Everyone’s going to Vegas this summer. Well, everyone in the NBA, at least, as the league announced on Tuesday that all 30 teams will participate in the Las Vegas Summer League this year for the first time ever.
The Associated Press reported Tuesday that all NBA teams will play in the annual rookie showcase this summer. It’s a move that felt inevitable, given that Orlando announced that its league would fold up operations in November. The league then opened up participation to all 30 teams, and it seems like everyone was interested in hitting up Vegas in July.
Last year the league saw 24 teams participate, which means New York, Detroit, Indiana, Charlotte, Orlando and Oklahoma City will officially join the fold this summer in the desert. The Associated Press also reported that the Utah will still hold its summer league, with teams that participate in Salt Lake City then heading to Vegas afterward.
