PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. – The NBA G League released the 26-game schedule for their annual Showcase Thursday morning.

The Northern Arizona Suns will play the Erie BayHawks on Wednesday, Jan. 10 at 11 a.m. MT and the Canton Charge on Friday, Jan. 12 at 10 a.m. MT.

The Raptors 905 will host the 14th NBA G League Showcase in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, for the second straight year.

For the first time, the NBA G League Showcase will be played across two courts: the Hershey Centre, home of the Raptors 905, and the adjoining Mississauga SportZone complex. The NAZ Suns will play the BayHawks at the SportZone complex and the Charge at the Hershey Centre.

The NAZ Suns’ full 50-game schedule can be found at here.

NBA G League Showcase 2018, the league’s primary in-season scouting event, is expected to draw personnel from all 30 NBA teams.

Last year, NAZ Suns forward/center Johnny O’Bryant earned a NBA D-League Showcase Honorable Mention after averaging 22.0 points on 52.9 percent shooting, 7.0 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 1.5 blocks. His great play led to him earning the first GATORADE Call-Up in Northern Arizona Suns history, as he signed with the Denver Nuggets just days after the Showcase concluded.

During or immediately following the last 13 Showcases, more than 50 players earned Call-Ups to the NBA.
