The Sixers announced which players would be attending their summer league camps in Utah and Las Vegas, respectively, today.
The Utah mini-camp takes place from July 2-5, ahead of the actually Utah Summer League in Salt Lake City from July 6-9. Here is the roster for that camp, via the Sixers' official site:
Since the Utah Summer League is just a four-team tourney, the Sixers will only play three games in Salt Lake City:
Monday July 6, vs. the Spurs, 7 p.m. ET
Tuesday July 7, vs. Celtics, 7 p.m. ET
Thursday July 9, vs. Jazz, 9 p.m. ET
The Sixers will also have mini-camp in Las Vegas from July 6-9 in preparation for the Las Vegas Summer League, which takes place from July 10-20. Here's the roster for that camp:
The Sixers' press release notes that Jahlil Okafor and T.J. McConnell are expected to participate in the Las Vegas Summer League, but won't be at its mini-camp because of the overlapping dates with the actual Utah Summer League. The first three games the Sixers will play, though they'll play more as the tournament progresses, are as follows:
Saturday, July 11, vs. the Lakers, 8:30 p.m. ET
Sunday July 12, vs. the Celtics, 10:30 p.m. ET
Tuesday July 14th, vs. Knicks, 5:30 p.m. ET
Joel Embiid and Nerlens Noel are notably absent among the Sixers' core of first and second-year players, but neither should come as a surprise. Embiid's foot issues are still a mystery and he'll be held out for the betterment of his long-term health. Noel played splendidly as a rookie and also tallied 71 games. He played just 24 games as a freshman at Kentucky and only 18 as a senior in high school. He deserves a bit of rest, while also not having too much to prove.
On a brighter note, there is less than one week until Okafor is taking charge down on the low block out in Salt Lake City, throwing down dunks against Brett Brown's former team. I'm sure some Sixers fans will be heading home from work a bit early to ensure they catch their first glimpses of Okafor as a Sixer.
