The NBA announced today that Phoenix Suns center Deandre Ayton has been named to the 2018 All-NBA Summer League Second Team, as selected by a media panel.

Ayton led the Suns with 14.5 points, 10.5 rebounds and 1.00 blocks per game while shooting 59.5 percent from the field as he was one of just seven players in Las Vegas to average a double-double. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft recorded at least 10 points and eight rebounds in each of his four games at Summer League, including two double-doubles.
