The Dallas Mavericks are ready for the annual Las Vegas Summer League. They started a mini-camp on Aug. 3 back in Dallas before traveling to the event. This year, all 30 teams will take part in Vegas.
The Mavs are guaranteed to play at least five games from Aug. 8th to the 17th. Four are scheduled prior to the event. Dallas kicks off against the Philadelphia 76ers on Aug. 9. They also face the Utah Jazz on Aug. 11, the Denver Nuggets on Aug. 14, and the Sacramento Kings on Aug. 15. The Mavericks will play at least one more game following those four depending on their record.
Summer league was canceled in 2020 by the pandemic, so Josh Green, Tyrell Terry, and Nate Hinton missed out. They will be in Las Vegas taking part in the event heading into their second season. Summer league is a showcase for first and second-year talents. Every year, players make statements and earn contracts in Las Vegas. Who will be showcasing their skills for the Mavs this year?
