The Portland Trail Blazers are officially part of the 24 team field that will be playing in the 2014 edition of the NBA’s Las Vegas Summer League.

This year’s summer league will take place from July 11th through the 21st. Games will be played at the Thomas & Mack Center and the COX Pavillion on the campus of University of Nevada at Las Vegas (UNLV).

Each team will play in three preliminary round games from the 11th through the 15th and then they will go to the knockout rounds where eventually a champion will be crowned.

Last year the Golden State Warriors took home the first ever Las Vegas Summer League championship.

Neil Olshey said in the exit interviews that he expects Joel Freeland, Will Barton, Thomas Robinson, Meyers Leonard, CJ McCollum and Allen Crabbe all to participate in summer league.

Here are the other 23 teams that will be competing from the release from the NBA:
