Are you already having basketball withdrawals? Well, time for some good news! The Orlando Summer league starts on July 9th in Orlando, FL. If you’re not sure what the summer leagues are, they’re basically leagues for players from rookies to second year guys to get some game time experience. Oklahoma City has competed in the Orlando Summer league every year since coming to Oklahoma City.
Looks like Reggie Jackson, Cole Aldrich and Lazar Hayward will be participating in the Summer league.
We have updated the schedule on our scheduling tab. Also, you can click here, and view it as well.
All games will also be televised on NBATV, not to mention I’ll be tweeting them too. So, expect that later in the evening when I get off work. (Because, I do this for free, gotta pay the bills some how).
Here are the rules to the Summer League.
