Portland Trail Blazers' NBA Summer League schedule released

The New Orleans Pelicans return to Las Vegas for the MGM Resorts 2018 NBA Summer League on July 6, the NBA announced Tuesday (June 12).

For the Suns, summer league will tip off on opening night Friday, July 6 at 6:30 p.m. against the Dallas Mavericks. The game will be broadcasted on ESPNU.

The Celtics will play the Philadelphia 76ers on July 6, the Denver Nuggets on July 7 and the Charlotte Hornets on July 9. The game kicks off a three-game preliminary schedule for Chicago before the elimination tournament begins July 11. For the first time, every game will also air on either ESPN channels or NBA TV. Rosters are made up of soon-to-be rookies, second-or-third-year players, fringe performers trying to make National Basketball Association rosters, G Leaguers, guys who play overseas and occasional longtime veterans attempting to stick in the league. Every team is guaranteed at least five games in total, so the Raptors will be in Vegas until at least July 13 and possible as late as July 17 if they make a run to the championship. Two rookies from this season's team, guard Terrance Ferguson and center Dakari Johnson, are expected to play for OKC's Summer League team.

Jackson has had three foot procedures performed since joining the Pelicans and hasn't taken the floor since his only season at Duke.
