The Phoenix Suns will be joined by a record 23 other teams when they take part in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas this year.

The 11-day, 67-game league will kick off July 7 and feature 10 lottery teams along with all four conference finalists.

Last season the Suns had a great showing in the Summer League, going 4-2 and making it to the quarterfinals, where they fell to the Timberwolves 93-83.

Last season’s Summer Suns saw two players make an All-NBA Summer League team, including Alan Williams, who led the Las Vegas Summer League in rebounds with 11.2, and rookie Tyler Ulis, who finished third in assists with 6.3 per game. The guard also hit a long buzzer-beater in the quarterfinals.

The action will take place at both the Thomas & Mack Center and the Cox Pavilion in Las Vegas and will be broadcast across ESPN, NBA TV and NBA social media.
