2013 NBA Summer League schedule; new tournament format



Viva Las Vegas! The 2013 NBA Summer League in Sin City will feature 22 league teams competing in a 61-game schedule. All games will be July 12-22 at the Thomas & Mack Center and COX Pavilion at UNLV. Good, so we’ll actually have something to talk about during that super boring week of the MLB All-Star break.

This 2013 NBA Summer League debuts a tournament style schedule; making the f2013 NBA Summer League Champion the first ever true “champion in NBA Summer League history. This should ignite more interest.

Each NBA Team will have three preliminary games July 12-16 before being seeded in a tournament, culminating with the Championship Game on July 22.

NBA TV will televise NBA Summer League, which opens with the debut of New Orleans as the Pelicans vs. the New York Knicks Friday, July 12. PT. The Cleveland Cavaliers have been participants in every NBA Summer League in Las Vegas since the league began in 2004. So the Cavs have that going for them; which is nice.

Additional teams participating: Atlanta Hawks, Charlotte Bobcats, Chicago Bulls, Dallas Mavericks, Denver Nuggets, Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers, Memphis Grizzlies, Miami Heat, Milwaukee Bucks, Minnesota Timberwolves, New Orleans Pelicans, New York Knicks, Phoenix Suns, Portland Trail Blazers, Sacramento Kings, San Antonio Spurs, Toronto Raptors, Washington Wizards and the NBA D-League Select team.
