Las Vegas Rumors

The Orlando Sentinel reported Saturday night that the Orlando Magic is discontinuing its annual professional summer league to play in the Las Vegas Pro Summer League that’s become a mainstay on the NBA’s off-season calendar. “It’s disappointing,” Van Gundy said before the Pistons faced the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday night.
Coach Erik Spoelstra said in advance of Sunday’s game against the Pacers that the Heat have not thought about starting a replacement summer league in place of the cancelled Orlando league. “I think the thought with the league is the Las Vegas Summer League is getting bigger,” Spoelstra said. “The majority of the teams go out there like us and you end up having close to two weeks of games there anyway. So we’ll just try to maximize that and see if we can get some more games. And I don’t know if we’ll be able to match the amount of games that we’ve had by doing both [Orlando and Las Vegas], but there are pros and cons.”
