The NBA announced the schedule for the 2015 Las Vegas Summer League. The festivities will kick off on July 10 and end on July 20. In the first day of action the Lakers and Timberwolves are squaring of in a game that will likely pit the two first picks in the draft against each other.
The Summer Spurs will make their debut on July 11 against the Summer Knicks. New York has the fourth overall pick in the draft so in the first game San Antonio will go against a top rookie. Their second game will be played on July 12 and will be against the Bucks, which won't have Jabari Parker (recovering from an ACL tear) in their roster but will have last year's second round pick Damien Inglis ready to go as well as whoever they select with the 17th pick in the draft. The Spurs will close the first stage of the tournament against the Trail Blazers on July 14.
The second stage is a championship round. Every team -- no matter their record in the first stage -- is guaranteed at least five games. Last season the Spurs, who had Kyle Anderson, Jeff Ayres and Austin Daye in their roster, finished with a 4-2 record.
Kyle Anderson is expected to be a part of the team along with the 26th pick in the draft. The Spurs' roster has not been announced yet.
The Spurs will play the 76ers on July 6 to open the tournament. Joel Embiid won't likely suit up after suffering setback on his foot injury but Philadelphia has the third pick in the draft. After that the Spurs will go against the Jazz, which will likely have Dante Exum and this year's draft pick on their roster. Finally, they will face Boston on July 9. The Celtics have three draft picks this year and will also likely feature Marcus Smart.
