June 30, 2015 – The Charlotte Hornets announced today that 2015 first-round draft pick Frank Kaminsky, 2014 first-round pick PJ Hairston and two-year NBA veteran Troy Daniels will represent the team at the Southwest Airlines Orlando Pro Summer League from July 4-10. The entire 14-man roster is listed below. For the second consecutive year, Hornets Associate Head Coach Patrick Ewing will serve as head coach of the team’s summer league squad.
Prior to leaving for Orlando, the Hornets will hold a three-day mini-camp at the Novant Health Training Center inside Time Warner Cable Arena from Wednesday, July 1 – Friday, July 3. The team will have two practices on July 1 and 2, with media availability following the first session. Suggested media arrival time on both July 1 and 2 is 11:30 a.m., while media should arrive at 11 a.m. on July 3. Media attending practices should enter through the media/employee entrance on the Fifth Street side of Time Warner Cable Arena and proceed to the media workroom on the event level to await a member of the communications staff.
Following the mini-camp in Charlotte, the Hornets will open their Southwest Airlines Orlando Pro Summer League schedule on Saturday, July 4 against Oklahoma City at 3 p.m. Charlotte will also play Memphis (Sunday, July 5 at 3 p.m.), Brooklyn (Tuesday, July 7 at 3 p.m.) and Orlando - White (Wednesday, July 8 at 1 p.m.). The Hornets’ fifth game will be on Friday, July 10, against an opponent to be determined by the standings after the first four games.
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 per game based on the following: 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.
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.
