Schedule announced for NBA G League Showcase 2018

The NBA G League announced today the 26-game schedule for NBA G League Showcase 2018.  The premier in-season scouting event will feature the league’s 26 teams playing two regular-season games each from Jan. 10-13 in Mississauga, Ontario, home of Raptors 905.

For the first time, the NBA G League Showcase will be played across two courts: the Hershey Centre, home of Raptors 905, and the adjoining Mississauga SportZone complex.  Game times will be staggered to allow fans and scouts to see all the action.

The 14th NBA G League Showcase will feature seven games on each of the first three days and five games on the final day.  The event tips off with a matchup between the Santa Cruz Warriors and Grand Rapids Drive at 12 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Jan. 10.

Raptors 905 will play its first game of the Showcase on Thursday, Jan. 11, when the team faces the Warriors at 12 p.m. ET.   The event host will also meet the Sioux Falls Skyforce on Saturday, Jan. 13 at 12 p.m. ET, the first game of the final day.  All 26 of the games are between cross-conference opponents.

Designed for NBA scouts and team personnel to evaluate up-and-coming talent, the NBA G League Showcase has long been a springboard to the NBA for players.  More than 50 players earned Call-Ups to the NBA during or immediately following the last 13 Showcases.
