NBA to Stream More Than 150 Games from Premier Pro-Am Basketball Leagues This Summer on NBA App
The NBA announces that premier pro-am basketball from various leagues – including Drew League, Miami Pro League and AEBL, among others – will stream globally on the NBA App and NBA.com beginning with the Drew League on Saturday, July 1 at 2:00 p.m. ET.
Fans will have access to pro-am content, including live games regularly featuring star NBA players, across NBA social and digital platforms. The addition of these top pro-am leagues into NBA App programming builds upon the NBA’s efforts to engage with fans throughout the offseason and widen its scope of basketball content.
Last summer, the Drew League, now celebrating its 50th anniversary, was streamed globally on the NBA App, marking the first time NBA platforms featured a pro-am league. NBA App coverage of the Drew League was memorably tipped off by LeBron James (Los Angeles Lakers) and DeMar DeRozan (Chicago Bulls) teaming up. The Miami Pro League and AEBL, both in their 10th year, featured appearances from various NBA players including Donovan Mitchell (Cleveland Cavaliers), Darius Garland (Cleveland Cavaliers), Obi Toppin (New York Knicks), Bam Adebayo (Miami Heat), Jose Alvarado (New Orleans Pelicans) and more.
In addition to the coverage of offseason basketball, the NBA will support pro-am community efforts through the distribution of Jr. NBA kits for youth basketball players in each local community. Details regarding the full game schedule and coverage are available on NBA.com, NBA social and the NBA App.
As previously announced, all 76 games from the NBA 2K24 Summer League 2023 in Las Vegas (July 7-17) will air live on television on ESPN networks (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPNews) or NBA TV and will also be available to stream on the ESPN App or NBA App. Games from the 2023 California Classic in Sacramento (July 3 and 5) and 2023 Salt Lake City Summer League (July 3, 5 and 6) will also be televised on ESPN, ESPN2 or NBA TV and will be streamed on the ESPN App or NBA App.
