Denver Nuggets 2012 Summer League Schedule

The NBA just released the Las Vegas Summer League schedule, featuring 24 teams competing in 60 games from July 13-22. The Denver Nuggets will be participating in five games from July 14-20. Full schedule below

July 14 Golden State COX Pavilion 4:00 p.m.
July 15 Dallas COX Pavilion 4:00 p.m.
July 17 New York COX Pavilion 2:00 p.m.
July 19 Charlotte Thomas & Mack Center 8:30 p.m.
July 20 Portland COX Pavilion 4:00 p.m.

Chad Iske will coach the Summer League team this year, a position previously held John Welch in 2009 and ex-Nuggets assistant Jamahl Mosely in 2010 (summer league was cancelled in 2011 due to the lockout). The roster is yet to be announced but the Nuggets have confirmed second year players Kenneth Faried, Jordan Hamilton, and Julyan Stone will participate. The Nuggets announced on their website that all five games will be televised by Altitude with pre and post game coverage. NBATV will also broadcast all 60 games nationally, including 39 live from the Thomas and Mack Center and Cox Pavilion.

Summer League will showcase the best young talent in the league, with 13 of the 14 teams in June 28th’s draft lottery set to participate. Presumably, the Nuggets will feature at least one of their selections from the upcoming draft as Denver currently has one first round and two second round picks.

For those thinking of traveling to Vegas in mid-July, tickets are $25 a day for adults and on sale now at Roundball Mining Company will be in Vegas covering games and posting content.  As always, we will continue to update you on developments as summer league rosters begin to take shape following the draft on June 28th.

    Will the games be broadcast on or like they have in the past?

  • Slurm

    Anyone hear if Chu Chu will be on the summer team? or has anyone heard what he is even doing? I can’t find anything about him.

    • Kalen

      He’s been working out in Denver with Steve Hess and some of his teammates. He played with the Bakersfield Jam this past year but saw hardly any playing time. He will be on the Summer League roster this year and apparently already has it out for Bismack Biyombo:

    just asked the same thing at stiffs slurm 😀

    I went to the last summer league and it was awesome. They are basically playing in a small high school gym and you get to see everything up close and personal; most of the games aren’t played in the actual UNLV team arena but rather on a little practice court in the same building. Half the people there are the players families, some of them yelling at their kid the whole game. I got my hat signed by Ty Lawson. I’m probably going to go out for the first two Nuggets games this year. And then the rest of the day and night you can eat great food and do fun Vegas stuff. Too hot to do anything outside, though. Definitely a fun thing to do. I’d recommend it for any Nuggets fan.

    This is completely off topic, but a friend and I were talking the other day about how the NBA (and, for that matter other sports with long regular seasons) should consider shortening their regular season (40 or 50) and then having a round robin sort of post season tournament like college baseball, wherein they eliminate the conferences and just have the top 8 teams get a first round bye while the other 16 or so battle to keep from being eliminated and move on to face the top teams. It would be more exciting and you could keep fans of bad teams interested for longer if they got into the postseason and able to potentially pull off an upset or two. Generally speaking, playoffs are fun and 82 regular season games blows. Thoughts?

    • Kalen

      Fun idea but probably too complicated. I agree that 82 games is a bit too much, but because I’m a huge basketball fan I can live with it. Baseball is what gets me. How you can play nearly every day for half the year just seems totally unnecessary and above all, meaningless.

  • Manimal

    You would be glad to hear that your three boys- Nicholson , Barton and white are all scheduled for a Monday workout in Denver

    Others include Kevin Murphy – similar to Barton with a knack for scoring, could be in play at 38
    Marquis teague and tyshawn Taylor also intriguing guys are coming to Denver on Monday.

    I’m starting to feel like either you are masai ujiri or he reads the blog…

    • Kalen

      Yes, secretly I’m Masai Ujiri, releasing to the public all of my draft secrets and candid sentiments towards George Karl. Haha, I wish. I’d swoon if I heard he read RMC though…

      Btw, just got up a post about the prospects. Thanks for the heads up!

  • dynamo.joe

    covering games and posting content?

    which of those is the craps table and which is the nudie bar?

    I know there is only so much you can do, but keep the articles coming. I am so disappointed when I go to my favorites and there isn’t a new article that day.

    • Kalen

      I wish there was some way I could post something every day. Time just doesn’t allow it though. Maybe I’ll set up a donation page for readers to contribute to. The more money I get, the less I work, the more posts go up!!! :)
