SALT LAKE CITY — Utah basketball fans won't have to wait until the NBA unlocks itself to see Jazz players and Jimmer Fredette play in person again.
An exhibition game featuring The Jimmer along with Jazz players Al Jefferson, Devin Harris, Paul Millsap, Derrick Favors and Ronnie Price will take place at the Salt Lake Community College's Lifetime Activities Center on Monday, Nov. 7.
Tickets for the Pro Player Charity Classic go on sale at SmithTix outlets Monday at 1 p.m.
The game's format will match the Jazz players — with more to be announced next week — against the NBA group. Chauncey Billups, Stephen Curry, Corey Maggette and Anthony Tolliver are the announced players who will join Fredette on the non-Jazz squad.
Jazz swingman C.J. Miles is in town after spending most of the offseason in New York and Dallas, but it's uncertain whether he'll play.
Gordon Hayward has committed to play in a pro-am All-Star game the night before (Nov. 6) in Indiana, so it seems unlikely he'd participate in this one.
The game's proceeds will benefit a variety of charities, including the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Special Olympics, Ronald McDonald House and the OI Foundation.
