Georgia Tech Basketball Report #ProJackets – Men’s Basketball – Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets



THE APARTMENTS Chris Bosh received rave reviews for his dedication speech Saturday at the Basketball Hall of Fame induction ceremony… James banks iii is invited to the Pelicans training camp… What to expect Thaddeus Young and Derrick favors with their new teams? … More in this week’s #ProJackets report.



Chris Bosh stole the show on Saturday at the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame induction ceremony, though it was hard to shake the idea that he shouldn’t have been there at all.

Of course, the Olympic gold medalist, two-time champion and 11-time star was a deserving selection. While Bosh was the subject of mockery and nitpicking throughout his prime – discussions largely influenced by his decision to team up with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade on the Miami Heat – there was no debate. on its value. The Texas native averaged 20 points per game six times, served as a franchise player for the Toronto Raptors and made an effortless transition to become an ideal third wheel for the Heat.

The pelicans free agent goalkeeper signed Jared harper and big man James banks iii to training camp offers (Twitter link), according to Hoops Rumors.

Banks was not drafted from Georgia Tech in 2020 after being a part of the ACC defensive team in his junior and senior seasons. The 6’10 “center spent his first professional season in Israel with Hapoel Be’er Sheva, then adapted for the Cavaliers at the Las Vegas Summer League last month.

Both Harper and Banks will be on the 10 piece chords, making them candidates to join the Birmingham Squadron – New Orleans’ G League team – if they don’t earn a spot in the Pelicans’ 17-player regular season team. In this scenario, they would be eligible for bonuses worth up to $ 50,000 on top of their NBAGL salaries.



Before veteran Thaddeus Young was recently acquired by the San Antonio Spurs as part of the signing and trade that sent DeMar DeRozan to the Chicago Bulls. While his inclusion was necessary in addition to Al-Farouq Aminu and draft picks due to his salary, Young is also a valuable asset. The 14-year-old NBA veteran played well last season, giving the Bulls both offensive and defensive versatility.

Spurs finally appear to be in the midst of rebuilding, and while having a veteran like Young can certainly help a young team win, it can also be counterproductive. San Antonio should look to focus on developing their young talent and less on winning this coming season. Even if they aren’t going to ‘cash in’ next season, winning fewer games would help Spurs secure a higher pick in next year’s draft. Trading Young would be a quick way to accomplish both of these tasks.

At 6-foot-9, Favors is playing mostly forward, but will be used as a center for the coming season by the Thunder.
