Utah Summer Basketball League
July 3, 5 and 6, 2017
The 2017 Utah Jazz Summer League will be played on July 3, 5 and 6. No league games will be played on Tuesday, July 4. Each team will play three games over the four-day span as part of daily double-headers at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. MT.
The six-game, four-team event will take place at the Jon M. Huntsman Center on the campus of the University of Utah and feature the Jazz, Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers and San Antonio Spurs for the third straight year.
According to the Salt Lake Tribune, "There's a very good chance that this summer's six-game slate between four teams will have a future star, given that there's three lottery picks from the 2017 draft, and several others from previous drafts playing on the hardcourt this week at the Huntsman Center. While free agency and blockbuster trades have dominated the headlines, the Summer League could represent the future of pro basketball — and Utah will have a frontrow seat.."
The broadcast plans for television, radio and online coverage for the 2017 Utah Jazz Summer League, in association with America First Credit Union, University of Utah Health and the Utah Sports Commission, were announced today. The six-game, four-team event will be held at the Jon M. Huntsman Center on the campus of the University of Utah July 3, 5 and 6. KJZZ 14 Television will broadcast the Jazz games live on July 3 vs. San Antonio, July 5 vs. Philadelphia 76ers and July 6 vs. Boston Celtics, while The Zone Sports Network (1280 AM/97.5 FM) will simulcast the games.

All six Utah Jazz Summer League games will also be broadcast live on NBA TV, as well as streamed via the ESPN app. For fans outside the Jazz television market, UtahJazz.com will stream the Jazz games.
League play tips off with the Celtics, who own the first pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, playing the 76ers with the third pick. The Jazz (No. 24 and 30 selections) will face the San Antonio Spurs (No. 29 pick) on opening night.
