SALT LAKE CITY — Tonight's Utah Jazz reunion keeps getting bigger.

Longtime Jazz swingman C.J. Miles announced via Twitter that he'll also play in the Pro Players Charity Classic (7 p.m. tipoff) at SLCC's Lifetime Activities Center.

"And," he wrote, "I'm tweeting during the game lmao #nofines."

Another tidbit about the exhibition game came out via a Jazz player's Twitter account. In a humorous way, rookie center Enes Kanter let his followers know he'll be matched up against his future teammate, Utah big man Al Jefferson.

"My 2nd Day in SLC and I already got traded. Life of a rook I guess," Kanter tweeted. "Goin up against Al Jeff and others at tonites Pro Player Classic."

Kanter then added, "My agent says good move, but he's not one that has to go up with Big Al. See you tonite! ... Game is all for fans and great cause so hope to see you all at game at SLCC."

The presumed rosters might look like this (with changes and additions still possible before tonight):

Team Jazz: Jefferson, Miles, Derrick Favors, Paul Millsap, Devin Harris, Jeremy Evans, Alec Burks, Ronnie Price and Earl Watson.

Team NBA: Kanter, Jimmer Fredette, Wesley Matthews, Chauncey Billups, Stephen Curry, Corey Maggette and Anthony Tolliver.

Tickets are available at ksl.com/deals, smithstix.com and at the SLCC box office before the game.

Charities to benefit from proceeds include Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Special Olympics, Ronald McDonald House and the OI Foundation.
