The Portland Trail Blazers tip off in Las Vegas this weekend during the NBA's annual Summer League. Players like Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum and Meyers Leonard have stopped by to participate in practice, but the actual games will feature the new guys, such as Noah Vonleh and Pat Connaughton, as well as Allen Crabbe and Tim Frazier. And somehow, Keith Bogans.
In the current Summer League format, the Blazers will play three games, gaining points each time they win a quarter or the game. They'll be seeded into a playoff tournament, where they will play at least two games. If they keep winning, they can play more.
Blazer's Edge will have truckloads of coverage from Summer League, including two on-site reports, along with the usual Gameday Threads, instant recaps, and extended analysis.
