The NBA has announced the schedule for the summer league games held in Los Vegas and the Nuggets will be playing six games. Games are played at either the Cox Pavilion or the Thomas & Mack Center. Games begin on Friday July 10, but Denver does not see the court until July 14. I am guessing the start times are Pacific.
Denver vs. San Antonio – 7:00 PM Tuesday, July 14 – Cox Pavilion
Denver vs. Washington – 7:30 PM Wednesday, July 15 – Thomas & Mack
Denver vs. Portland – 7:30 PM Friday, July 17 – Thomas & Mack
NBA D-League Select vs. Denver – 7:00 PM Saturday, July 18 – Cox Pavilion
Denver vs. New Orleans – 5:30 PM Sunday, July 19 – Thomas & Mack
The Nuggets have had some good talent on their summer league roster in the past, but it is difficult for even a good player to make the jump from summer league standout to earning a spot on the regular season roster. Last season Dahntay Jones was able to do just that and depending on what Denver does with players like Linas Kleiza, Anthony Carter, Johan Petro, Renaldo Balkman and Jones there could be a chance for someone to follow in Dahntay’s footsteps.
