This coming Sunday, hundreds of professional basketball hopefuls will attempt to make their marks and leave a (positive) lasting impression at the NBA D-League's annual national tryout in New York City.
While many of these players are otherwise unknown to casual basketball fans, this is an opportunity for a select few young up and comers to make a name for themselves.
Color Chicago native Jerome Harris as one of the players hoping to do so in just a few short days.
Once a highly coveted prospect coming out of high school and even community college, Harris' journey also took him to Mississippi Valley State, among others. He finished up at BYU-Hawaii. The point guard is listed at 6'3" and 160 pounds.
Harris is said to be an explosive guard who enjoys driving through the lane and finishing aggressively at the rim. He's an enthusiastic player who is hungry to mix it up with all the other athletes and prove his worth in the process. This offseason, he has worked out with former NBA Draft prospect Renardo Sidney as well.
