The Clippers drafted two new players last night, and now Clipper fans know when they can see them play for the first time.
The Las Vegas Summer League schedule was announced today. The Clippers have four games to take a good look at their no. 27 pick Mfiondu Kabengele, no. 48 pick Terance Mann, undrafted Oshae Brissett, and year two of Jerome Robinson.
Here is the full schedule (all times are Pacific Standard Time):
- Saturday, July 6 at 4:30 p.m. (ESPNU) — vs. Los Angeles Lakers
- Sunday, July 7 at 8:30 p.m. (ESPN 2) — vs. Memphis Grizzlies
- Tuesday, July 9 at 8:30 p.m. (NBA TV) — vs. Washington Wizards
- Thursday, July 11 at 7:00 p.m. (NBA TV) — vs. Sacramento Kings
As is often the case with Summer League, it’s hard to know what the rosters will look like until closer to the date. LA only has four confirmed participants, since Shai Gilgeous-Alexander got enough NBA reps last season to age out of playing this year.
The Lakers roster could include any number of random players, but will likely feature no. 46 pick Talen Horton-Tucker, along with undrafted signees Zach Norvell, Jordan Caroline, Aric Holman, and Devontae Cacok. But is it really a battle for Staples Center if it takes place at the Thomas & Mack Center?
Memphis will be without no. 2 overall pick Ja Morant, but will probably have Brandon Clarke and potentially 2018 draftee Grayson Allen. The Wizards will star Rui Hachimura out of Gonzaga as well as Admiral Schofield, Justin Robinson, and potentially sophomore Troy Brown. The Kings didn’t have any first-rounders this year, but did take Justin James, Kyle Guy, and Vanja Marinkovic.
