The Oklahoma City Thunder opens its five-game schedule in the AirTran Airways Pro Summer League in Orlando on July 5 against Boston at 4 p.m.

The Thunder then plays Charlotte on Tuesday, July 6 at 2 p.m., Philadelphia and anticipated No. 2 overall pick Evan Turner on Wednesday, July 7 at 2 p.m., host team Orlando on Thursday, July 8 at 12 p.m. and Indiana on Friday, July 9 at 7 a.m.

Oklahoma City will not compete against the remaining teams, New Jersey, which owns the No. 3 overall pick in the draft, and Utah, which is slated to select ninth.

Games will be played at the RDV Sportsplex but are not open to the public. The official site of the Orlando Magic has provided coverage of each game via live webcasts in recent years, and select games could air on NBA TV.

The Thunder has not yet completed its roster for the event. Returning players James Harden, Serge Ibaka, Eric Maynor, Byron Mullens, Kyle Weaver and D.J. White are all expected to compete. DeVon Hardin, a second-round selection in 2008, and Robert Vaden, a second-round selection last year, also are expected to compete, as well as the Thunder's selections in next week's 2010 NBA Draft.
