Courtside action and fan fun from the Samsung NBA Summer League games in Las Vegas and UNLV’s Thomas and Mack Center and Cox Pavilion. The 24-team field is composed of 14 playoff teams from the 2014-15 NBA season, nine teams with lottery picks in NBA Draft 2015 presented by State Farm, and an NBA Development League Select Team.
Teams competed in three preliminary round games from Jul 10-14 before being seeded in a tournament that started on July 15 and concludes with the Championship Game on July 20. Each team is guaranteed to play at least five games. Photography by Sam Morris and Glenn Pinkerton of the Las Vegas News Bureau.
