The San Antonio Spurs have seen a successful offseason so far and they continued that success with a win in their first NBA Summer League game on Friday night. These games are never really looked much into, but act as a glance at the possible future players a franchise can use during the regular season. Let's check out the five early standouts for the Spurs' Summer League team.

The coveted first-round draft pick for the Spurs didn't "wow" us by any means, but he was solid and that's just what they need him to be. In his first showing, Anderson finished with 6 points, 6 assists, and 4 rebounds. It's a small glimpse of his versatility and could promise to play a big role with time.

The former point guard out of the University of Missouri had quite a showing for the Spurs. He finished with 11 points in 24 minutes. His ability to get in the paint will allow him to create offense, but mostly for himself.

While playing for three teams in the past three years, Darius Morris has found himself with the Spurs this summer. And his 12 points in 15 minutes show he is trying to stay in San Antonio. Morris will be looking to find a spot behind Tony Parker at the point guard position, and he may have a chance with Patty Mills out.

Another point guard looking to fill the backup spot left by the Patty Mill's injury in Bryce Cotton. In his first showing, he put up 12 points on 3-of-4 shooting from the field. But it was his ability to get to the free-throw line that was most noticeable - a tool that the Spurs can definitely benefit from this season.

A player that was actually part of the championship roster decided to use his experience to lead the team in scoring with 14 points. It was clear that Daye is the offensive key for the Spurs' summer team, as he attempted 18 shots on the night. He is trying to prove his worth, since his part in last season was very minor.
