The 2019 Las Vegas Summer League will take place from July 5-15, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium. 

The league may receive a bit more attention than usual with a potential star-studded draft class of 2019, which may be led by Duke forward Zion Williamson. Through 16 games, the 6'7" freshman has averaged 21.2 points on 66.2 percent shooting, 9.4 rebounds and 2.0 blocks.

He isn't the only player to watch for, however, as teammates RJ Barrett and Cam Reddish figure to be lottery picks should they declare. Barrett leads the Blue Devils with 23.4 points per game, and Reddish posts 13.3 points a night.

They won't be the only ones to watch out for, however, with dynamic Murray State guard Ja Morant dominating college basketball.

The sophomore is averaging 23.3 points on 55.0 percent shooting in addition 10.6 assists and 1.6 steals. He's led the Racers to a 14-2 mark and 5-0 Ohio Valley Conference record and drew a comparison to Sacramento Kings point guard De'Aaron Fox from NBADraft.net.

Fans of teams who don't land that quartet shouldn't be disappointed, as the list goes on. Furthermore, last season marked the first year where all 30 NBA teams were represented in Las Vegas. Therefore, all fans should get the chance to catch their favorite team's new rookies.

The 2019 draft class' destinations will be determined on Thursday, June 20. The Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York will be the host.
