The Dallas Mavericks' Summer League is set. For the tenth year in a row, the Mavs will be in Las Vegas to take part in Summer League.
Dallas begins play Saturday, July 11th as they take on the New Orleans Pelicans. The Samsung NBA Summer League begins the day before and is a tournament-style competition spanning 11 days and totaling 67 games. Once again, all games will take place on the campus of UNLV at the Thomas and Mack Center and Cox Pavilion.
Here's what the Mavs' full schedule looks like (all times are Central):
Saturday, July 11
3 p.m. - New Orleans vs. Dallas
Sunday, July 12
9 p.m. - Portland vs. Dallas
Tuesday, July 14
Thomas & Mack
2:30 p.m. - Washington vs. Dallas
The second two are on TXA 21 locally. All games can be streamed via Summer League Live, available for $5 on NBA.com. Some games may also be available on NBA TV.
After the initial three games, the Mavericks will play in at least an additional two games. These games are based on seeding. If Dallas makes it all the way to the Summer League championship, that game will take place on Monday, July 20th.
The Mavericks have never been Summer League champions.
While the roster has not been set yet, and won't be until after the NBA Draft on June 25th, it's possible that some of the players who have been working out with Dallas could find themselves on the Mavs' Summer League roster. However, the team will have to either draft them or select them if they go undrafted. You can check out a list of players who have worked out with the Mavericks here.
Last year, the Mavs' Yuki Togashi, who was profiled by our Tim Cato, was a breakout fan favorite at the tournament.
If you can't make it out to Las Vegas, all games will be televised on NBA TV and can be streamed via NBA Summer League Live.
