A charity exhibition basketball game featuring former Brigham Young standout Jimmer Fredette, Chauncey Billups and Jazzmen Al Jefferson, Devin Harris and Paul Millsap is planned for Nov. 7 in Salt Lake City, The Salt Lake Tribune has learned.
The game will likely be held at Salt Lake Community College.
Pro Player Tours is organizing the contest, which is also expected to feature Stephen Curry, Derrick Favors, Corey Maggette, Anthony Tolliver and Ronnie Price.
SLCC athletic director Norma Carr and facilities director Rick Medley told The Tribune the game is tentatively scheduled at Bruin Arena. Tickets will likely be sold by Smith'sTix.
Carr said SLCC officials will meet Monday to confirm the event.
"I can't say 100 percent, but I'd say 99 percent I think that it will go from our end," Carr said.
She added: "We're more than willing to … work with [the organizer]."
A Pro Players spokesman said all 10 players have formally committed to the game and more names are expected to be announced soon.
The contest could be canceled, though, if the NBA lockout ends soon.
