The NBA Summer League 2017 Las Vegas tips off from Cox Pavilion and the Thomas & Mack with a possible look at the future stars of the league. The action will span 10 days and features eight of the teams holding top 10 draft picks just a few weeks ago. Among the young players that NBA fans may be able to see in action will be the Sixers' No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz, Lakers' No. 2 pick Lonzo Ball, and Celtics' No. 3 pick Jayson Tatum. Several other top stars of tomorrow could be featured. Here's a look at the upcoming NBA Summer League Las Vegas schedule for the teams competing in Nevada.

Las Vegas teams

The Las Vegas Summer League will feature a majority of the league's summer squads in action. They'll include the Philadelphia Sixers, Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics, Phoenix Suns and Sacramento Kings who owned the first five picks in the NBA Draft 2017 edition. That could mean that fans will get an early glimpse of future stars including Lonzo Ball, Markelle Fultz, Jayson Tatum, and Josh Jackson.

Among the teams not slated to participate in this particular region are the Charlotte Hornets, Orlando Magic, New York Knicks, Indiana Pacers and Detroit Pistons, all of who competed in the Orlando league. Only the league champion Dallas Mavs will be a part of the Vegas region's games.
