All hail Vegas Summer League, the 2013 edition of which tips off on Friday. The Sacramento Kings' entry won't get into action until Saturday. Here's a refresher on the Kings' schedule. All times Pacific.
Then the Kings will play at least two additional games from Wednesday, July 17, through the weekend. Teams will be seeded and a tournament bracket will ensue. Stay tuned on that.
Here's the Kings' roster. Only player currently with a guaranteed contract is Ben McLemore, though Ray McCallum may very well sign on before we tip off.
Ashley Hamilton (Loyola Marymount)
C.J. Aiken (St. Joe's)
Chris Evans (Kent State)
Drew Gordon (New Mexico)
Nick Minnerath (Detroit)
Ben McLemore (Kansas)
Ray McCallum (Detroit)
Will Clyburn (Iowa State)
Shane Gibson (Sacred Heart)
Jorge Gutierrez (Cal)
David Lighty (Ohio State)
Trent Lockett (Marquette)
Kyle Randall (Central Michigan)
Xavier Gibson (Florida State)
Garrett Stutz (Wichita State)
A couple of these guys could be cut Friday morning, though having 15 players is pretty normal. Chris Jent will coach the team.
Games will be available on NBA TV, some on tape delay. (There are conflicting games due to two sites.) But you can catch everything live and archived through NBA.com's Summer League Broadband package, which is $15.
