The Basketball Tournament, a single-elimination event in which the winning team will earn $1 million, will feature more than 40 former NBA players, including Royce White, Nate Robinson and Brian Scalabrine. The event began a year ago with a prize of $500,000 and featured 55 teams. This season, the field will include 97 teams after the open application process closed last week. The tournament will begin July 10-12, and the field will be split up into four regions: Philadelphia (Northeast), Atlanta (South), Chicago (Midwest) and Los Angeles (West).
