Tyrese Samuel Competes At Portsmouth Invitational Tournament

The Portsmouth Invitational Tournament is one of the biggest events on the calendar for outgoing college players to showcase their abilities to prospective pro teams, and Tyrese Samuel was able to earn a spot where he competed this last weekend.

This event is only for outgoing seniors (you might remember Zyon Pullin competed in it last year–resulting in a three-game suspension to start the season for competing in a non-certified event) so it’s all veteran college players that are polished and ready to start their professional careers. In attendance are front office personnel from the NBA, G League, and an underrated part of the event–the general managers from the best teams in Europe, and they are all looking for players who can be on their roster the upcoming season.
