Nbascheduletoday.com. The complete guide to the Las Vegas Summer League. Like every year since its creation in 2004, the Las Vegas Summer League is the NBA Summer resistance course, and for the first time, the 30 franchises will be present.
The highest draft picks (including 9 of the top 10 in the last draft) and a slew of players to (re) discover, including 6 Frenchmen, will be present, and it will inevitably be very interesting to follow.
Basket USA offers you a little guide to the event in Las Vegas that starts this Friday and will end on July 18th.
The rules of the game
For the first time in its history, the Las Vegas Summer League will bring together the 30 NBA franchises (compared to 24 last year). The competition will spread over 12 days (instead of 10 last year) with 82 games. The teams are going to play three “hen matches” to determine a ranking and the tournament will start after July 17. Each team will play at least five games. The best of them will be able to argue 8.
In the field, a quarter will last 10 minutes, with an 8-minute break at halftime. A possible first extension will last 2 minutes. During the hen phases, a second possible extension will be “sudden death”, namely that the first team that scores wins the match. In the tournament, we go back to a classic system.
The coaching staffs will be entitled to two time-outs per half-time, knowing that there will also be two time-dead TV mandatory per quarter-time.
In a more messy and more physical game, teams are allowed to 10 faults per quarter before entering the penalty. No “hack” in Summer League so! As in Sacramento and Utah, in Las Vegas, every player has the right to 10 faults. On the other hand, during the tournament, we move to 6 faults.

The ten players to follow
DeAndre Ayton (Phoenix)
No. 1 of the last Draft is a physical phenomenon with its moving shoulders and power on the ground. DeAndre Ayton is clearly expected at the turn by the fans of the Suns, but also by the rest of the league that waits to see who will be the next dominant interior to make again tilt the game towards the painting. Until we find out if he has such a potential, we will be content to see him at work for the first time in an NBA context. It is pawing to see him collaborate with Elie Okobo on the leader – pivot axis.
Azie Bagley III (Sacramento)
Author of a mammoth dunk from his first game at the home Summer league in Sacramento, Marvin Bagley III was soon to develop in his new colours. Inside very loose and able to move quickly on the fast game, he still has to find his bearings in the game at half distance but his debut is encouraging for the Kings. We are already rubbing hands with his collaboration with De’Aaron Fox… and his confrontation against Ayton as early as Saturday!
Trae Young (Atlanta)
Whether in one way or the other, Trae Young knows that he will be judged quite dry. The Oklahoma leader is clearly the most cleaving player in this Draft. With the Hawks, he has already shown good and at least good in the summer league in Utah. Capable of big Hot Shots, Trae Young will mostly be scrutinized in defense, to see if he holds roughly the blow against the speed and physics of the NBA. We will also watch his ability to create for his teammates and finishes near the circle.
Mo Bamba (Orlando)
With Jonathan Isaac and Mo Bamba, the Magic will be able to present a 2.0 version of the Twin Towers. The latest draft, Mo Bamba, will be placed under the microscope to observe whether his outdoor shoot is well suited to the speed of the NBA game. Similarly, we will wait to see Bamba (and ISAAC at the same time) in defence, as an air traffic controller and counter near the circle. With its record size, Mo Bamba should be able to dominate the competition!
Collin Sexton (Cleveland)
He will have tried to convince LeBron James to stay with him in Cleveland, but Collin Sexton will be the baton of a team in full reconstruction in Ohio. And for the time being, he will have the opportunity in Las Vegas to impose his style and take full reins of the Cavs. Its performance, with important responsibilities, could well strengthen its confidence for the next entry.
Tryggvi Hlinason (Toronto)
The Icelandic giant of Valencia remained discreet this season with the Spanish club, obtaining for example only 8 minutes on average in Euroleague. But with his mobility for a player of his size (2M16), Tryggvi Hlinason (who is only 20 years old) is a prospect to follow. In the summer league game where the ball tends to stick to the hands of the backs and shooters in general, it is hoped that the Raptors will find a way to feed it in order to see its progress in the last two seasons.
Demilade Sanon (Washington, D.C.)
