A total of 23 NBA teams will compete in the Samsung Summer League that takes place in Las Vegas beginning on July 11 and ending on July 21.

The offseason action has already gotten underway in Orlando, but a larger portion of rookies, prospects and undrafted free agents will give fans a preview of next year's action.

For hardcore hoops fans who can't wait for the regular season, or for those enthralled with the play of the most recently drafted rookies, you can see the entire summer league schedule here.

Games can be seen on NBA TV as well as live streamed through NBA Summer League Live.

 

Players to Watch

Andrew Wiggins

He hasn't played a single second in the NBA, but Wiggins' name has already appeared in trade rumors.

Unless you've been living under a proverbial rock, you're aware that a guy named LeBron James might be going back to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

If that happens, there is speculation that the Cavs could send Wiggins and other assets to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Kevin Love.

Well, no matter who Wiggins lands with, his team will be in action in Las Vegas. Both Cleveland and Minnesota are among the teams included in the Las Vegas Summer League.

Per Cleveland.com's Chris Fedor, Wiggins is part of the Cavs' summer league roster.

If he's still a Cavalier in the next few days, which is probable, he's likely to be the man most focus on in Vegas. Wiggins recently tweeted about signing an endorsement deal with Adidas.

You can bet he'll be rocking the Three Stripes during summer league play. Will new Wiggins shoes be unveiled?

Quietly, Parker seems set up for the biggest statistical year of any rookie. He's going to a team desperately in need of scoring and an identity. Parker can give the Bucks both.

Before he gives it to teams during the 82-game regular season and possibly the playoffs, Parker will have the opportunity to show his skills for the Bucks summer league squad.

With perhaps the most NBA-ready game of any prospect in this year's stacked draft, Parker seems like a lock to light up Vegas.

Don't be surprised to see him leave Sin City as the odds-on favorite to win Rookie of the Year.

Everyone wants to see Wiggins and Parker suit up for their new teams, but most hoops fans have seen them play live. Most Americans have only seen YouTube footage of Dante Exum.

So far, Jazz head coach Quin Snyder has been impressed. Per Tony Jones of The Salt Lake Tribune, Snyder says: "He’s fast. More than anything, he looks like he knows how to play. He kicks the ball head, he’s a willing passer, he knows how to play pick-and-roll. He’s a good player."

That's a solid endorsement from his new head coach, but what will happen when the young Australian gets his first taste of competitive action against pros?

We'll soon find out.
