— The Orlando Magic will host the Southwest Airlines Orlando Pro Summer League at the team's practice court at the Amway Center from July 4-10, 2015. The 25-game, seven-day event will feature two teams from the Orlando Magic, along with the Brooklyn Nets, Charlotte Hornets, Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers, Los Angeles Clippers, Memphis Grizzlies, Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder.

Each team will play five games over the seven-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.

Due to space limitations, the event is not open to the public and will be open only to the media and professional team/league personnel. Fans can access box scores, game recaps and cumulative statistics by visiting www.orlandomagic.com.

NBA TV will televise the Southwest Airlines Orlando Pro Summer League games, with a complete schedule of games and broadcast information to be released at a later date. Additionally, fans will once again be able to watch every game live on NBA.com and on the NBA Game Time app.

COMPETITION FORMAT

Each team will play five games over the seven-day event

Standings will be kept over the first six days of the league according to a point system (described below)

Every team will play their fifth and final game against the opponent seeded most closely to them in the standings

-For example, the two teams with the highest point totals will play in the Championship game; the teams with the third and fourth-highest point totals play in a third place game, etc.

POINT SYSTEM

Standings over the first six days of the league will be kept using an EIGHT-POINT SYSTEM. In this system, eight points are awarded each game and distributed as follows:

-Four points for winning the game

-One point for every quarter a team wins (in the event of a tied quarter, both teams will receive 0.5 points)

As a result, the winning team in each game can collect between five to eight points, while the losing team can collect from zero to three points.

CHAMPIONSHIP SEEDING CRITERIA

Day seven Championship seeding will be determined by a team's total points in the league standings

In the event of a tie, the following tie-breaker steps will be in place:

Tiebreaker 1: Total point differential

Tiebreaker 2: Total points allowed

Tiebreaker 3: Coin flip

NOTE -- Overall or head-to-head win/loss record will NOT impact championship day seeding. Seeding will be determined solely by the criteria above.
