NBA Summer League play began on Sunday, with the Orlando Summer League getting underway (it runs through July 12th, while the Las Vegas Summer League is from July 12-22). It was the first chance for many rookies to get their first NBA (ish) action.

One such player was the Nets' Mason Plumlee, who was selected 22nd by Brooklyn in the June draft. While the Nets lost their Summer League opener 76-67, Plumlee put up 10 points and grabbed 14 boards, and threw down a monster dunk over Pistons rookie guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (the eighth pick in June's draft out of Georgia).

Here's video of Plumlee's posterizing dunk:
