Summer League 2018 Features 14 Former Cats on 12 Teams

By: Michele Brown

It’s that time of year again:  the NBA Summer League starts on Monday and once again, there are plenty of former Wildcats to cheer on in their pursuit of making a regular season roster in the NBA.   There will be 3 leagues (Utah, Sacramento, and Las Vegas) and a total of 14 former Cats will be playing for 12 teams.   Here’s what you need to know to follow the Cats:

  • The Utah (Salt Lake City) League plays July 2-5 and includes Atlanta, Memphis, Utah, and San Antonio.   As of this writing, you will not find any former Cats in these games.
  • The California Classic (Sacramento) also takes place July 2-5 and the field of teams includes Golden State, LA Lakers, Miami, and Sacramento.  You’ll want to follow Miami and Sacramento and the 3 Cats on their rosters.
  • The Vegas Summer League is slated for July 6-17 and for the first time ever will include all 30 NBA teams.

Cameron Mills Radio will be posting stats for all former Wildcats daily so you can track the progress of your favorite players.  If you have NBA-TV as part of your cable/satellite package, you’ll be able to watch all of the games in Utah and Sacramento.  When the action moves to Vegas, games will be televised on NBA-TV and a variety of ESPN channels.

Not surprisingly, Jarred Vanderbilt will not be playing as he continues to recover from his latest injury.  This will be Malik Monk’s first time to play in the Summer League as an ankle injury prevented him from participating last year.   The Summer League will also give opportunities to several Wildcats who are still grinding and trying to get a roster spot when the season begins.

Super fun fact:  Archie Goodwin is only 18 points away from being the top scorer in Vegas Summer League history.

The California Classic games that will be of interest to the Big Blue Nation are (all times ET):

July 2 (all games on NBA-TV)

Miami – Golden State 9 pm
