Charlotte, NC – The Charlotte Hornets announced today the team’s 15-man roster for the 2017 Orlando Mountain Dew Pro Summer League beginning July 1. Hornets assistant coach Stephen Silas will serve as head coach of the team’s summer league squad. The team’s full roster is listed below.
Prior to leaving for Orlando, the Hornets will hold a four-day mini-camp at the Novant Health Training Center inside Spectrum Center from Tuesday, June 27 – Friday, June 30. Media is advised to arrive each day by 11:30 a.m. Media attending practices should enter through the media/employee entrance on the Fifth Street side of Spectrum Center and proceed to the Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina Home Court area to await a member of the communications staff.
Following the mini-camp in Charlotte, the Hornets will open their Mountain Dew Orlando Pro Summer League schedule on Saturday, July 1 against the Miami Heat squad at 11 a.m. Charlotte will also play Indiana (Sunday, July 2 at 5 p.m.), Oklahoma City (Tuesday, July 4 at 1 p.m.) and Detroit (Wednesday, July 5 at 3 p.m.). The Hornets’ fifth game will be on Thursday, July 6, against an opponent to be determined by the standings after the first four games.
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 eight points awarded each game based on: four points for winning the game and one point for winning a 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.
NBA TV will televise all games of the Mountain Dew Orlando Pro Summer League, including all five games on the Charlotte Hornets schedule.
