Las Vegas Summer league is over for Lauri Markkanen and Kaleb Tarczewski.

Their respective teams played their one (and only) consolation round game Friday, and neither former Wildcat saw the floor.

Markkanen sat out the Chicago Bulls’ finale with a toe contusion, while Tarczewski got another DNP-coaches decision for the Philadelphia 76ers.

Here are their final per-game stats in Las Vegas Summer League:

Markkanen (three games) — 14.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, 1.7 blocks, 32.8 minutes, 12-41 FG (29.3%), 6-25 3PT (24.0%), 12-13 FT (92.3%)

Tarczewski (two games) — 6.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.0 blocks, 10.0 minutes, 3-5 FG, 2-2 FT

Third round of playoffs takes places Saturday
