Surprises? Last season Jerrelle Benimon surprised coaches, media, and fans with his play. He showed a knack for rebounding and was a key member to the summer league team. Could Alen Omic be the surprise? Keep an eye on Ryan Broekhoff and even on Jamaal Franklin. Franklin has a non-guaranteed deal with Denver, and will have to play well to stick with the team. He may also get a camp invite, so Vegas may not be make or break for him.

Summer syllabus: Five teams to watch
Valparaiso: The Crusaders were a trendy pick to upset No. 4 seed Maryland in the opening round of the NCAA tournament last season. They fell by three points, but that game offered a glimpse at a quality team that most college hoops fans hadn’t watched during the regular season. Valpo loses only one starter from that group, senior forward and Horizon League defensive player of the year Vashil Fernandez. Coach Bryce Drew should have his team on track for another conference title and NCAA tournament berth provided the Crusaders’ defense doesn’t falter without Fernandez’s rim protection.
