The duo also led the way for the All-Summer League First Team after a strong showing in Las Vegas.

After successful showings at the MGM Resorts NBA Summer League, the Sacramento Kings’ Davion Mitchell and the Brooklyn Nets’ Cam Thomas have been named co-MVPs of the event.

Mitchell keyed Sacramento’s run to the Summer League championship, which they locked up on Tuesday by rolling past the Boston Celtics. He averaged 10.8 points, 1.4 rebounds and 5.8 assists in Summer League while shooting 42.3% overall and 47.1% on 3-pointers.

Thomas was the No. 1 scorer in Summer League (27.0 ppg) and helped Brooklyn to a 3-2 mark in the showcase event. He shot 42.3% overall and 36% on 3-pointers while also averaging 1.8 rpg and 2.0 apg for the Nets.

Mitchell and Thomas were also among the players named to the All-Summer League First Team, a group that includes Jalen Johnson (Atlanta Hawks), Trey Murphy III (New Orleans Pelicans), Payton Pritchard (Boston Celtics), Jalen Smith (Phoenix Suns) and Obi Toppin (New York Knicks).

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 Draft, Detroit’s Cade Cunningham, led the All-Summer League Second Team. Joining him on that list were No. 2 overall pick Jalen Green of the Houston Rockets as well as Paul Reed (Philadelphia 76ers), Patrick Williams (Chicago Bulls) and Luke Garza (Pistons). Both All-Summer League teams were selected by a panel of media.
