How Good an Indicator is Summer League Play?

The Nets summer league team won only two of five games, but the three players they hoped would do well did. Marcus Williams led the league in assists, Josh Boone led in rebounds and Antoine Wright played well all around. What kind of an indicator is that? ESPN suggests summer league performances can be hit-or-miss. Tayshaun Prince, Carlos Boozer, T.J. Ford and Andrew Bogut all excelled on the summer league stage, but so did Jermaine Jackson, Omar Cook, Lonny Baxter and yes, Zoran Planinic.
