The Lakers have far more important concerns this summer, including whether Dwight Howard will stay, what they’ll do with Pau Gasol and if they can maintain cap flexibility for the 2014 offseason.
But the Lakers will also spend part of their July in the Las Vegas Summer League in what will make their sixth appearance in Sin City beginning July 12-22.
The NBA announced the scheduled on Thursday for the 22 NBA teams, including the Lakers, which will play against Cleveland (July 12 at Cox Pavilion at 5 p.m.), Portland (July 14 at Thomas & Mack Center at 3:30 p.m.) and the Clippers (July 15 at Cox Pavilion at 5 p.m.). All teams, including the Lakers, will play at least five games. The remaining of the schedule from July 16 to 22 will hinge on the each’s team’s seeding in a single-elimination tournament.
