LAS VEGAS (AP) — NBA Summer League is going international this year.

The Chinese and Croatian national teams will join all 30 NBA clubs at this year's tournament in Las Vegas, taking place from July 5 through July 15. China sent a team to Summer League in 2007, and Croatia will play in the event for the first time.

It's still unknown who will be on China's roster, though it's likely that the event will be part of the team's preparations for the FIBA World Cup — which will be held in China from Aug. 31 through Sept. 15.

Croatia is not one of the 32 teams that will play in the World Cup.
