Utah Jazz reportedly to play exhibition game vs. Sydney Kings of Australia's NBL

Having NBL teams play in exhibition games in the National Basketball Association is a solid benchmark of where the NBL is in terms of quality, and will draw future prospects to the league, especially ones who are mulling over the possibility of using the NBL as an alternative to the one-and-done college route.

This is pretty cool, especially with the Jazz being involved, as they have Joe Ingles and Dante Exum, both native Australians on the roster.

Following that, United will clash with the Oklahoma City Thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena, and the Bullets will take on the Phoenix Suns at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Arizona.

The series of friendly matches will benefit all participating teams, as it will prepare them for next season, and also give them the opportunity to go up against different styles of basketball.

Melbourne will have six days until their next NBL fixture against Adelaide on October 14, but the Bullets are scheduled to play two days later on the 15th against New Zealand. If these games go well and the NBL can continue to work on their relationship with the National Basketball Association, that goal could become a reality sooner rather than later.

Most recently Bullets, and former Wellington Saints, import Torrey Craig picked up a two-way contract with the Denver Nuggets off the back of a standout showing at the 2017 NBA Summer League.