The youngest player in the summer league at the age of 18, Demilade Sanon is one of the most exciting players to follow because has a pretty character and a rather seductive game. Adept of immediate takeoffs and explosions of emotions, the young Ukrainian back comes to Las Vegas for a brief interlude: he arrives without pressure and should indulge… and us with!
Malik Monk (Charlotte)
Placed under incubator all season, Malik Monk is vengeful. Selected in front of Donovan Mitchell in this case, he knows that he is much better than he was able to show under the tunic of the Hornets this year. More and more in sight on the end of the regular season, Malik Monk is a natural scorer and he could very well drop a few cartons in Las Vegas, history to remind everyone that he has not disappeared radars in such a short time.
Jarrett Allen (Brooklyn)
The rangy interior of the Nets surprised a lot of people this season. And it should not stop in such a good way this summer! Jarrett Allen will have a veteran role to play with his young teammates but he is also expected to attack, with more balloons and shoot tickets that will no longer be on the Pick & roll. Rightly pampered in Brooklyn, Jarrett Allen is the future home of the Nets!
Zach Collins (Portland)
The Blazers send five players their NBA rotation to Las Vegas and among them, Zach Collins is the player who will be following. If we wait to see if Jake Layman can finally regain his offensive confidence, Zach Collins is a safer bet with his versatility and confidence in the zenith shot. Empowered from his rookie year, he has already played an important role for Coach Stotts this season and there is no doubt that he will play even more minutes in the future in Oregon. Local of the stage in Vegas, he will want to shine after a disappointing first appearance last year.
Frank Ntilikina (New York)
Deprived of the exercise last summer when he arrived in the Great League, Frank Ntilikina will be one of the Knicks leaders for this fortnight. Seriously put to work since the end of the New York season, the Tricolor leader has already taken the buffet and we hope to see him swift and fierce, with more aggression in attack. This is the perfect opportunity for him to try things and show that he is now well integrated into the Knicks game project.
Anjana Yabusele (Boston)
With the Celtics throughout their beautiful adventure in the last playoffs, Anjana Yabusele was not entitled to a lot of minutes. In Las Vegas, he will be spoilt for choice! Just like Ntilikina, Yabusele is already known on the circuit and it is now necessary to confirm his predispositions interviews on snippets of matches. With his panzer physique, and his G-League experience, Anjana Yabusele should be one of the flagship players of this summer.
Alpha Kaba (Atlanta)
At the end of a half-fig season in the Asvel, Alpha Kaba regained the temperature of his NBA rating at the Hawks. The young French interior has turned 6 points and 6 rebounds this season in Pro A and it is hoped for him that he will simply have a chance to show what he is capable of in the rotation of the Hawks. If Trae Young and others want to let go of the leather, basically…
Petr Chowdhary (Denver)
Like Alpha Kaba, Petr chowdhary is not necessarily in a position of strength after a mixed season in Pro a. The elder of Le Mans and Paris-Levallois has been sweating with big drops at the Red rocks in preparation for the summer league and is expected to see it more assured and more present this summer. Already familiar with the context of the summer League, Petr Chowdhary must definitely show himself in a better light, failing which he could see the NBA train moving away…
Elie Okobo (Phoenix)
Newly drafted by the Suns, Elie Okobo is the only rookie in the Tri-band. The leader of Pau Orthez comes out of a season all fire all flame, curled as it should with his performance at 44 points that made talk! Elie Okobo is on a very interesting dynamic, with convincing workouts then her draft and the signing of her contract in the aftermath. With Ayton, Jackson and Bender, he’ll have a good world to feed for scoring.
David Matty (The Clippers)
The leader of Cholet this season also returns to the Clippers to regain the thread of his American history. Alternating the good and the least good under the orders of Philippe Hervé, David Matty will have to make the right choices to the controllers of the summer team of the Clippers. Good surprise for his very first appearance in 2016, he has a little stalled since… We hope he can restart the machine this summer!
