Final roster set for Jimmer Fredette's NBA lockout exhibition game
The final roster for former BYU 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 confirmed participants 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, and undrafted free agents Xavier Silas (Northern Illinois) and Chris Wright (Dayton) will join previously announced participants Fredette (Sacramento), Kemba Walker (Charlotte), Kawhi Leonard (San Antonio), Nolan Smith (Portland) and Jackson Emery (ex-BYU guard).
Tickets can be purchased at the venue's box office, website and by phone.
A game scheduled for Sept. 21 at the Maverik Center in West Valley City was canceled last week. Tickets purchased for that event will be refunded or can be exchanged for a comparable Provo ticket.
