The NBA D-League offseason is officially underway; the Elite Mini-Camp is taking place in Chicago this week, and the league has already announced its plans for the annual summer national tryout.
The event will continue to be hosted at the Basketball City facility in the heart of the Big Apple. As reported by RidiculousUpside.com, longtime national tryout director Bob MacKinnon will return for his sixth straight year leading the aspiring pros through what is sure to be an action-packed day. It'll take place on Sunday, June 14th.
"The annual National Tryout is an important part of the NBA D-League calendar and an essential piece of the league's efforts to identify top young prospects," President Malcolm Turner said in a statement. "It's always exciting to watch players compete for an opportunity to play in the NBA's official minor league and I hope to see some of the participants in an NBA D-League jersey next season."
As further described by the league, "participants will each play in at least two games, while benefitting from hands-on instruction from NBA D-League coaches. Additionally, each player at the National Tryout will receive an authentic NBA D-League practice uniform and enjoy a chalk-talk from the camp's director."
