Tickets for the 2009 NBA Summer League, which takes place at the Thomas & Mack Center and Cox Pavilion from July 10-19, will go on sale to the public on Monday at the UNLV box office and on unlvtickets.com.
The summer league will feature 21 NBA teams with rosters full of rookies taken in next month's NBA draft, rookie free agents and other prospects.
The first 10 teams picking in the draft -- barring trades -- will appear in the summer league, headlined by the Los Angeles Clippers, who own the No. 1 pick and are expected to take Oklahoma forward Blake Griffin.
That means several other top prospects -- such as Spanish point guard Ricky Rubio and 19-year-old point guard Brandon Jennings -- will make their American professional debuts in Las Vegas.
Also returning to Vegas will be defending summer league MVP Jerryd Bayless of the Portland Trailblazers.
The 21 teams will play a total of 55 games over 10 days.
General admission tickets, which go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday, are $25 for adults, $15 for children ages 3-12 and seniors. Children 2 and under are free.
