Milton Doyle played 10 games with the Brooklyn Nets last season due to lingering guard injuries. Entering the Summer League, there was a lot of pressure on Doyle to play at a high level due to Brooklyn’s guard situation.
Throughout the Summer League, Doyle got the minutes he deserved. He averaged 22.0 minutes per game and played well. On the offensive end, he shot the ball well. He showed he can shoot from all-areas at a consistent level. One area of the floor Doyle did particularly well was driving.

He is a fearless driver who can finish through contact and end the play with three points. He was a little careless with the ball and had 12 turnovers in five games. That is not good for a player who is fighting for a roster spot.
On the defensive end, he was decent. He played consistent defense but would commonly lose focus late in games. Opposing guards would blow past Doyle often and move the ball too easily.
Overall, Doyle had a good Summer League compared to other Net guards. Now, in Doyle’s situation, he did not play at the level he needed to. Doyle was aiming to prove he deserves to be a third-string guard with Brooklyn.
His Brooklyn Nets future looks like it has come to an end. On Friday, Doyle had his rights renounced by the Brooklyn Nets and as of now looks like he will only be able to get another two-way contract.
Due to Brooklyn’s addition of Shabazz Napier, it is unlikely we will play with Brooklyn next season. As of now, Doyle should plan on being a part of the Long Island Nets or look into other opportunities within the NBA.
