The up-and-comers of the NBA will once again convene in the desert this year as the Summer League makes its return to Las Vegas this August.
The league officially announced on Wednesday that the exhibition series will take place from August 8th thorugh 17th. The competition was canceled last year due to the pandemic, which delayed the draft to November, just one month before the 2020-21 regular season began.
All 30 teams usually send rosters made up of rookies, sophomores and G League players looking to prove themselves before training camp begins. It is currently unclear if the summer leagues in Orlando, Salt Lake City, and Sacramento will resume their respective tournaments.
