CHARLOTTE, N.C.: The Charlotte Hornets announced today the team’s 13-man roster for the 2016 Southwest Airlines Orlando Pro Summer League beginning July 2. For the third consecutive year, Hornets Associate Head Coach Patrick Ewing will serve as head coach of the team’s summer league squad.  The team’s full roster is listed below.

Prior to leaving for Orlando, the Hornets will hold a four-day mini-camp at the Novant Health Training Center inside Time Warner Cable Arena from Tuesday, June 28 – Friday, July 1.

Following the mini-camp in Charlotte, the Hornets will open their Southwest Airlines Orlando Pro Summer League schedule on Saturday, July 2 against the Orlando Magic – White squad at 11 a.m.  Charlotte will also play Indiana (Sunday, July 3 at 1 p.m.), Oklahoma City (Monday, July 4 at 5 p.m.) and Dallas (Wednesday, July 6 at 3 p.m.). The Hornets’ fifth game will be on Friday, July 8, 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 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.

NBA TV will televise 24 games of the Southwest Airlines Orlando Pro Summer League games, including all five games of the Charlotte Hornets schedule.
