The Dallas Mavericks are gearing up for the Las Vegas Summer League, which kicks off on July 7. The annual event gives young talent a chance to shine and fans can get their first looks at the top rookies with their new teams.
Dallas won just one of their five games in Vegas last summer, and they averaged the second-fewest points of the 30 teams in the event. The Mavs did not make a draft pick in 2021, so they were a bit light on talent.
Dallas is looking to rebound in 2022 as they will be led by a rookie that surprisingly slipped into the second round on draft night. Here is a closer look at the Mavericks roster for the Las Vegas Summer League.

The Mavs open their summer league slate on July 8 against the Chicago Bulls. They will again play five times with the Jazz, Suns, and Bucks on the schedule before playing a placement game at the end of the event.
Dallas has four players on their roster with NBA experience, plus 2022 second-round pick Jaden Hardy, who will be part of the Mavericks' 15-man roster this season. It should be a recipe to win games in Las Vegas, but Dallas must hold their own inside as they lack a true center in their squad.
Here is a closer look at all 14 players on the Dallas Mavericks Las Vegas Summer League roster in 2022 starting with their recent draft pick.
