It's right around the corner! I'll update original post with a roster once one is released. So far we've heard that Guerschon Yabusele will be making his debut along with all of our other rookie draft picks (Brown, Jackson, Bentil, and Nader) while Ante Zizic isn't expected to come over. It all begins in Utah with 4th of July fireworks as Brown and Ben Simmons face off. Fun!! I'm jacked about my Vegas trip this year with the games at two venues and no time conflict in the Celtics games and Kris Dunn's with the Wolves. I'll be sure to post detailed updates of my days at Thomas & Mack and the Cox Pavilion.

UTAH (Head Coach: Micah Shrewsberry)


Monday, July 4: vs. Philadelphia 76ers (7 p.m. EST)
Tuesday, July 5: vs. Utah Jazz (7 p.m.)
Thursday, July 7: vs. San Antonio Spurs (9 p.m.)

LAS VEGAS (Head Coach: Jamie Young)

Saturday, July 9: vs. Chicago Bulls (6 p.m.)
Sunday, July 10: vs. Phoenix Suns (10:30 p.m.)
Tuesday, July 12: vs. Dallas Mavericks (6 p.m.)
July 13-18: tournament play


Ben Bentil
Jaylen Brown
RJ Hunter
Demetrius Jackson
Malcolm Miller (Holy Cross)
Jordan Mickey
Abdel Nader
JayVaughn Pinkston (Villanova)
Terry Rozier
Marcus Thornton (William & Mary)
Corey Walden (Eastern Kentucky)
James Young
Guerschon Yabusele
Mouphtaou Yarou (Villanova)

Nice -- in Vegas for the Bulls & Suns games! This trip keeps getting better.

I'm really excited to see Brown play.

Haven't seen a lot of Simmons but you can just tell how good he is, particularly when surrounded by people who can score. He is going to make the 76ers respectable (at least) next year0.

He's good. This is my first time really seeing him play and I'm impressed.

Who is Miller #48? He's going hard out there

Edit: Holy Cross, undrafted last year.

I'm getting irrationally excited about Rozier. He can run the point and is long enough to guard 1-3.

Brown reminds me of Jeff Green if Jeff Green didn't take benzos

Brown may literally be Butler if he can get to the line like that. He looks super raw but super confident.

Rozier taking Turners minutes is going to be nice I think

Brown pretty good tonight but nothing more, and the dude's gotta improve his free throws. Rozier (handle) and Hunter (3-pointers) look improved, which they need to be.

Simmons very impressive, and McConnell is fun to watch for Philly

There are lots of fouls in summer league games though...we'll have to see if that translates. Nice start, but only 2-7 from field. Be interested to see what those in attendance saw.
