A two-game exhibition series hosted by former Brigham Young standout Jimmer Fredette has been consolidated into a single contest Sept. 22 at the Marriott Center in Provo. As a result, a previously announced game Sept. 21 at the Maverik Center in Salt Lake City has been cancelled. Tickets purchased for the SLC event can either be refunded or exchanged for a comparable Provo ticket.

Fredette (Sacramento), Kemba Walker (Charlotte), Kawhi Leonard (San Antonio), Nolan Smith (Portland) and Jackson Emery (ex-BYU) are still scheduled to appear at the Provo game. More athletes will be announced Monday, but no Jazz players are expected.

"In the best interest of creating an exciting basketball atmosphere and great fan experience, we are consolidating into a one night only game in Provo," Octagon sports agency executive Tom George said in a news release. "We apologize to any Salt Lake City ticket holders and will quickly accommodate them for the inconvenience. With Jimmer and the cast of other top rookies, this game in Provo will certainly be a great environment for competitive basketball that fans will not want to miss." 

Tickets for the Provo contest can be purchased at the venue's box office, website and by phone.
