The NBA has announced that the Las Vegas Summer League will feature 22 teams this year and for the second straight year the Bobcats, erm... Hornets will be participating in the Vegas Summer League.
This year will be different as this is the first year that teams will compete for the Summer League Title. The Hornets have a very good chance at taking home that Championship as they went 4-1 last year in the Vegas Summer League and currently have the highest winning percentage of any team in the Vegas Summer League at .800%.
The ninth NBA Summer League in Las Vegas tips off on Friday, July 12, and will conclude with a championship game on Monday, July 22. All participating teams will play a minimum of five games. After the conclusion of games on July 16, all teams will have completed three games and will be seeded for single-elimination tournament play that will lead to a champion being crowned on July 22.
The Hornets roster will likely feature Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Jeff Taylor, and their 2013 rookie selection (as long as they don't trade it or the player isn't injured) and it could also feature Bismack Biyombo (if Ewing is the coach) and Jeff Adrien.
NBA TV will broadcast a full slate of the games.
