After an eventful day in free agency it’s time to watch some actual basketball.
It’s time for Salt Lake City Summer League!
The Utah Jazz will host their annual summer league tournament tonight giving fans a chance to get their first look at some of the exciting new rookies, and young players, in the league. Well, except Darius Garland, Collin Sexton, Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr. ... but otherwise it will be great!
For Jazz fans this will be a great opportunity to get looks at their three new second round picks from the draft, Justin Wright-Foreman, Jarrell Brantley and Miye Oni. If any of these guys proves themselves good enough to make the roster of what is likely the team coming out of the Western Conference, the Jazz are in great shape.

Where: Vivint Smart Home Arena • Salt Lake City, UT

What to look for
Here is Utah’s summer league roster. If you follow the Salt Lake City Stars you’ll notice some familiar faces.

This is a make or break year for some of these guys. Probably the most important guy to watch is Tony Bradley. The Jazz have invested a lot of time in Bradley and at some point he needs to show an ability to impact the game.
Can he have a big summer league showing?

Welcome to the SLC Dunk Game Thread.
Dunkers know how this thing works, but for you lurkers ready to make the jump to Dunker, we have a few guidelines. Remember to follow our community guidelines (no swearing, trolling, excessive use of Jerry Sloan’s name in vain, no personal attacks, no debates about Utah liquor laws, etc.). Remember to have fun. Anyone who dare blasphemes that Tim Duncan was a Power Forward (this means you, Pounding the Rock), Ben Simmons can hit threes, Gordon Haywardshould not be booed, Exum Island isn’t a 5-Star resort, Donovan Mitchell is Monta Ellis 2.0, men should never cry or John Stockton is not the best point guard of all-time will receive an automatic ban. Just kidding. But seriously.
