The Las Vegas Summer League is merely two weeks away. Dell Demps and the New Orleans Pelicans staff are filling out a roster around Buddy Hield and Cheick Diallo to take the floor on July 8th. The first game, against an absolutely stacked Los Angeles Lakers squad, is scheduled to start at 9:30 PM central and will be televised on ESPN. Across the floor will be a collection of draft picks including second overall selection Brandon Ingram and 2015 second overall selection D'Angelo Russell.

Who is going to suit up for the Summer Pelicans? Keep checking back here as we update with the latest reports.

Larry Drew II was a star for the Pelicans last summer and should be tasked with getting Buddy Hield open looks behind the arc. He spent last season with Monaco in France.

Northwestern center Alex Olah who played with Tre Demps, son of Dell Demps, is also on the team.

NC State combo guard accepted an offer soon after the draft last night.

Nick Minnerathwho played with the Canton Charge in the NBA D-League last season, should provide even more shooting.

He Tianju could make a second straight appearance.
