Our first chance to see Giannis Antetokounmpo, Nate Wolters and the Bucks' top draft pick together on the same court is less than a month away.

It looks like we won't have to wait long to see the top two picks in the NBA Draft go head-to-head.

The NBA released the 2014 Las Vegas Summer League schedule on Thursday, most notably featuring an opening night showdown between the Cavs and Bucks at 7 pm on Friday, July 11. The Bucks also face the Phoenix Suns on Sunday July 13 (9 pm) and Utah Jazz on Monday, July 14 (9:30), with the remainder of the tournament-style schedule to be determined by the results of the opening five days. Each team will play a minimum of five games, with the championship game on Monday, July 21. All of the games will be available to watch live or archived on NBA.com with NBATV broadcasting the Bucks' first two games live.

The final Bucks' roster will be announced sometime after the draft and is expected to feature Giannis Antetokounmpo, Nate Wolters, and whomever the Bucks end up with on draft night. Aside from the #2 overall pick, the Bucks also own the 31st, 36th and 48th overall picks, though it seems unlikely that they will keep all three of their second rounders. D-League call-up Chris Wright--whose 14/15 contract is not guaranteed--would also seem likely to join the team.
