NEW ORLEANS – The New Orleans Pelicans today announced its mini-camp roster and schedule ahead of the MGM Resorts NBA Summer League 2018 in Las Vegas.

The Pelicans will hold a mini-camp from July 2-5 at the Ochsner Sports Performance Center in Metairie, La., with media availability following the morning sessions. Assistant Coach Kevin Hanson will serve as head coach of the Pelicans’ Summer League team.

New Orleans begins Summer League play on July 6 with the league kick-off matchup against the Toronto Raptors, followed by games against the Miami HEAT on July 7 and the Detroit Pistons on July 9 before beginning the single-elimination tournament.
