With a young nucleus, the Oklahoma City Thunder may be the most interesting team to watch in the NBA Summer League. One of those young players, 2021 first-rounder Tre Mann, came through with a highlight-reel play in Monday’s game against the Utah Jazz.

Utah’s Micah Potter made a poor pass while attempting to inbound a ball. Mann read Potter perfectly and intercepted the pass. He then moved toward the hoop, dribbling once before gathering and going up for the dunk.

Potter attempted to avenge his mistake by getting in Mann’s way. Instead, he was on the receiving end of what is one of the best in-game dunks in recent memory.

This monster throwdown got basketball fans buzzing.

Despite this sequence, Potter actually had a decent game while matched up against Oklahoma City’s Chet Holmgren. He even had a big dunk of his own later in the game.

Mann has been used primarily off of the bench in his two NBA seasons since getting selected No. 18 overall in 2021. He’s played 127 games, starting 31 of them. But he’s still developed nicely, averaging 9 points and 21 minutes a game in his NBA career.

Plays like this, though, definitely give Mann — — as well as Oklahoma City and its fans — something to get excited about.
