Several NBA players have committed to the August 20 Summer League showdown between the Goodman League, based in Washington D.C., and the Drew League, based in Los Angeles. The names that will play
for the Goodman League squad will include Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant, Minnesota Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley, Milwaukee Bucks guard Brandon Jennings and Sacramento Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins, according to NBA.com's David Aldridge.
UPDATE: Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post reports that Jennings will actually play for the Drew League squad.
San Antonio Spurs guard Gary Neal and Memphis Grizzlies draft pick Josh Selby will also be on the squad, and Denver Nuggets guard Ty Lawson and Portland Trail Blazers draft pick Nolan Smith are possibilities. There is also a chance Washington Wizards star John Wall makes an appearance. Goodman League commissioner Miles Rawls told Steinberg that he will play if he is in town.
It's still not clear who will play for the Drew League team, other than Jennings. The game is scheduled for August 20, with the location still to be determined.
