The Chicago Bulls will be among 22 participating teams that will take to the court in Las Vegas for the 2013 NBA Summer League, the NBA announced today.

This year’s event promises to take NBA action to a whole new level. A championship will be on the line as preliminary games will precede a single elimination tournament, which will lead to the crowning of an eventual champion.

21 NBA teams with squads featuring eight of the top 10 selections from the 2013 NBA draft, and a team of NBA D-League Select players will compete for the inaugural NBA Summer League title. The competition will be held at the Thomas & Mack Center and COX Pavilion on the campus of the University of Nevada Las Vegas.

The ninth NBA Summer League in Vegas tips off on Friday, July 12 and will conclude with a championship game on Monday, July 22. All participating teams will play a minimum of five games. After the conclusion of games on July 16, all teams will have completed three games and will be seeded for single-elimination tournament play that will lead to a champion being crowned on July 22.

At last year’s event, Bulls guard Marquis Teague made his professional debut, while Bulls small forward Jimmy Butler and power forward Malcolm Thomas were named to the All-Summer League Team.

NBA TV will televise a full slate of NBA Summer League games. The complete schedule will be announced at a later date.

Bulls' Noah Comes Nowhere Close To Making Jumper

Joakim Noah is a tremendous hustler and a gritty basketball player who does all the dirty work. That being said, this jump shot was terrible. This was the worst attempt that I've ever seen in my life and I don't expect that Noah will be shooting any more than layups for a good while.
