Sixers’ NBA Summer League Schedule Released for 2021
The Sixers could have a new look after this offseason, which is now underway, beginning with the NBA Draft on Thursday.
After a one-year hiatus because of COVID-19, the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas will return with the Sixers younger talent taking the court.
Philadelphia opens play Aug. 9 against the Dallas Mavericks and will play a total of four games in the Vegas Summer League.
It will be interesting to see if the Sixers use their time in Las Vegas to get 2020 first-round pick Tyrese Maxey out on the floor to see him in more game action, after a successful and exciting rookie season.
Maxey had a solid rookie season, scoring 8.0 points and 2.0 assists per game.
He could potentially be joined on the Sixers’ Summer League roster by guard Isaiah Joe, who as a rookie this past season played in 41 games, as well as forward Paul Reed, who appeared in 26 games as a rookie.
The Sixers hold the 28th pick heading into Thursday’s selections, and it has been reported that the team could move that pick, if they don't expect that player to be on the Summer League roster.
Summer League games will run from Aug. 8 through Aug. 17 and will air on ESPN or NBA TV. They will also stream on the ESPN app.
