The Jazz announced their schedule for the Orlando Pro Summer League, with games to be played July 7-12 at Amway Center. The annual event expanded to 10 team this summer, with a new format that will determine a champion on July 12.
From the release:
Under the new format, each team will play five games over the six-day event, with a championship day being played on the final day of the league. A point system will establish the standings leading up to the final day, with seven points awarded each game based on: three points for winning the game and one point for winning each quarter (in the event of a tied quarter, each team will receive 0.5 points). In the event of ties in seeding heading into championship day, three tiebreakers will be in place: 1) total point differential; 2) total points allowed; 3) coin flip.
Here is the Jazz's schedule (all times MT):
July 7 • Jazz vs. Miami, 11 a.m.
July 8 • No game
July 9 • Jazz at Houston, 1 p.m.
July 10 • Jazz at Brooklyn, 9 a.m.
July 11 • Jazz vs. Indiana, 9 a.m.
July 12 • "Championship Day" (opponent and time TBD)
The Jazz have not yet said what players might participate at the Summer League. Last year, Alec Burks and Enes Kanter were among Jazz players on the roster. This year, Kanter is out due to April shoulder surgery. Late-season roster addition Jerel McNeal will likely participate, as would any players the Jazz draft on June 27. They have pick Nos. 14, 21 and 46.
