Many NBA players are hitting the hardwoods in the off-season circuit league – giving it a tough fight.
Here’s who’s playing where.
paolo banchero, Chet Holmgren confronted with Jaden McDaniels in Seattle
1 and No. 2 picks from the 2022 NBA Draft, Banchero and Holmgren, were present in The Crossover Pro-Am League run by former NBA guard Jamal Crawford. In fact, the top draft choices put on a show together.
Here are some highlights from his Saturday soiree.
McDaniels also put in a commendable performance for himself.
The Minnesota Timberwolves wing demonstrated an ability to handle the rock and score with the dribble, which it did down.
Donovan Mitchell Miami Pro League closed
The Miami Heat are among the teams that are reportedly looking to trade for Mitchell, and the guard made a show appearance in the Miami Pro League.
There were several highlight reel buckets for the Utah Jazz superstar, who was joined by Miami’s Bam Adebayo (coincidence?!) and Cavs star Darius Garland.
Furthermore, the crowd pours out chants to Mitchell, urging him to come to Miami. Five years into his NBA career, Mitchell has made three All-Star Game appearances.
Outside of Miami, the New York Knicks have been in hot pursuit of the Mitchell business.
Isaiah Thomas Drew dominates the league
Five years ago, Thomas was one of the best point guards in the NBA. He was a fearless scorer and the engine of the Boston Celtics’ offense.
Thomas’ appearance in the Drew League was reminiscent of his Boston days.
Thomas – who appeared in a combined 22 games with the Charlotte Hornets, Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks last season – finished with 45 points.
