The dates are: July 2, July 3, July 5

The teams are: Utah Jazz, Memphis Grizzlies, Atlanta Hawks and the San Antonio Spurs. Two teams with high picks in the draft will be participating so... would be interesting to see.

Also, the SL is returning to Vivint Smart Home Arena.

Cool, wonder if we'll see either Mitchell or Exum again this year. Always fun to see what the rookie prospects look like regardless.

I doubt either Exum or Mitchell will be in the SL. Exum will be having free agency at the time so this is a 100% no-go IMO. And I don't want to see Mitchell in SL either. He has bigger fish to fry.

Mitchell might be in the stands to welcome the new draft pick. That would be about it.

Donovan won’t play, not worth the injury risk.

Tony Bradley is going to dominate the three point shooting bigs who can't shoot.

That would be nice. Given he saw about 16 minutes all season in the NBA I'm still voting project on him. The reality is, however, that any big man (not named Rudy) has to have an outside game anymore and if he can bring it...another kudo to DL and staff if it happens. Not holding my breath at this point but open-minded to Bradley busting into the rotation.

There's really no good explanation for the Bradley pick. It makes no sense to draft someone who's both a project and the type of player that is becoming extinct in the NBA. Nobody is out there looking for a ground bound big man who can't shoot, can't move his feet in space, and doesn't protect the rim. His best skill (offensive rebounding) is also something that our coach actively avoids doing.

Bigs who cannot handle the ball and create offense very rarely dominate in SL because they need to either be monsters on D(Rudy) or they need good guard play to involve them in the O and there is usually no good guard play in SL.

You forgot about the high volume of air ball passes. Bradley should feast.

The 3on3 thing isn't new. Years ago they played 3 on 3 tournaments outside and then the players got to go in and watch summer league for free. That was back in my athletic prime days. I even hit a buzzer beater from the very back of the court for a win outside of the arena in a huge wind storm (pure luck, but I don't care).

In general, I'd like to see 3 on 3 tournaments make a come back. They used to host them 2 or 3 times a month, all over the Salt Lake Valley. Was my fav thing about summer (and cost me a lot of $)! Get off the damn couch young people and go play ball!

But wait...it is so much more gratifying being a forum and NBA 2K stud. Why would a dude actually play hoops? :lol:

Expected this - now throw in the Jazz first and second plus some un-drafted dudes and we'll see how the pipeline looks. Last year was ridiculous with Ex for a minute, DM and Royce. Yeah, it's SL, but its guys trying to make the bigs and balling none-the-less. Talent does show sometimes.

Good news for the Jazz - Lakers officially announce Diangelo Ball will not be invited to join their summer league team. https://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap/250317/Lakers-Inform-LiAngleo-Ball-He-Wont-Be-On-Summer-League-Team

Jazz will look foolish for not signing with BBB a year from now...just think what social media presence boost the Jazz would get if DM didn't kill the usurper to his crown first.
