2018 MGM Resorts NBA Summer League TV Schedule on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and NBA TV

The 12-day, 82-game schedule for MGM Resorts NBA Summer League 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada, featuring all 30 NBA teams for the first time, tips off with 10 games on Friday, July 6 and continues through Tuesday, July 17 at the Thomas & Mack Center and Cox Pavilion on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Every Summer League game will air live on television, with ESPN networks and NBA TV combining to televise a record number of games. NBA TV’s on-site commentators in Las Vegas will include analysts Isiah Thomas, Greg Anthony, Steve Smith, Stu Jackson, Derek Fisher and eight-time NBA All-Star Vince Carter, who will serve as a guest analyst for the network for the third straight year. Matt Winer, Rick Kamla, Kristen Ledlow, Casey Stern, Ros Gold-Onwude and Jared Greenberg will share play-by-play responsibilities. Dennis Scott, Ro Parrish, Ledlow, Greenberg and Gold-Onwude will serve as reporters.

Each team will play a minimum of five games at MGM Resorts NBA Summer League, starting with three preliminary contests from July 6-10. The teams will then be seeded in the tournament, which starts on July 11 and concludes with the Championship Game on July 17.

Last year’s event, won by the Los Angeles Lakers behind 2017 Summer League MVP Lonzo Ball and 2017-18 NBA All-Rookie First Team selection Kyle Kuzma, set records for total attendance, single-day attendance, combined viewership across ESPN and NBA TV, and traffic to the NBA’s social and digital platforms.
