    Default Pacers not participating in Summer League?

    I don't know anything for sure, but this press release is the only thing I can find on NBA.com about the summer league. It doesn't say anything about the Pacers.

    2009 NBA Summer League presented by EA Sports announced

    By Official Release
    Posted Jun 23 2009 9:34AM

    NEW YORK, June 22, 2009 -- Twenty-one NBA teams, including the 2009 NBA Champion Los Angeles Lakers, will compete in this year's NBA Summer League presented by EA SPORTS in a 55-game schedule that was announced today. A team of NBA Development League Select players will also participate in the action taking place at the Thomas & Mack Center and the COX Pavilion on the campus of the University of Nevada Las Vegas July 10-19.

    The showdown in the desert will tip off on Friday, July 10, with four games scheduled at COX Pavilion. Teams slated for action on opening day include the Lakers, Dallas Mavericks, Detroit Pistons, Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets, Milwaukee Bucks, Sacramento Kings and Toronto Raptors.

    "NBA Summer League provides incoming rookies an opportunity to begin the acclimation process to the NBA while also giving teams the chance to evaluate free agents and provide further training for veteran players." said Stu Jackson, Executive Vice President of NBA Basketball Operations.

    This year's action could include 24 of the 30 first round picks from the 2009 NBA Draft, which will be held June 25, including the Los Angeles Clippers', Memphis Grizzlies' and Oklahoma City Thunder selections -- the first, second and third picks, respectively. NBA stars who have participated in recent NBA Summer League presented by EA Sports action include Memphis' O.J. Mayo (2008), Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant (2007), Portland's Brandon Roy (2006), New Orleans' Chris Paul (2005) and Orlando's Jameer Nelson (2004).

    "NBA Summer League is a great opportunity for fans to get an up-close and personal look at the league's newest stars in a family-friendly atmosphere," said Gail Hunter, NBA Senior Vice President of Events and Attractions.

    Joining the above-mentioned teams scheduled to appear in Vegas this summer are the Chicago Bulls, Cleveland Cavaliers, Denver Nuggets, Minnesota Timberwolves, New Orleans Hornets, New York Knicks, Phoenix Suns, Portland Trail Blazers, San Antonio Spurs and Washington Wizards.

    Tickets for the 2009 NBA Summer League Presented by EA SPORTS are on sale and can be purchased by calling 702-739-FANS, through UNLVtickets.com or by visiting the Thomas & Mack Center Box Office and UNLV Ticket Outlets.

    Don't we go through this every year? For some reason the Orlando Summer League folks (though their Summer League is first) seem to pull it together last minute - or at least do publicity relatively late. There are usually only eight teams that go to Florida instead of Nevada, but Florida has Dante and Galante so... I think it's a win for us.

    It's been Orlando for awhile, ever since I can remember. I look forward to the play by play guys, very ridiculous. I hope they do, Brush and Roy missed out last year, I really want to see TH play.

    Also, if we don't field a team in one of the leagues, we can have our Rookies play with someone else's team. We've done that in the past...Rocky Mountain Revue, IIRC>
