Earlier today, the Memphis Grizzlies announced their Summer League roster…which will not include Ed Davis, contrary to the thought processes of some people. (Seriously, click that link. It’s magical and awesome and hilarious.)
The SL team will be coached by Bob Thornton, as well as Lloyd Pierce and newcomer Duane Ticknor, in addition to Steve Jones and Jason March. The roster includes expected players like Tony Wroten, Jamaal Franklin, Janis Timma, Jon Leuer, Donté Greene, and Willie Reed. Joining them will be some familiar college players like Matt Howard (Butler) and Vander Blue (Marquette), as well as Jack Cooley (Notre Dame) and Laurence Bowers (Missouri). Former Milwaukee Buck, Darington Hobson, will suit up for Memphis, and overseas product Gerald Robinson will finish out the roster.
The full schedule for the Las Vegas Summer League can be found on NBA.com.
The league opens up on July 12, and the Grizzlies will play their first of three preliminary games the following day. Following that, they will be seeded into a tournament that will determine the first-ever Summer League champion
