The Kings announced today that the annual California Classic Summer League will be returning to Sacramento this year on July 3rd and 5th for two days of triple-headers. This year will also mark the first time additional teams will be brought in as the San Antonio Spurs and Charlotte Hornets (owners of the #1 and #2 picks in the 2023 NBA Draft respectively) will join the Sacramento Kings, Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat.
That means that it’s possible that Victor Wembanyama, the almost certain #1 pick and perhaps the most heralded prospect since LeBron James, could make his debut in Sacramento. It’s also important to note that Wembanyama is also currently playing in his league’s playoffs in France and could be held out of this tournament by the Spurs in order to get some rest and not risk injury.
The Kings will play two games, the first on July 3rd at 7pm against the Warriors and the second on July 5th against the Heat. Sacramento owns the 24th, 38th and 54th picks as of now and could also possibly bring out Keegan Murray to play.
Each day will feature a triple-header matchup with all six teams participating. 👀 pic.twitter.com/6cJeIxFSmA
