The NBA Summer League is in Las Vegas, Nevada every July. The Summer League is a pro basketball league run by the NBA just following the NBA Draft. Teams consist of players who have been in the NBA for 3 years or fewer as well as newly drafted talent. It gives Rookies a chance to practice against other players that are new to the NBA. Games are held throughout the ten days at Thomas & Mack Center and Cox Pavilion on the UNLV Campus.
Attendees currently employed by a team or registered NBAPA agents are invited at a discount due to the fact they might want to skip some panels.

Cost: $100-$250 and includes an optional Friday night welcome reception, Saturday networking lunch, Saturday pass to all NBA Summer League games, official name badge, attendee packet, and all conference sessions. College credit for both graduate and undergraduates is available.
