On Tuesday (August 3rd), the first of the NBA’s three Summer League extravaganzas tips-off in Sacramento with the California Classic, before a brief stop at Salt Lake City Summer League and then finally, the much more common and recognized MGM Resorts NBA Summer League in Las Vegas Nevada. To say the NBA has a busy few weeks on their hands is an understatement.
