SALT LAKE CITY — There will be a few changes in the fifth year of the Utah Jazz-hosted Summer League this July.
First off, the name will be different. After being called the Utah Jazz Summer League for the last four years, the event has been rebranded as the Salt Lake City Summer League.
And with that, comes a new design.
The event will use a modified City Edition court with a new SLC Summer League logo at center court.
The four-team, six-game event will run from July 1-3 at Vivint Smart Home Arena and will feature the Jazz, San Antonio Spurs, Memphis Grizzlies and Cleveland Cavaliers. Each team will play three games as part of daily doubleheaders.
The Cavs and Grizzlies both hold lottery picks in next month’s draft (the NBA Draft Lottery will be held on May 14). In the last four years, the Salt Lake City league has provided the first NBA glimpses of Donovan Mitchell, Ben Simmons, Jayson Tatum, Jaren Jackson Jr.and Trae Young, among many others.
“Salt Lake City loves basketball and has a tremendous year-round hoops community. Summer is no exception as evident by our record attendance last year,” summer league executive director Jonathan Rinehart said in a statement. “We seek to capture the essence of summer with its casual, accessible and fun atmosphere."
Tickets for the three-day event go on sale on May 13. Tickets can be purchased online at www.slcsummerleague.com, on the Utah Jazz mobile app, by calling (801) 355-DUNK or visiting the Vivint Smart Home Arena box office during regular business hours.
