NEW  YORK, April 10, 2012 – NBA Summer League returns to action this summer July  13-22  at the Thomas & Mack Center and the COX Pavilion on the campus of the University of Nevada Las Vegas.

Launched  in  2004  as  the  Las  Vegas  Summer League, the inaugural event featured  six  NBA  teams  (Boston  Celtics,  Cleveland Cavaliers,  Denver Nuggets,  Orlando  Magic,  Phoenix  Suns  and Washington Wizards) playing a 13-game  slate. The NBA joined forces with the original event organizers in 2007,  and  the  summer  showcase  has  expanded  exponentially  since  its inception.

During  the  most  recent  competition  in 2010, 22 NBA teams, including 11 playoff  teams,  competed in a 58-game schedule that featured 10 of the top 14  picks  in the 2010 NBA Draft.  Fans that weren’t able to experience the action in person were able to tune into NBA TV or log on to and see every  play,  including  Jeremy  Lin’s  breakout performance for the Dallas Mavericks. Matched up against John Wall and the Washington Wizards on July 15,  2010,  Lin  scored  11  of  his 13 points in the fourth quarter as the Mavericks  mounted  a  furious  comeback  after  trailing  from the opening buzzer, to come within six points of victory, before falling, 88-82.

Landry  Fields,  Lin’s  current  backcourt  mate  with the New York Knicks, arrived in Las Vegas two summers ago as an unheralded second-round pick (39th  overall)  in  the  2010  NBA Draft. In five games, Fields averaged 15.6 points  and  4.8  rebounds,  then went on to earn NBA All-Rookie First Team honors, appearing in all 82 games (81 starts) for the Knicks, averaging 9.7
points and 6.4 rebounds.

Exciting  games featuring the NBA’s newest talent have always been a staple at  NBA  Summer  League.  Five of the last six NBA Rookie of the Year award winners  have  joined  their  teams in Las Vegas including: Chris Paul (New Orleans  Hornets,  2005-06), Brandon Roy (Portland Trail Blazers, 2006-07), Kevin  Durant  (Oklahoma City, 2007-08), Tyreke Evans (Sacramento, 2009-10)
and Blake Griffin (L.A. Clippers, 2010-11).

Other  league  highlights include the participation of the Chinese National team  in  2007, which marked the first international team to participate in the  league  and  the NBA Development League Select team’s participation in 2009 and 2010 events.

Tickets  for  the 2012 NBA Summer League will go on sale June 1, at 10 a.m. PDT.   Fans will be able to purchase tickets for the Strip’s hottest summer event  by  calling 702-739-FANS, through or by visiting any UNLV ticket outlet.
