Las Vegas Summer League notes

New, comments

Keith Langlois revealed a few interesting names that will be playing for the Pistons on the summer league:

Dee Brown, the former Illinois All-American who played with Utah as a rookie two years ago, will be on the Pistons’ roster. Sammy Mejia, last year’s second-round pick, was going to be but he sprained an ankle recently and won’t make it. Alex Acker will also be on the team and has a shot at sticking with the Pistons next year.

Because the Pistons will have three draft choices on the team – as well as Rodney Stuckey, Arron Afflalo, Cheikh Samb and Amir Johnson – they won’t be filling it up with a bunch of other notable players. That’s an unusual number of players for a Summer League team who have already cinched roster spots or have realistic NBA futures.

In case you missed it, here's the schedule:

July 11 - Detroit vs. L.A. Lakers, 5:00 p.m. PST on NBA TV
July 13 - Detroit vs. L.A. Clippers, 7:00 p.m. PST
July 15 - Detroit vs. Milwaukee, 3:00 p.m. PST
July 17 - Detroit vs. Dallas, 1:00 p.m. PST on NBA TV
July 18 - Detroit vs. Charlotte, 3:00 p.m. PST

Unless noted, the games won't be televised. Once upon a time it was possible to purchase some kind of video package to watch games (or at least highlights) online -- no word yet if that will be an option again this year. I hope so, because that's a stacked roster, at least as far as summer league rosters go.
