Hutchison And Webb in Vegas For NBA Summer League
Bronco alumni Chandler Hutchison (Chicago Bulls) and James Webb III (Brooklyn Nets) will both compete in Las Vegas at the NBA Summer League for their respective teams beginning Friday, July 6.
Upon conclusion of the three-game preliminary schedule, each team will then be seeded in a tournament-style circuit that will determine the 2018 MGM Resorts NBA Summer League champion in the championship game on July 17. Every team is guaranteed to play at least five games.
Hutchison – the 22nd pick in last month's NBA Draft – will play his first game for the Bulls, Saturday, July 7 at 7:30 p.m. MT against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The game will broadcast on ESPN2.
Chicago will then take on the Los Angeles Lakers (Sunday, July 8 – 9:30 p.m. MT) on ESPN2 and wrap up with the Atlanta Hawks (Tuesday, July 10 – 4 p.m. MT), which will air on NBA TV.
Hutchison will be joined on the Bulls' roster by two players who Boise State faced in the 2017-18 season: UTEP's Matt Williams and Loyola's Donte Ingram.
Webb recently completed the 2017-18 season on a two-way contract with the Brooklyn Nets. He played in 10 games with Brooklyn while spending the majority of the season with the team's G League affiliate, the Long Island Nets. He averaged 14.3 points and 6.6 rebounds while also shooting 37 percent from beyond the arc in 19 games for Long Island. He came to the Nets midseason after starting the season with the Delaware 87ers (Philadelphia 76ers).
Brooklyn will open the league with a game against the Orlando Magic, Friday, July 6, which is set to tip at 3 p.m. MT on NBA TV.
Webb and the Nets will then face the Oklahoma City Thunder (Saturday, July 7 – 5 p.m. MT) and the Minnesota Timberwolves (Monday, July 9 – 9 p.m. MT). The game against the Thunder will air on NBA TV while the game against the Timberwolves will be on ESPNU.
