WHERE: Thomas & Mack Center (UNLV), Las Vegas, NV
WHEN: 3:30 p.m. CT
HOW: NBA TV or mavs.com
THE STORY: In the Mavericks’ first Las Vegas Summer League game, they should come out with a stacked roster and guns blazing. I mean, it’s basically half the regular season roster - Yogi Ferrell, Nicolas Brussino, Dorian Finney-Smith...you know the guys. This will also be our first chance to see new Maverick Dennis Smith, Jr. in action, which should be a ball. For the Bulls, expect to see some of Lauri Markkanen, who was rumored to be a guy the Mavs liked heading into the draft a couple weeks ago.
The Mavs have to be considered contenders for the Vegas Summer League crown - and having already taken the Orlando Summer League championship, why not? They’re the only championships the team will probably sniff this year.
Let’s go Summer Mavs!!!
