The Toronto Raptors have the first part of their schedule for Las Vegas Summer League. The NBA released the Summer League schedule on Tuesday, bigger and better this year to include all 30 teams and 82 games over 12 days. For the first time, every game will also air on either ESPN channels or NBA TV.
The Raptors’ schedule for the preliminary round is as follows:
- Friday, July 6 – 12pm PT vs. New Orleans (ESPNU)
- Sunday, July 8 – 12pm PT vs. Minnesota (NBA TV)
- Monday, July 9, 12:30pm PT vs. Oklahoma City (NBA TV)
From there, teams will be bracketed based on record and point differential. Every team is guaranteed at least five games in total, so the Raptors will be in Vegas until at least July 13 and possibly as late as July 17 if they make a run to the championship.
It’s not immediately clear which Raptors will be headed to Vegas, but Alfonzo McKinnie and Malachi Richardson seem like guarantees, while OG Anunoby (who missed last year’s due to injury and could probably use some reps as a featured player), Pascal Siakam, Jakob Poeltl, and Malcolm Miller (a restricted free agent) are all potential assignees, though Siakam and Poeltl may be too dominant for that level at this point. The Raptors will also likely have any pick they trade for or purchase on draft night there, at least one or two Raptors 905 holdovers, and a number of other interesting free agent prospects who could earn a training camp invite or get on the radar for the 905 season ahead.
