For those of you that enjoy the lights of Las Vegas, the NBA’s best young players or both, the 2011-12 Summer League schedule will be of interest.
LAKERS SUMMER LEAGUE MATCHUPS:
Friday, July 13: LAL vs Golden State (5 p.m.)
Saturday, July 14: LAL vs Sacramento (5 p.m.)
Monday, July 16: LAL vs. Miami (5:30 p.m.)
Tuesday, July 17: LAL vs. San Antonio (3:30 p.m.)
Thursday, July 19: LAL vs. L.A. Clippers (5:30 p.m.)
The Lakers have not completed or announced their Summer League roster, but we might expect last year’s second round picks Darius Morris and Andrew Goudelock to join Christian Eyenga and the player(s) that L.A. select(s) in the 2012 NBA Draft on a squad to be coached by one of Mike Brown’s assistant coaches.
Lakers.com will be there for the first three games, offering full coverage with in-game running diaries, tweets, video and so on, to make sure you don’t miss much if you can’t make the trek to Vegas.
Aside from whom we see on the LAL roster, lottery picks from the Kings (No. 5) and Warriors (No. 7) can be seen live; seeing the future of the league is always a pleasant prospect.
