With the NBA Finals between the Denver Nuggets and Miami Heat nearing its final conclusion, the basketball world will soon shift its attention to the offseason. One of the most exciting aspects of the summer are all the pro-am leagues present throughout the United States, with perhaps none more relevant than the Drew League in Los Angeles. Dallas Mavericks superstar Kyrie Irving stopped by for the opening weekend of the high-profile tournament and brought with him a major announcement.
Kyrie Irving officially started the Drew League hype this summer by declaring his intention to take part in this year’s summer tournament:

Irving was talking to Drew League commisioner Chaniel Smiley when cameras caught him saying he intended to play in the league this summer. This is obviously a positive development for Drew, which is hoping for more superstar power this summer. Last season the likes of LeBron James, Trae Young and DeMar DeRozan, among others, graced the Drew League with their presence, and it was a resounding success.
According to NBA reporter Law Murray of The Athletic, Kyrie Irving is expected to make his Drew League debut in July:
“Kyrie Irving is expected to make his Drew League debut next month with Nation Wide Souljas.”, Murray wrote in his tweet.
