Sixers Announce Roster and Schedule for Southwest Airlines® Orlando Pro Summer League
SIXERS WILL BE ONE OF 10 TEAMS TAKING PART IN THE SIX-DAY EVENT FROM JULY 7-12
PHILADELPHIA, PA. – JULY 2, 2013 – The Philadelphia 76ers announced their roster and schedule for the Southwest Airlines Orlando Pro Summer League (OPSL), which takes place on the Orlando Magic’s practice court at the Amway Center from July 7-12.
In addition to the host Magic, the 25-game, six-day event will also feature the Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets, Detroit Pistons, Houston Rockets, Indiana Pacers, Miami Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder and Utah Jazz.
Headlining the Sixers entry in the OPSL is Michael Carter-Williams, who was the 11th overall pick by Philadelphia in the 2013 NBA Draft. The 21-year-old averaged 11.8 points, a team-high 7.3 assists, 4.9 rebounds and a team-high 2.8 steals as a sophomore for Syracuse last season.
Below is the Sixers entire summer league roster:
A new format will be introduced to the OPSL this summer, with two extra teams and an extra day added to the slate. Under the new format, each team will play five games 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 seven points awarded each game based on: three 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.

Please note: Due to space limitations, the event is not open to the public and will be open only to credentialed media and professional team/league personnel.
