Utah Summer League and Orlando Summer League came to a close Thursday and it was another quiet day for the former Arizona Wildcats participating.

The Dallas Mavericks were crowned champions of Orlando Summer League, but Brandon Ashley picked up his second straight ‘DNP’.

Gabe York sat out, too, as the Charlotte Hornets beat the Orlando Magic in their Summer League finale.

Ashley averaged 8.5 points and 5.5 rebounds in two games with the Mavericks. York averaged 3.3 points per game in three appearances with Charlotte.

York will now head west to play the Los Angeles Lakers in Las Vegas Summer League.

Kaleb Tarczewski and Kadeem Allen wrapped up their stints in Utah Summer League on Thursday.

Tarczewski started for the Sixers and had four points, one rebound, and three turnovers in 10 minutes. Allen had four points (4-4 FT), two rebounds, two assists, three steals, and two turnovers in 18 minutes.

In three games, Tarczewski averaged 2.3 points and 3.0 rebounds in Utah. Allen averaged 2.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 1.0 steals, while shooting just 1-7 from the field.

Like York, Tarczewski will be heading to Las Vegas, only he will be suiting up for the New Orleans Pelicans in Las Vegas Summer League.
