The NBA announced its full schedule for Summer League in Las Vegas next month, while also revealing that the Knicks will tip off the entire session by taking on the Dallas Mavericks on July 11th. See below for the team’s schedule.
Friday July 11
1 PM – New York vs. Dallas* (Game 1)
Saturday July 12
1 PM – Portland vs. New York* (Game 7)
Monday July 14
1 PM – New York vs. Charlotte* (Game 23)
For the second consecutive year, Summer League will feature a tournament-style schedule, allowing each participating team to play three games leading up to July 15th. From there on out, squads will be seeded and the rest of the schedule will follow accordingly, though each team will play at least two more games regardless.
Last season, both Toure Murry and Jeremy Tyler hoped to impress Knicks’ brass by strutting their stuff in Las Vegas, and subsequently succeeded. Iman Shumpert and Tim Hardaway Jr. also participated briefly as well.
Currently with no draft picks to speak of, Summer League will likely be an invaluable setting for New York to seek out potential diamonds in the rough heading into next season.
