    I believe it depends upon Lithuania qualifying for the Olympics. If they qualify, he's out; if they don't, he'll be playing blackjack.

    i was thinking about this the other day, two summers ago Jeremy Lin played for the Dallas Mavericks summer league team where Casey got to know him. They didn't go anywhere with him becasue they had Beaubois (right or wrong that's not the point). My point is that maybe these Lin rumours we've been hearing hold merit because Dwayne Casey wants him and that has created rumours. Maybe i'm just making things up.

    Summer league should be good nonetheless. Ed Davis will be there and whoever we draft. Hopefully it proves helpful!

    The Qualification Tournament is held in Caracas from July 2nd to July 8th. So if they fail, he could definitely be in Vegas with the Raps.

    But honestly, I really can't see how Lithuania could fail when you know that 3 Olympics tickets will be delivered there.

    They'll have to beat Nigeria and Venezuela in the preliminary round (easy), then they'll probably face Jordan or Puerto Rico in 1/4 final (shouldn't be a problem).

    And then Macedonia (a bit trickier but largely doable), where they can qualify directly or have a second chance if they lose, through a game against the loser of Greece-Russia.

    All in all, my point is : forget about seeing JV in Vegas, he'll be in London. And I think that's way better in terms of experience : can't wait to see him playing against the US team.

    Raptors TV has televised a few summer league games in the past (if I'm not mistaken). Anyone know if there will be TV coverage this year?

    Correction: It's now called NBATv.

    The following link indicates "YES"....on NBATv and other digital platforms (whatever that includes).

    I'm curious to see how many players will actually take part from the expected team. I'd assume the 1st round pick and two second rounders if BC uses all three but other then that it would just be filler. I'm curious if Ed Davis or Solo would take part?

    PJ3 should be there, Ed should be there, our second rounders(if they don't get traded), and Solo should too
