roster to watch out for will be Race Thompson and David Shriver. Thompson, who has played six seasons for the Indiana Hoosiers, signed a contract to be part of the Summer League roster. Last season, Thompson averaged 8.4 ppg (49.2% shooting, including 27.9% from the 3-point range) and 5.2 rpg.

David Shriver, is a 6' 6" forward from the VCU Rams, who averaged 6.5 ppg (40.2% shooting, including 40.3% from the 3-point range). The obvious standout to his game is the shooting efficiency, especially with his 3-pointers.

New York Knicks trade Obi Toppin to Indiana Pacers for two future second-round picks

Last season, Obi Toppin averaged 7.4 ppg (44.6% shooting, including 34.4% from the 3-point range) and 2.8 rpg.

He's coming off his best season in shooting from the 3-point range despite averaging fewer points. In the 2021-22 season, Toppin averaged 9.0 ppg (53.1% shooting, including 30.8% from the 3-point range).

Despite being a reliable presence off the bench last season, New York trading him to the Pacers. In exchange, they got two future second-round picks, as reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

ESPN's Stephen A. Smith was divisive with the recent trade done by New York, saying on ESPN's "NBA Today."

"I understand why they’re doing it," Smith said. "I mean, you talk about two second-round picks, just maybe Tom Thibodeau found a way to play him a bit more.
"They would have gotten more than two second-round picks. I think that he has a lot of capabilities, and it would have been nice to see him utilized more in New York City."

It will be interesting what the Knicks do with their two future second-round picks.
