Matchups will be determined at a later date, but each night will feature two games, at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., respectively.

Jazz season-ticket-holders will be given pre-sale access to tickets later this week. Tickets will then go on sale to the general public May 13 at 10 a.m. Lower-bowl tickets are available for $9 per day (which grants access to both games), or three-day passes (for all six games) can be purchased for $16.

SALT LAKE CITY — Summer league basketball will take place in Utah once again in 2019, but with a few slight changes.

The Utah Jazz formally announced on Monday that the Salt Lake City Summer League — previously called the Utah Jazz Summer League — will be held July 1-3 at Vivint Arena.

Along with the Jazz, the San Antonio Spurs and Memphis Grizzlies will be returning. The Cleveland Cavaliers will round out the four-team field and make their first appearance at the event, which will be in its fifth year.

In all, six games will be played over the three days, with each team playing three games. Two games will be played each day, with the first beginning at 5 p.m. MT and the second immediately following each day.

Games will be played on a modified City Edition court. The sidelines will be the same and the court will still feature the Delicate Arch near center court, but instead of Utah at center court, a vintage-looking yellow and orange basketball will appear with the name of the event written inside of it.

General public ticket sales will start May 13 at 10 a.m., with a one-day lower bowl pass (good for both games) starting at $9. Three-day passes for all six games start at $16.

In addition to the action that will take place inside Vivint Arena, a 3v3 tournament will once again be held for the public outside on July 1 at Park Place across from the arena. Multiple divisions will be available, and teams will play a minimum of four games, including a single elimination tournament.
