One of the nation's biggest summer basketball events is returning to New York.
Under Armour announced on Wednesday morning that the Elite 24 will take place at Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 2, which is located along the East River, on Aug. 20. This marks the fourth straight year the game will be played in Brooklyn, and the third straight year it will be held at Pier 2.
For the second straight year, the event is NBA-sanctioned, meaning personnel from all 30 teams are expected to attend.
Something of an unofficial end to summer basketball-wise, the Elite 24 is often held at exotic, off-the-beaten-path venues. Before this three-year run at Pier 2, Under Armour created a makeshift court at the Tobacco Warehouse under the Brooklyn Bridge.
Elite 24 will follow the third annual UA NEXT game (5:15 p.m.), which features some of the top freshmen and sophomores in the nation. On Aug. 19, Pier 2 will host the annual slam dunk and three-point contests.
Rosters for Elite 24 have yet to be released. In the past, they have been announced soon after the first week of August.
Last year's Elite 24 came under a brighter spotlight, in large part because of one of Under Armour's chief competitors, Nike. The latter created an event in the Bahamas designed to draw players away from Elite 24.
Among the players who shifted from UA to Nike that weekend were top 2016 recruits Harry Giles and Jayson Tatum, both of whom will attend Duke this fall, and both of whom are projected top-4 picks in the 2017 NBA Draft according to DraftExpress.
Another top-end 2016 recruit, Josh Jackson, a member of Under Armour-sponsored 1Nation, opted for Elite 24. His mother, Apples Jones, cited the opportunity to play in front of NBA scouts as the reason.
