Pistons Orlando summer league schedule announced

There is finally a slate of basketball on the schedule for Pistons fans to look forward this summer.

Detroit will join the Rockets, Pacers, Celtics, Grizzlies, Thunder, Heat, 76ers, Nets and the host Magic for the 2014 Southwest Airlines Orlando Pro Summer League July 5-11 at the Amway Center practice court.  The league is scheduled to host 25 games over the week, with each invited team competing in five contests.

Here is a look at the Pistons Orlando Summer League Schedule:

NBA TV and NBA.com will air the games live, even though they are not open to the public.  The league will announce a broadcast schedule upcoming at a later date. It’ll be interesting to see who the Pistons welcome to the Summer league. We know that the 38th pick (barring injury/recovery) will be there. With a full NBA Developmental League roster to fill, a lot of guys will have a chance to stay within the organization.

The Orlando summer league games consist of four ten minute quarters, a no foul-out rule, and a three minute overtime period if necessary. Teams that go over five fouls within a quarter will be in the penalty and give their opponent two free free throws. If a team is over ten in one quarter, the opposing team will get two free throws once fouled and the ball back.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Tony Mitchell, and Peyton Siva all participated in the Orlando Summer League last summer as rookies. This year we could see a ton of undrafted free agents trying to make an impression on Stan Van Gundy.

No word yet if SVG plans to coach back in his old practice gym. Normally head coaches allow their top assistant the chance to lead the summer league, but with two years away from the NBA, he might want to dust off some x and o rust.