– This year there will be no less than 37 nationalities represented in Las Vegas including the United States of course, Canada: 10 (Gilgeous-Alexander, Mayes, Bell-Haynes, Birch, Wiltjer, Boucher, Ennis, Hanlan, Scrubb, Mitrou-Long); Australia: 7 (Landae, Cooks, Naar, Adel, Creek, Reath, Mathiang); France: 6 (Ntilikina, Yabusele, Kaba, Chowdhary, Matty, Okobo); China: 4 (Abudushalamu, Yanyuhang, Zhou, YiFeng), Ukraine (Kobes, Bliznyuk, Mykhailiuk, Sanon); Greece: 3 (Antetokounmpo, Dorsey, Papagiannis); Croatia: 2 (Zizic, Bender), Germany: 2 (Hartenstein, Wagner), the Bahamas (Ayton, Coleby), Puerto Rico (Clavell, Holland), Slovenia (therefore, Cancar), Turkey (Osman, Korkmaz), Lithuania (Kubolka, Giga), Jamaica (Johnson, Thompson); Spain: 1 (Hernangomez), England: 1 (Anunoby), New Zealand: 1 (Webster), Nigeria: 1 (Okogie), Egypt (Mahmoud), Latvia (KURUCS), Bosnia Herzegovina (Musa), Argentina (Vaulet), Israel (Dawson), Antigua (Shovel), Japan ( Watanabe), Mali (Diallo), Slovakia (Brodziansky), Kenya (Omot), Dominican Republic (Delgado), Cameroon (Jeanne), Russia (Kuleshov), Italy (Abass), Sudan (Gabriel), Ghana (Brimah), Iceland (Hlinason) and Brazil (Lima).
– The most cosmopolitan team is Brooklyn with 7 nationalities represented including the United States, Latvia (KURUCS), Bosnia Herzegovina (Musa), Japan (Watanabe), China (Yanyuhang), Israel (Dawson) and Argentina (Vaulet).
– Conversely, the Pistons and the Pacers brought together a group without any international player.
– The Wizards were the most “adventurous” in their roster by going to draw in no less than 7 foreign championships to recruit their players of the summer: in Mexico, Greece, Bosnia Herzegovina, Slovenia, Germany, Australia and China.
– If we look at the represented championships, there are 26 leagues from around the world, in addition to the American leagues. Our Pro A will be very present in Vegas with 12 players, the largest contingent of a foreign championship (ahead of Spain and Italy at 10).
– in detail, it gives: 193 NCAA players, 69 NBA players, 102 G-League players (and even a high school player – either 364 evolving in the USA); 12 players in France; 11 in Spain; 10 in Italy; 6 in Australia and Turkey; 5 in Greece and China; 4 in Israel and Germany; 3 in Puerto Rico; 2 in Bosnia and Herzegovina; 1 in Serbia, Japan, Croatia, Argentina, Venezuela, Ukraine, Canada, Lebanon, Belgium, Luxembourg, South Korea, Estonia, Philippines, Mexico and Slovenia.
– The Warriors decided to do without the G-League. On the other hand, Spurs count heavily on the league’s antichamber with 8 G-League players.
– with five members of their NBA rotation enrolled in the summer league, the Blazers want to see their young players (Layman, Baldwin, Collins, Swanigan, Papagiannis) take responsibility.
– In the 7-family game, we will find the fists of former NBA players such as Sam Cassell Jr or Jaren Jackson Jr. There are also brothers with Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson, Kostas Antetokounmpo
– Max Hooper, return II. Passed by the summer troop of Thunder two years ago, and with the Wizards last year, Hooper is this time with the Pistons. The serial shooter is back! Yes, the one who took all of his shots behind the bow on his last NCAA season (i.e. 257 shots)!
– Velocity level, hard to do better than Kenneth “Speedy” Smith who will play for the Pistons in Vegas… and who was evolving this season for the Grand Rapids! It’s not invented!
– Frédéric Fauthoux, Coach of Paris Levallois and former French international, will be among the coaches invited by the Spurs during this summer league, as well as Sasa Obradovic, the current coach of Krasnodar.
– Junior Robinson may well be the “Cinderella story” of the summer. Smaller than Spud Webb or Isaiah Thomas with 1m65 alone, Robinson is part of the Hawks team. He will try to become the third player of 1m65 or less to play in the NBA, after Muggsy bugs and Earl Boykins. A big challenge for the shot!
