This Guy's Older Brother - Douglas C. Pizac-USA TODAY Sports

I get pretty worn out by the time the NBA Draft is finished, but that's where things are just starting. In a few days the Utah Jazz will be participating again in the yearly Orlando Summer League. The Full Schedule and analysis can be found here, but if you just want to know the games here they are:

Here is the full Jazz schedule:

Date Game Time (MT)
Sunday July 7 Miami Heat vs Utah Jazz 11:00 AM
Monday July 8 No Jazz Game
Tuesday July 9 Utah Jazz vs Houston Rockets 1:00 PM
Wednesday July 10 Utah Jazz vs Brooklyn Nets 9:00 AM
Thursday July 11 Indiana Pacers vs Utah Jazz 9:00 AM
Friday July 12 "Championship Day"

And the team should be there right now because some of the players were socially media-ing their way there.

You may remember some of them from before, so I've included links to their exploits! I guess this year Gobert is our Salah Mejri in terms of being a really huge guy who is tall and blocks shots. I hope to see more from Michael Stockton -- he's had another year in Europe to get better. What I really enjoyed from watching him last year was his willingness to set screens, play defense, and be "tough".

A lot of these guys are "old", but have experience. So that should temper out what we get with our lineups. The vast majority of the invites this year are guys we've already seen before at the closed door Jazz mini free agent camp.

And lastly, if you wanted to see the stats from LAST year in Orlando, here they are:

I hope everyone has a good time out there, no injuries, and people play at their best ability. The Games start in 4 days! Woo!
