Former Buckeyes Brice Sensabaugh and Justice Sueing will soon display their skills on the NBA Summer League stage, representing their respective teams in at least seven games throughout July. 

Although they shared the floor as teammates at Ohio State, Sensabaugh and Sueing will start their professional careers on opposite ends of the court.  The two Buckeyes will oppose each other on Monday when the Utah Jazz, who selected Sensabaugh with the No. 28 overall pick in 2023 NBA Draft on June 22 and Oklahoma City Thunder, who added Sueing to their summer league roster June 23, face off at the Delta Center in Salt Lake City at 9 p.m. The game will be broadcasted on NBA TV. 

Sensabaugh was reportedly held out of Thursday’s Jazz practice due to left knee surgery recovery, but he is expected to compete in the NBA Summer League. 

Following the matchup against his former teammate, Sensabaugh’s Jazz will host the Philadelphia 76ers on July 5 and the Memphis Grizzlies on July 6. Both games will tip off at 9 p.m. and will be aired on NBA TV. Sueing, who will use this opportunity to fight for a NBA roster spot in the fall, will match up against the same teams on opposite dates, with the Thunder playing Memphis on July 5 at Philadelphia on July 6, both starting at 7 p.m. on NBA TV and ESPN2. 

After the three-game schedule in Salt Lake City, the Jazz and Thunder will then head to Las Vegas starting on July 8, where they will play at least five more games. All 30 NBA teams will compete at the Thomas & Mack Center and Cox Pavilion, with the top four teams based on winning percentage advancing to a single-elimination playoff starting on July 16. The remaining teams will play a consolation game on either July 15 or July 16. 

Sensabaugh’s Jazz will kick off their Las Vegas slate on July 8 against the Los Angeles Clippers. From there, the first-round pick will face the Minnesota Timberwolves on July 10, the reigning NBA champion Denver Nuggets on July 12 and the Phoenix Suns on July 14. The four games will begin at 10 p.m., 9:30 p.m. and 11 p.m., respectively, and will air on ESPN2, ESPNU and NBA TV. 

As for Sueing, his Thunder also resume play on July 8 against the Dallas Mavericks, followed by matchups with the Houston Rockets on July 11, the Indiana Pacers on July 12, and the Washington Wizards on July 14. These games will tip off at 3:30 p.m. 6:30 p.m., 7:30 p.m. and 5 p.m., respectively, on ESPN2, NBA TV and ESPNU.
