The schedule has been released for the inaugural California Classic Summer League, which will feature a trio of games for the young Warriors.

Starting on July 2, the Warriors — plus the Sacramento Kings, Los Angeles Lakers, and Miami Heat — will play six games featuring rookies selected in the 2018 draft, sophomores and players competing for spots on NBA and G League regular-season rosters.

Here's how the schedule shakes out for the Dubs:

*July 2, 6 pm: Warriors vs. Heat

*July 3, 8 pm: Warriors vs. Kings

*July 5, 12pm: Warriors vs. Lakers

Youngsters like Jordan Bell, Damian Jones, Chris Boucher — along with the draft picks — figure to be the key players for the Warriors summer squad in the state capitol.

All the games will be played at the Golden 1 Center, home of the Kings. As is the case in other summer circuits, the clubs will play 10-minute quarters.

“We’re excited to welcome basketball fans, teams and the NBA to tip-off the summer league season in Sacramento and enjoy the best that Northern California has to offer,” Kings Owner and Chairman Vivek Ranadivé said in a statement. “Golden 1 Center and Downtown Commons are a perfect setting for NBA action, blending entertainment, technology, community and basketball.”
