How to watch former Auburn players in the NBA Summer League

After the best draft in program history, Auburn is well represented in this year’s NBA Summer League.

The Tigers now have seven players featured on NBA rosters, and up to five could participate in the Summer League: Jabari Smithwho became the highest-drafted player in Auburn history to the Rockets (No. 3 overall); Walker Kesslerwho is now on his way to Utah after the Timberwolves, who took him in the first round, made a deal; Sharife Cooper and JT Thor, former second-round picks entering their sophomore seasons with Atlanta and Charlotte, respectively; and Jared Harperwho is entering his fourth season in the league after appearing in five games for the Pelicans last year.

The 2022 Summer League will be held in Las Vegas, San Francisco and Salt Lake City. Bruce Pearl said last month he hopes to make it to a few games to see his former players.

It’s still unclear if Kessler will play for the Jazz this month. If so, he won’t be able to do so until a day after the Salt Lake City Summer League begins — when the moratorium on traded players on his deal from Memphis has expired.

In addition to the schedule below, the listed former Tigers could have the opportunity to participate in the Summer League Playoffs on July 16th and 17th.
