The BIG3 league is preparing a reality-TV style tournament while under quarantine. These five former Utah Jazz players would add some extra excitement.

It’s been a little over a week without Utah Jazz basketball, or any basketball in general. The NBA suspended the 2019-20 season. The NCAA Tournament was cancelled, as was the G-League season.

Add up all of those things and factor in being stuck at home for the most part and you’ve got one of the slowest, most boring weeks of my life. It’s been unfortunate circumstances, but understandable circumstances due to the rapid spread of novel coronavirus.

One league, however, has big plans in the coming month. That league would be The BIG3. Since debuting in 2017, the Ice Cube owned league has served as an incredibly entertaining platform for retired NBA players looking to hoop.

According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports, The BIG3 plans to launch a three-week quarantined tournament next month.

16-22 players will participate in this reality-TV like tournament. They will be tested for novel coronavirus and be quarantined in a Los Angeles mansion. If any player breaks quarantine during the event, they will be eliminated and removed.

The basketball is what the fans need, but the reality-TV portion of the tournament also stand out. The players lives inside the mansion will be captured on camera throughout, providing fans with a unique viewing experience.

Once I read up on this, I thought about how great and creative of an idea it was. Once I did some more thinking, like on which players would be involved, I thought about some former Utah Jazz players that would be fun to watch during this brilliant experiment.

I came up with five players. Let’s get started and take a look at our first former Jazzman:
