After eight seasons of participating in the now defunct NBA Orlando Summer League, the Oklahoma City Thunder will debut in the Las Vegas Summer League on July 6, the league announced.
Their opponent will be the Charlotte Hornets at 4:30 p.m. central time and will air on ESPNU.
The other teams in the Thunder’s pool will be the Brooklyn Nets on July 7th at 6 p.m. and the Toronto Raptors at 2:30 p.m. on July 9th. After that, tournament play will begin on the 11th. The championship game will be held on July 17th.
This will be the first time all 30 NBA teams will participate in the Las Vegas Summer League. All 82-games will take place between two sites–the Thomas & Mack Center and the Cox Pavillion.
With no first round picks at the moment, second year players Terrance Ferguson and Dakari Johnson are expected to join the Summer League roster. The Thunder do have two second round picks so new names could be added to the roster in the next few weeks.
Last year’s roster included Ferguson, Johnson, Josh Huestis, and former Thunder player Domantas Sabonis. Oklahoma City finished last in the Orlando Summer League pool winning two games and losing two.
