The Summer Pacers begin the tournament portion of the Vegas Summer League on Wednesday at against the Summer Hawks.

All eyes were on the Hawks’ rookie, Trae Young early in summer league when the Oklahoma sharp shooter missed the vast majority of his shots starting with games in the Utah Summer League. After not playing much on Sunday, Young fared well in his last outing on Tuesday, making 7 of 13 threes to finish with 24 points and helping the Hawks beat the Bulls, 101-93.

So, yeah, we’re here for the Aaron Holiday vs. Trae Young matchup tonight.

The Hawks have two other first round picks in Kevin Hueter (19th pick) who hasn’t played and Omari Spellman (30th pick) out of Villanova. Atlanta also has some local flavor with former IU guard Robert Johnson on the roster.

If the Pacers win, they will face Portland on Thursday at 10:30 pm ET (ESPN2). If they lose to Atlanta, the Pacers will wrap up play against the loser of Nets vs. Rockets on Friday at 4:00 pm ET (ESPNU).
