Celtics Vegas summer league schedule announced

John - Red's Army (@RedsArmy_John) June 14, 2012 Celtics News 8 Comments

The Boston Celtics are participating in both the Las Vegas and Orlando summer leagues this year, giving their young guys a huge chance to earn a closer look at training camp.  The Orlando camps are sparsely covered, but the Vegas league has become a pretty big thing.  You’ll be able to watch most or all of the games from home (though going there is SOOO much more fun). 

Today, the NBA released the full schedule.  Here are the Celtics games:

  • Monday, July 16
    3 PM — Atlanta vs. Boston (Cox Pavilion)
  • Tuesday, July 17
    10 PM — Chicago vs. Boston (Cox Pavilion)
  • Thursday, July 19
    10:30 PM — Boston vs. Sacramento (Thomas & Mack Center)
  • Saturday, July 21
    10:30 PM — Milwaukee vs. Boston (Thomas & Mack Center)
  • Sunday, July 22
    10 PM — Boston vs. LA Clippers (Cox Pavilion)

Yeah, those are some late games, but bear in mind Vegas is on Pacific time. 

Like I said, the trip is worth it if you can swing it.  But keep in mind I’m a “Vegas guy”… so I really don’t need a reason to go and enjoy it.  I do plan on being there and hopefully covering it and talking to a lot of our young guys.  I’ll keep you updated on that next month.

    The world is a better place with Summer League returning this summer. I remember watching a young Kendrick Perkins play in Summer League in 2005 while talking with one of his childhood friends.

    Billups and Rasheed showed up one of the days and I spoke with David Aldridge (then at ESPN). If anyone gets the chance to attend, as you wrote, it’s definitely worth it. Tickets for a session are pretty reasonable, too ($22 per session for adults).
