During a normal summer, Chet Holmgren would be getting ready to play in front of a who’s who of college basketball coaches during the month of July.

North Carolina, Memphis, Georgetown, Michigan, Gonzaga, Ohio State and Minnesota are the universities in contention to land the 7-foot Holmgren, ESPN’s No. 1 player in the Class of 2021 out of Minnehaha Academy in Minnesota.

But this isn’t any normal summer given the coronavirus pandemic.

If Holmgren and his Grassroots Sizzle team travel to youth hoops events in Las Vegas and elsewhere next month, they won’t compete in front of college coaches or large groups of fans.
