The Toronto Raptors will be one of 24 teams participating in this year’s Samsung NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. The event will run July 11-21 at the Thomas & Mack Center and COX Pavilion on the campus of the University of Nevada Las Vegas.
This year marks Toronto’s seventh appearance at the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas (2006, 2008-10, 2012-13). The Raptors hold an overall record of 15-15 (.500) at the event.
Toronto finished NBA Summer League 2013 with a 3-2 record and reached the quarter finals of the inaugural single elimination tournament after receiving a first-round bye. Jonas Valanciunas was named Most Valuable Player of the tournament, as selected by a panel of media members. He averaged 18.8 points, 10.0 rebounds and 29.3 minutes in four games.
Twenty-three NBA teams and a team of NBA Development League select players will participate in a tournament-style format to crown this year’s Samsung NBA Summer League Champion. Teams will compete in three preliminary round games from July 11-15, before being seeded in a tournament running through the Championship Game on July 21. Each team is guaranteed to play at least five games.
NBA TV will televise NBA Summer League games from Las Vegas with a complete schedule of games and broadcast information to be released at a later date. Additionally, fans will once again be able to watch, via a subscription-based package, every NBA Summer League game live on NBA.com and on the NBA Summer League app.
