Here's Who Won The Past Couple Of NBA Summer League MVPs

Here are the past couple of NBA summer league MVPs.

Lonzo Ball was named the MVP of the NBA's summer league on Monday.

The Los Angeles Lakers' star rookie point guard set a summer league record for assists, averaging more than 9 a game, while racking up a couple of triple-doubles.

Ball was certainly very impressive. Does being the MVP of the summer league forecast future success in the league, though?

It hasn't lately.

Glen Rice Jr. never stuck in the NBA. Tyus Jones averaged 3.5 points and 2.6 assists a game for Minnesota last season. Kyle Anderson played 14 minutes a game for San Antonio.

Damian Lillard was named the co-MVP of the league in 2012, though, so maybe Ball will follow in his footsteps and not the three players mentioned above.
