The 2020-21 NBA G League Draft was officially held yesterday, with 17 teams having the ability to draft a deep list of familiar players during the three-round event, which was conducted (like everything else in life) via Zoom.
Only players signed to a 2020-21 NBA G League “Standard Player Contract” were eligible to be drafted, and teams were not technically required to make any selections in the draft (although, once a team declines a pick, they no longer had the ability to make any selections for the remainder of the draft).
With the Iowa Wolves slotted to pick fourth overall, the top three picks of the G League Draft went like this:
- Greensboro Swarm: Admiral Schofield
- Memphis Hustle: Freddie Gillespie
- Canton Charge: Antonio Blakeney
When it was time to finally make their decision, the Wolves selected 24-year old Allonzo Trier, a five-star high school recruit out of Seattle, Washington who ended up playing three seasons at the University of Arizona:
Trier went undrafted back in 2018, and eventually signed a two-way contract with the New York Knicks.
