Tentative plans are in place to hold a charity exhibition game Nov. 7 in Salt Lake City that would feature Jazz players versus NBA players, The Salt Lake Tribune has learned.
While some Jazz players have offered verbal commitments, the overall roster is still being finalized and plans for the game could fall through. However, everything from ticket sales to the venue are close to being finalized.
About six to eight Jazz players and six to eight NBA players, some with big names, could play in the contest if it becomes official.
