    Default Official Summer League Thread

    When do the two trades become official? I ask because I would like to see our new picks - Brandon Rush and Roy Hibbert - participate in the 2008 Orlando Pro Summer League from July 7-11. It will be upsetting if the trade cannot be finalized until July 9th, which I've heard a couple times now as the official date.

    Either way, some of the big names we'll get to see include Derrick Rose (Chicago), Michael Beasley (Miami), Russell Westbrook (Sonics) and Brook Lopez (Nets) - I'm not sure if Yi Jianlian will be there because of the Olympics. Courtney Lee (Orlando), Chris Douglas-Roberts (Nets) and Mario Chalmers (Miami) are some of the other big names that should be in attendance. It'd also be pretty nice to see what, if anything, Josh McRoberts can do.

    Games will be broadcast live off the Orlando Magic website.

    I don't think they'll be able to play which sucks.

    ...July 9th...

    Not sure if B. Rush, Hibbert or McRoberts would be able to play in Summer League games under the circumstances. I guess ideally, they'd play for their original teams on 7/8 July and then change over to the Pacers' roster on the 9th.

    Just a guess...would be a bit ridiculous to go about things that way, but 'dem be the hand the players and teams have been dealt by yours truly...the Commish.

    See, the thing is that the Blazers and Raptors both participate in the Las Vegas Summer League the following week. Damnit!

    I don't understand why Rush won't be able to play in the summer league. Jack isn't BYC.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    Fool was saying yesterday that July 9th is when Jack's contract will go up enough for the trade to work.

    Ah. Well that sucks then.

    Guess Diener will be getting lots of summer league minutes.

    I would guess that our guys could be added to the summer league roster on the 9th.

    I don't see anyone doing anything for a team they are not proposed to go to.

    Why? I thought Artest played in summer league for us long after he was a veteran.

    But wasn't that because he missed however many games because of suspension? I'm not sure how it works exactly, but I was under the impression that you couldn't send anyone older than rookies and sophmores.

    Why would anybody drafted but not under a contract play in the summer league thus risking an injury?

    You're thinking of the development league. I've heard Curry is going to work out with NY's summer league team and might even play a couple games.

    During the NBA season?


    I think this is the worst part of the trade. What the hell are we supposed to do for 8 days? Will Bayless be part of our summer league team for the first two days?

    Vets can play in summer league. Bo Outlaw used to play in it every season.

    Hopefully, they can play though. I'd be pretty disappointed if they couldn't.

    I think you can send any one to summer league to get better. Build confidence or whatever they need to do. But yeah, if Rush and Hibbert will miss summer league I won't be very happy. I'd HATE to see Bayless play for us in summer league when he knows he's not gonna be here/doesn't wanna be here. I still don't get why Stern won't let the league just announce the trades when they get proposed. I know there's some rule or whatever but whyyy??

    They can pull a Greg Oden and play in pick-up games.

    Anyone want to start the league?

    Commish position is up for grabs.

    I changed the thread title to "Official Summer League Thread" to gather all the information about the Orlando league into one page.

    Btw, I don't think Travis will have recovered from his injury in time to compete in summer league either, so I'm struggling to find a reason to watch the games...

    Ya, there isn't much worth in it.. But still, we can see how some of our guys have progressed, such as Graham.. I can see him dominating this summer.
