Magic-Thunder, Pistons-Blazers To Open Vegas Summer League
LAS VEGAS (AP) — NBA Summer League will start with a little Midnight Madness feel, at least in some of the country.
And if the Orlando Magic keep the No. 1 draft pick, then that player won’t wait long for his summer debut.
The league released the 75-game summer league schedule on Monday, with the first game in Las Vegas set to pit Orlando against Houston on July 7 at 10 p.m. Eastern. That game will be followed by a midnight Eastern tip-off between Portland and Detroit, with those two matchups the only ones on the Day 1 schedule.
The NBA today unveiled the game and broadcast schedules for NBA 2K23 Summer League 2022, which will take place July 7-17 in Las Vegas. All 30 NBA teams will play 5 games and compete for the championship.
