The Dallas Mavericks announced their roster for the 2013 NBA summer league Monday, headlined by 2013 draft picks Shane Larkin and Ricky Ledo, who will join returning Mavericks Jae Crowder, Bernard James and Josh Akognon for a five-game slate played in Las Vegas from July 13-22.
Dallas will open the preliminary round with back-to-back games against the Sacramento Kings and Charlotte Bobcats on July 13 and 14. The Mavericks will then face the NBA D-League Select Team on July 16 before being seeded in a tournament running through the championship game July 22. Each team is guaranteed to play at least five games.
All games will be held at the COX Pavilion and Thomas & Mack Center on the campus of UNLV. NBA TV will broadcast the Mavericks’ matchup with the Kings on July 13 and Dallas’ game against the Bobcats on July 14.
Mavericks assistant coach Monte Mathis will serve as the head coach of the summer league team for the fourth year. Before the team makes the trip to Las Vegas, a minicamp will be held at American Airlines Center in Dallas from July 9-12.
