LAS VEGAS — I pity Portland free agent Josh Scott, because he tried to come over and make the play, but instead, he’s going to be on the wrong end of a highlight shown everywhere for a few days. He ended up in the poster of the best dunk of the Vegas Summer League (so far).

Boston’s athletic Jaylen Brown — who has put plenty of NBA guys on posters — cut down the baseline, Ante Zizic made the good pass, and Brown went up then threw it down hard. Scott was in the poster but he was not stopping this.

I’d like to send my condolences to Scott’s family and friends.
