The Sixers will return to the Orlando Pro Summer League in July.

The eight-team field features Indiana, Utah, Brooklyn, Orlando, Detroit, Oklahoma City and Boston. The Sixers will play five games over five days at the Orlando Magic’s practice court at the Amway Center.

The league was on hiatus last year because of the lockout.

The roster will not be set until after the draft, but this is expected to be the first look at the Sixers' draft picks.
