The roster for former Brigham Young standout Jimmer Fredette's upcoming NBA lockout exhibition game has been set.
Charlotte's Bismack Biyombo, Denver's Kenneth Faried and Washington's Chris Singleton were among 11 players announced Monday as being confirmed to participate in the event, which will be held Sept. 22 at the Marriott Center in Provo.
Milwaukee's Tobias Harris, Sacramento's Tyler Honeycutt, Golden State's Charles Jenkins, Minnesota's Malcolm Lee, Detroit's Vernon Macklin, the Kings' Isaiah Thomas, Xavier Silas and Chris Wright will also join previously announced participants Fredette (Sacramento), Kemba Walker (Charlotte), Kawhi Leonard (San Antonio), Nolan Smith (Portland) and Jackson Emery (ex-BYU).
Tickets can be purchased at the venue's box office, website and by phone.
A game scheduled for Sept. 21 in Salt Lake City was cancelled last week. Tickets purchased for that event will be refunded or can be exchanged for a comparable Provo ticket.
