Whether it’s Lonzo Ball (and his dad) or Markelle Fultz, the NBA Summer League figures to feature some notable names.
The field was announced Thursday, and a record 24 teams will participate. All will represent NBA clubs, meaning there will be no NBA D-League Select Team this year.
The Summer League is scheduled for July 7 to 17 at the Thomas & Mack Center and Cox Pavilion, with the championship game capping the event. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday and will be available at NBATickets.com
Included in the field are teams with the top five picks in next month’s NBA, meaning Ball and Fultz are likely to participate. They are projected to be the top two picks.
If Ball plays in Las Vegas, he will draw a lot of attention, especially if he’s with the Los Angeles Lakers. His outspoken dad, LaVar, has said Lonzo will work out for only the Lakers, who have the second pick in the draft.
