The NBA Summer League, which runs July 11-21 at the Thomas & Mack Center, sports some impressive star power, with eight of the top 10 picks in last month’s NBA Draft scheduled to suit up, including the top two picks, Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker. And for locals, the league will be overflowing with familiar faces. Former UNLV standout Anthony Bennett will play for the Cleveland Cavaliers’ squad, as the 2013 No. 1 overall pick tries to re-ignite his career after a lackluster rookie season. Meanwhile, two Rebels from the 2013-14 squad, Khem Birch and Roscoe Smith, will try to impress after going undrafted in June.
