  Pacers to Participate in MGM Resorts NBA Summer League 2018        All 30 NBA Teams to Take Part in 12-Day 82 Game Event

Each of the 82 games that will be played during this year's Las Vegas Summer League will air live on television, between ESPN networks and NBA TV. The matchups are split between Thomas & Mack Arena and Cox Pavilion.

The Lakers will begin defense of their Summer League title against the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday, July 7 at 11:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2.

The Pelicans follow that with contests against the Miami Heat on July 7 and the Detroit Pistons on July 9 to close out pool play.

For Bulls fans, the summer league may represent an early opportunity to see whoever the team takes with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. Rosters are made up of soon-to-be rookies, second-or-third-year players, fringe performers trying to make National Basketball Association rosters, G Leaguers, guys who play overseas and occasional longtime veterans attempting to stick in the league.

The Thunder's only previous appearance at the Las Vegas Summer League came in 2009, the summer between the franchise's last season in Seattle and its first in Oklahoma City.

All 30 franchises will send affiliate teams to Las Vegas Summer League, making for the first time that every National Basketball Association organization will have a squad in Vegas. Two rookies from this season's team, guard Terrance Ferguson and center Dakari Johnson, are expected to play for OKC's Summer League team.
