Chicago Bulls: How to watch the 2022 NBA Summer League

The NBA Finals have only just concluded and the Golden State Warriors’ championship celebrations are only just beginning. Still, preparations for the next season are already underway, as the NBA has officially announced the 2022 NBA Summer League schedule. Fortunately, that also means we’re less than three weeks away from more Chicago Bulls basketball.

The Bulls’ official Summer League schedule can be found on the team’s official site, and it includes games against the Dallas Mavericks, New York Knicks, Toronto Raptors, and Charlotte Hornets. This should be a good test of the Bulls’ young talent as the team prepares to round out the roster ahead of the 2022-23 season.

Here is the official slate of games for the Chicago Bulls in the 2022 NBA Summer League:

  • Friday, July 8: Bulls vs. Mavericks, 3 pm CT / 4 pm EST (ESPNU)
  • Sunday, July 10: Bulls vs. Knicks, 4 pm CT / 5 pm EST (ESPN2)
  • Tuesday, July 12: Bulls vs. Raptors, 4 pm CT / 5 pm EST (NBATV)
  • Thursday, July 14: Bulls vs. Hornets, 4 pm CT / 5 pm EST (ESPN2)

Fans will soon get a chance to see their favorite Chicago Bulls prospects in the 2022 NBA Summer League.

We can likely expect to see current Chicago Bulls players Ayo Dosunmu and Marko Simonovic once again take the court during Summer League play. This should ideally give them a better chance to showcase more of their skills and prove they deserve a solid spot in the rotation next season.

Although Patrick Williams and Coby White are the two youngest players on the roster, I’d wager it’s unlikely we see them suit up in the Summer League. Both players already have ample experience and don’t need to risk injury in Las Vegas, but I’d still be excited to see what either player do would do as the primary option.

Last year, Dosunmu (12.6 points per game) and Simonovic (12 points per game) were the 2nd and 3rd leading scorers on the roster, behind only the aforementioned Williams. The Bulls achieved a record of 2-3 in last year’s Summer League, so the team has some improvement to do if they wish to bring home a Summer League title.

Hopefully, this year’s 18th pick can come in and contribute right away. The Bulls have a lot of hope riding on this pick, and he’ll have ample time to shine early on. While we may still be a few weeks removed from seeing him in action, at least we’ll only have to wait two more days to find out who the mystery man taken at No. 18 actually is.
