2012 NBA Summer League schedule announced

The NBA season may be over but that doesn’t mean the action on the hardwood stops. The 2012 NBA Summer League is set to kick off next week as a record 24 team will be participating on the campus of UNLV.

The Summer League is where NBA draft picks and hopefuls get a chance to show their skills for the first time and hope to make the roster of an NBA team. It is an exciting event and should prove to be filled with fans considering last summer’s Summer League was canceled due to the NBA lockout.

This year, the Summer League will have 60 games in 10 days featuring teams with 13 of the top 14 draft picks in this year’s NBA Draft. The action begins on July 13, with the Atlanta Hawks playing the Washington Wizards. Other teams participating in opening day include the Charlotte Bobcats, Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers, Sacramento Kings and Toronto Raptors.

If you get a chance to head out to the event, you will completely enjoy it. You will be able to see fringe players who might make a team squad (such as Spurs’ Gary Neal) and front office executives milling about and surveying possible NBA talent. Also, it is not a surprise to see established NBA players make cameos in the stands.
