Nevada basketball alum Cameron Oliver had a strong NBA summer league showing in Las Vegas the last two weeks.

Oliver, who finished last season with the Houston Rockets, making his NBA debut, played in all five games with the Warriors' summer league team. He averaged 7.2 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.4 blocks, 0.8 steals and 1.4 turnovers on 14.8 minutes per game. He made 14-of-27 shots (51.9 percent), including 0-of-3 from three. He made 8-of-9 free throws. The Warriors went 2-3 in the summer league.

Here were Oliver's game logs.

Game one: 16 minutes, nine points, six rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block, two turnovers (+2), 4-6/0-1/1-2

Game two: 16 minutes, five points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block (+1), 2-5/0-0/1-1

Game three: 13 minutes, 10 points, four rebounds, four blocks, (+3), 3-4/0-0/4-4

Game four: 11 minutes, four points, five rebounds, one steal, (-3), 1-4/0-1/2-2

Game five: 18 minutes, eight points, 10 rebounds, one steal, one block, five turnovers, (-3), 4-8/0-1/0-0

Oliver also had one of his trademark thunderous dunks during summer league, as seen below.

The 25-year-old Oliver will be in searching of an NBA training camp invitation after ending last year with the Rockets on a 10-day contract. In four games with Houston, Oliver averaged 10.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.0 blocks in 21.8 minutes per game. He made 57.6 percent of his shots, including 30.8 percent from three.

Nevada currently has two alums signed to NBA contracts, including JaVale McGee (Phoenix Suns) and Cody Martin (Charlotte Hornets). The Wolf Pack ended the last NBA season with five alums in the league.
