Josh Gross
A plethora of coaches, gms, presidents of clubs, agents and scouts showed up for the first Las Vegas ESL and the players did not disappoint them. Every player here in Vegas played with heart and determination as they were all trying to win for their respective teams. We expect quite a few of the players from this Eurobasket Summer League to sign contracts with European or minor league clubs, including the NBDL. Eurobasket would like to thank all the players, fans and team personnel who attended Las Vegas and we look forward to another strong Las Vegas ESL which runs from July 18-20.
