ORLANDO – The Orlando Magic will host the Southwest Airlines Orlando Pro Summer League at the team’s practice court at the Amway Center from July 2-8, 2016. The 25-game, seven-day event will feature two teams from the Orlando Magic, along with the Charlotte Hornets, Dallas Mavericks, Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers, Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat, New York Knicks 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.

SOUTHWEST AIRLINES ORLANDO PRO SUMMER LEAGUE RULES
· Four 10-minute quarters
· Eight-minute halftime
· Two full timeouts per half
· Two one-minute mandatory TV timeouts per quarter on dead ball at 5:59 and again at
· A 60-second timeout taken by a team will negate the next mandatory timeout in that
· Teams will be in the penalty on the 10th team foul of each quarter or second in the last
· Players foul out on 10th personal foul
· Ten-minute warm-up/intermission between games
· “Advance” Rule in place for last 2:00 of game and overtime
· Two-minute overtime period
· Each team is allowed one 60-second timeout
· Each team is allowed one advance
· Penalty begins on the 2nd team foul
· NEW: The second overtime period is a ‘modified’ sudden death. Each team will be guaranteed one possession in the sudden death period. For example: if Team A wins the tip and scores two points, the game will continue and Team B will possess the ball with a chance to do the following:
-Score two points (game is now tied and continues to sudden death)
-Score three points (team B wins the game outright)
-Not score and the possession concludes with a defensive rebound, offensive foul, or turnover, in which case Team A wins and the game is over.
· 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.
· 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.
