The NBA Summer League has fostered future All-Stars, MVPs, and even Hall of Famers. With this year’s draft class expected to be a star-studded one, the LA Clippers will find out relatively quickly if they’ve knocked their pick out of the park.

Just 16 days after making their selection, LA personnel will stalk the Summer League sidelines in Las Vegas. In total, with LA forgoing their first-round selection in this year’s draft, in lieu of bringing Paul George on board, LA’s second-round draft pick will have four games to prove his NBA worth, starting July 9th.

Whomever the Clippers ultimately select, they’ll be given center stage. Three of the Clippers’ first four Summer League contests will be shown on NBA TV. His curtain closing performance will take place on ESPN2.

LA Clippers Summer League opponents and dates revealed

  • July 9th: LA Clippers vs. Memphis Grizzlies, 9:30 PM ET
  • July 12th: LA Clippers vs. Los Angeles Lakers, 11:00 PM ET
  • July 13th: LA Clippers vs. Denver Nuggets, 10:00 PM ET
  • July 16th: LA Clippers vs. Utah Jazz, 5:00 PM ET

During last season’s Summer League play, Brandon Boston Jr. shined. Their 2021 second-rounder led LA in the scoring department with 13 points per game. But, despite his scoring efforts, LA went just 1-4. As of now, an official roster has yet to be announced but their new baby-faced selection in this year’s draft, barring injury, figures to play a prominent role.

As a source of both motivation and camaraderie, many of the NBA’s biggest and most prominent stars have been spotted sitting courtside during Summer League games over the year’s, cheering on their new teammates. Paul George, a seven-time All-Star, has been spotted numerous times sitting close to the action as he rises to his feet and claps his hands in approval.

The sure-fire Hall of Famer left his own indelible mark in the Summer League in 2010. George got his NBA legs underneath him by showcasing his talent in the summer classic. He would go on to average 15.2 points in five outings.

George has since left his Summer League exploits behind him and carved out a unique career in the NBA. With LA just missing out on nabbing one of the final postseason spots this past year, their second pick in this year’s draft will hope to leave a positive impression on LA’s coaching staff in hopes of cracking their heavily established rotation.
