On Friday, the San Antonio Spurs revealed who will be taking the floor for them in the Summer League.

The NBA Summer League tips off on July 1, with games being played in Orlando, Utah and Las Vegas. The San Antonio Spurs will be part of this within the next few days.

On Friday, the Spurs officially announced their roster, which will consist of 14 players. Some players were on the 2016-17 NBA roster, while others were plucked from free agency. This includes James Robinson, who recently played overseas.

Below is the full roster, headlined by 2016 and 2017 first-round picks, Dejounte Murray and Derrick White, respectively:

Murray, Bryn Forbes, and Davis Bertans all were on the Spurs official roster last year. Rookies White and Jaron Blossomgame will also be on the roster as they get their first taste of the NBA. Blossomgame was selected in Round 2 of the NBA Draft earlier in June.

Cady Lalanne and Livio Jean-Charles are two guys fans might be familiar with. Lalanne was drafted by the Spurs in the second round of the 2015 NBA Draft. He played with the Austin Spurs during the 2015-2016 season and has played overseas with Capitanes de Arecibo and the Zhejiang Golden Bulls. Jean-Charles was drafted in the first round by San Antonio in the 2013 draft. He played with ASVEL from 2011-2016. He also played for the Austin Spurs during the 2016-2017 season before returning to ASVEL.

The Spurs have had success during summer league play. Lead by assistant Becky Hammon, they won the 2015 summer league championship defeating the Phoenix Suns 93-90 in the tournament championship game. Kyle Anderson was named MVP of the summer league, while Jonathan Simmons was named MVP of the championship.
