The 6'10" versatile forward from Queens, New York spent this past summer balling it up all across the Big Apple. Aside from logging dominant performances in Nike ProCity at Baruch College, Hunt also participated in a group workout in front of Knicks, Nets, and Hornets' brass, among others.
After averaging a near 20 point and 10 rebound double-double last season overseas, the forward is hoping to catch the eye of an NBA execute or two in time for training camp.
With multiple workouts now scheduled in the weeks ahead, Hunt's goal is to impress teams and subsequently gain invaluable experience by participating in NBA training camp. Should he not be able to stick in The Association right away, the Queens native is also eligible for this coming fall's NBA D-League Draft.
That said, Hunt would gain an advantage, should he go through training camp with an NBA squad first. If they were to choose to let loose a young gun during following camp, an NBA team has the opportunity to retain such player's rights for their D-League affiliate instead. This would allow a curious enough team to monitor Hunt's progress in the D-League even closer as the season progresses.
