Trail Blazers Announce 2016 Summer League Roster
PORTLAND, Ore. (July 5, 2016) – The Portland Trail Blazers today announced their roster for the 2016 Samsung NBA Summer League, highlighted by returning Trail Blazers Cliff Alexander, Pat Connaughton, Luis Montero and Noah Vonleh, and 2016 draft pick Jake Layman for at least five games in Las Vegas from July 8-18.
Alexander, Connaughton, Montero and Vonleh all completed their first campaign with Portland last season. Layman, the 47th overall selection in the 2016 NBA Draft, was acquired by Portland in a draft day trade with the Orlando Magic in exchange for a future second round draft pick and cash considerations.
The Trail Blazers will tip off their NBA Summer League slate on Saturday, July 9, at 1:00 p.m. against the Phoenix Suns at Cox Pavilion. Portland will follow up its opener with a game on Sunday, July 10 vs. San Antonio, before closing out the preliminary round on Tuesday, July 12 vs. Utah. The first two games will be played at COX Pavilion, while Tuesday’s contest will be at the Thomas & Mack Center. Both facilities are located on the University of Nevada Las Vegas campus.
