The Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets, Detroit Pistons, Houston Rockets, Indiana Pacers, Memphis Grizzlies, Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder will join the Sixers and Magic in the tournament. Each team will play five games. The final day will conclude with the first-place, third-place, fifth-place, seventh-place and ninth-place games.

The Sixers will also compete in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas from July 11-21.
