Charlotte will open up summer league action Friday night in Las Vegas against San Antonio. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Bismack Biyombo, Jeff Taylor and rookie Cody Zeller headline the roster for the Bobcats this summer — seemingly one of the stronger top-4 of any roster in summer league.
This year’s summer league will have a more interesting + fun twist, as there will be a single-elimination tournament after every team participating completes their 5-game preliminary schedule.
Some of the notable names on the Charlotte roster include Brandon Triche (Syracuse) Rodney McGruder (Kansas State), Troy Daniels (VCU) and Henry Sims (Georgetown). McGruder was 4th in scoring in the Big 12 last season at a 15.7 PPG mark. Daniels was 4th in the entire nation in 3PM (117) + shot 40.6% from distance.
Below is the full roster for summer league and the preliminary 5-game schedule.
