HOUSTON – The Houston Rockets will participate in the Orlando Pro Summer League on the practice court at Amway Center from July 5-11. The 25-game, seven-day event will also feature the Orlando Magic, Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets, Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers, Memphis Grizzlies, Miami Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder and Philadelphia 76ers.

The format for this summer will have each team playing 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 and 3) coin flip.
