The showdown between the top two picks was off with Paolo Banchero sitting the OKC-Magic game out.

Magic reported Banchero's Summer League is over as they simply want other players to get opportunities now.

Chet Holmgren used a chance to shine and scored a game-high 16 points to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to an 84-81 (31-14, 16-24, 21-22, 16-21) victory over the Orlando Magic in the Las Vegas Summer League.
