Summer Is Coming!

Summer league is coming for the New Orleans Pelicans. The team will host a mini-camp from July 6-9th, with their first game in Las Vegas, NV, being on July 10th against the Milwaukee Bucks. The Pelicans also have games scheduled against the Dallas Mavericks and the Brooklyn Nets. After that, summer league turns into a single-elimination style tournament, with each team playing at least five games.

All 67 games will be aired on NBA TV, with the championship game being on July 20th at 8 PM CT. The games will also be made available via NBA.com and the NBA Game Time App.

Without any picks in this year’s NBA Draft, the Pelicans roster will mostly consist of journeymen. Some notables are two players part of the NBA sorority via family in Larry Drew II (via his father) and Seth Curry (via his MVP and NBA champion brother, Steph Curry.) Jarvis Varnado, of Mississippi State (and who was drafted in the second round by the Miami Heat in 2010), is another player who can potentially make the roster, due to his wingspan and timing when blocking shots.
