Tony Mitchell will be in action with the Detroit Pistons summer league team again today.
Detroit plays the Miami Heat at noon CST. Here’s a link to today’s games on NBA.com
Mitchell is averaging 5.3 points and 6.3 rebounds a game. He didn’t start or play a whole lot in the Pistons last game. We will see if he gets more of an opportunity today.
I will likely post some thoughts on UNT’s new look roster later in the day. I ran through the basic who’s who following an overhaul of nearly the entire roster yesterday if one looks a litter further down on the blog.
On the football front, we are getting closer to the start of fall practice.
That’s another spot where it’s becoming clearer who UNT is going to have available this year.
We mentioned yesterday that offensive lineman Boone Feldt gave up football over the summer.
One guy UNT will have back and available is Roderick Lancaster:
Just left doc and I'm cleared to play this season..it's been a long road to recovery this season

Lancaster was a pretty highly regarded recruit heading into last season. Rivals.com rated him as a three-star prospect. He suffered a pretty major knee injury last summer and missed his freshman year.
UNT struggled at wide receiver in 2012 and is hoping to rebound this season. Those hopes are based largely on guys like Texas transfer Darius Terrell and freshman Darin Kidsy, but it certainly won’t hurt to have one of the top signees from UNT’s 2012 class available.
And finally, the Bronko Nagurski Trophy Watch List came out today. Georgia and Tulsa are among the teams on UNT’s schedule this year who had players among the 81 who were nominated.
UNT didn’t have a player named to the list.
