Utah Jazz To Host Salt Lake City Summer League Beginning In August
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Jazz announced on Monday morning that they are bringing back the Salt Lake City Summer League beginning in August.
The Salt Lake City Summer League will be played on August 3, 4 and 6 at Vivint Arena. It will be a round-robin summer showcase with four teams participating.
The Utah Jazz will have two teams participating along with the San Antonio Spurs and the Memphis Grizzlies. Each team will play three games that will be doubleheaders on those three days.
Tickets can be purchased at utahjazz.com or through the Utah Jazz mobile app.
The last time the Salt Lake City Summer League was played was in 2019. It was canceled as was all the summer leagues in the NBA in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Basketball is back this summer in Salt Lake City in a casual, affordable and fun atmosphere at Vivint Arena,” said Jonathan Rinehart, summer league executive director. “We are excited to watch the younger players from two Jazz teams along with the Grizzlies and Spurs play in daily doubleheaders. Summer hoops are a great tradition in Utah and a wonderful community event.”
The schedule for the games, along with radio and TV broadcast details will be provided at a later date. Two important events will take place first with the NBA Draft Lottery being held on June 22 and the NBA Draft on July 29.
The young players for the Jazz in the Summer League will get more experience with the team planning on participating in the MGM Resorts NBA Summer League 2021 from August 8-17 at the Thomas & Mack Center and Cox Pavilion on the campus of UNLV.
