AREA OF EXPERTISE
The NBA G-League is a great opportunity for many players to be seen and scouted by every team in the league; every night.
A lot of players who believe they are close at cracking the league often take this option fresh out of college or after summer league thinking it will be only a matter of time before they get called up. Unfortunately, this route doesn't work out for everyone and things aren't as easy as it seems.
Personally living through that experience I can attest - it is not for the faint-hearted. The travel, living and the pay can all be a challenge. However, with the new two-way contracts, the league is starting to put more money and value into this minor league system for the development of players.
Depending on your specific situation, this may be a a considerable option.
Playing in the G-League is not the only viable option of earning a chance to play in the NBA. Playing overseas offers so many possibilities and opportunities for personal and professional growth.
The first year can be hard for many rookies in the same aspects of travel, living and money as compared to the G-League. However, once you show your worth through production on the court; those things change dramatically and things become a lot more comfortable overseas the following season.
In fact, things get so comfortable that a lot of guys never try/fight to comeback and play in the NBA after a while. If done correctly, the overseas career can yield a lot of benefits that would make anyone happy. Like the G-League, playing overseas is not for the faint hearted or weak minded, but this a very legit option as well.
My mission is simple, I want to give players the information I didn't have - and no one was giving - when I came out of college.
I give my clients equal and optimal attention. No matter where they come from or school they attended - I work with everyone. More importantly, I empower my clients with knowledge and confidence in order to help them make the best informed decisions for their careers.
