Kevin Durant, Brandon Jennings, Others Playing In Summer League Showdown

UPDATE: Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post reports that Brandon Jennings will actually play for the Drew League team.

The NBA lockout is ongoing, and depending on how long it lasts, it could be a very long time before we see NBA players playing again. That's why everyone's eyes and ears should perk up after reading David Aldridge's report of all the NBA players scheduled to play in a summer league showdown between Washington D.C.'s Goodman League and Los Angeles' Drew League on August 20.

According to Aldridge, Kevin Durant, Michael Beasley and DeMarcus Cousins are already in for the Goodman League team, and players like Ty Lawson and Gary Neal could join them. The Drew League team is less settled other than Jennings, but you'd have to imagine it'll include Baron Davis, who (along with Durant) is handling logistics and recruiting for the game.

That's not it either. There's a chance that Washington Wizards star point guard John Wall will also play, depending on whether he's in town that weekend. Aldridge also throws out names like Ron Artest, DeMar DeRozan, James Harden and Tyreke Evans as players who could make up the Drew League squad. In other words, it's not that far removed from an All-Star Game. Well, maybe a little.

The game is expected to take place on August 20 at Georgetown University's McDonough Arena in D.C. Mark your calendars.

UPDATE: Goodman League commissioner Miles Rawls told SB Nation that he is working to get the game televised as well.
