The Nuggets may or may not have a top ten pick to check out during the 2010 NBA Summer League, but regardless of who is on the roster, Denver has the great honor of playing in the first game in Vegas this summer. OK, so maybe that is not such a big honor. Regardless, here is the schedule (all times Pacific):
1:00 PM Friday, July 9 at COX Pavilion
Denver vs. Dallas
3:00 PM Saturday, July 10 at COX Pavilion
L.A. Lakers vs Denver
1:00 PM Sunday, July 11 at COX Pavilion
New York vs. Denver
1:00 PM Tuesday, July 13 at COX Pavilion
Denver vs. Chicago
1:00 PM Wednesday, July 14 at Cox Pavilion
Denver vs. Houston
Sadly, barring any trades the Nuggets will not face off against any of the top picks in this year’s draft, or even last year’s draft for that matter. Still, it is fun to have some basketball to obsess over in the summer.
Update: The Nuggets have announced Ty Lawson will play on the summer league team. “I want to be more aggressive,” he [Lawson] said. “Summer league is where I can work on being more assertive on the court.” Of course Lawson will still have to be a Nugget if he is going to participate.
Late season additions Coby Karl and Brian Butch will be a part of the team as well. Jamahl Mosely will coach.
