NBA Summer League is back! The popular event was canceled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic but returns this week in Las Vegas.
The summer circuit, which features all 30 NBA teams, begins Aug. 8 and runs through Aug. 17. It takes place at the Thomas and Mack Center and the neighboring Cox Pavilion near the UNLV campus. A total of 75 games will be played, with each team guaranteed at least five. The full schedule of the event can be found here.
Summer League is a prime opportunity for players young and old to develop, showcase their skills and/or land a new job. NBA and international scouts will be in attendance.
