Each season, the NBA D-League holds an event specifically geared toward NBA general managers and representatives from all 30 NBA teams meant to give players a unique platform for their skills. The NBA D-League Showcase takes place during a time in the season when NBA teams may be struggling with injury concerns or otherwise looking for a unique injection of talent.
Scheduled for January 18-22 in Mississauga, Ontario, home of the Toronto Raptor’s affiliate, Raptors 905, this year’s event is the thirteenth edition and will feature 22 games. During and after the weekend some participants will likely sign 10-day contracts as NBA teams scramble to fill roster slots with potential talent. Some notable former Showcase players include Hassan Whiteside, Rudy Gobert, JaMychal Green and Sean Kilpatrick.
Of the 22 games, a record 14 will be nationally televised on either ESPNU or NBATV. Below is the full game and broadcast schedule, including the televised games.
