With the Nets in rebuild mode and a ton of young players looking to make a mark in the NBA, Summer League has been a good time for fans to evaluate all the newbies.
Two days ago, the NBA released the SL schedule and the details go as followed:
The July 6 game is at 11:00 a.m. ET; July 7 at 1:00 p.m. and July 9 at 5:00 p.m. After that, they will play two "playoff" games which will be determined after seeding.
Caris LeVert and Jarrett Allen will both be on the roster. This will be LeVert’s second trip in the summer tournament. He missed it his rookie year while rehabbing from a foot injury. This will be Allen’s first trip as he too missed the summer tournament during his rookie season with a hip injury.
Also, 22-year-old Juan Pablo Vaulet, the 6’7” swingman taken in the 2015 Draft’s second round will be there, he told Julian Mozo, an Argentine sports writer. He said the Nets want to take a look at him and see what he can do against NBA talent. No official word from the Nets yet. The 15-man rosters are usually announced over July 4 weekend.
It’s the first time that all 30 NBA teams will play in a single Summer League tournament. In the past it’s been split predominantly between Orlando and Las Vegas. However, with the rise in ratings and fan interest in watching young prospects (and basketball in general), it’s become one of the hottest commodities of summer.
