These days, the NBA never seems to stop, as there’s always something going on even after the season is over without much downtime, which is great for fans of the league.
Only a few weeks ago, Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets won the franchise’s first NBA title after battling it out with Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat in five games.
The 2023 NBA Draft took place shortly after the NBA Finals, with the league seeing perhaps its next superstar get drafted in Victor Wembanyama, who was selected No. 1 overall by the San Antonio Spurs.
A few days ago, NBA free agency got underway with a flurry of movement around the league, along with superstars James Harden and Damian Lillard requesting to be traded.
Now, the league begins offseason games in Sacramento, Salt Lake City, and Las Vegas, with the California Classic and Summer League in Utah starting on Monday, via NBA on ESPN.

Unfortunately, Wembanyama won’t be playing in the California Classic at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, but he’s supposed to suit up for the Spurs during the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas later this week, which will be must-see TV for basketball fans.
Although the league’s No. 1 pick won’t be on display on Monday, there will be some high draft picks on the hardwood, with Chet Holmgren of the Oklahoma City Thunder being arguably the star attraction after he missed all of last season with a foot injury.
Even though this won’t be top-level basketball, it should be entertaining, with some of the league’s future stars trying to make a name for themselves.NEXT: Fans React To Today's Anthony Edwards News
