Cole Aldrich is playing in his fifth NBA Summer League. After helping defend the paint on the New York Knicks first defensive possession Aldrich took position in the low-block and scored two points, he’s an established veteran among those here in Las Vegas.

In five seasons Aldrich has played in only 132 games, he’s only started in two of them. But, in Las Vegas, Aldrich knows his way around the floor as the game is slowed down from the pace he’s usually overwhelmed by.

He looks comfortable, certainly, blocking shots and passing out of the high-post with incredible ease. Vegas is a place where Alridge can confidently play his game, and that’s exactly what he’s doing.
