G League- The New Path

The G-League has offered a path to the NBA that is similar to the overseas path. The top high school recruits in the country that choose to take the G-League path would be put on a separate G-League team together that has an exhibition with other country’s teams, other G-League teams, and themselves. This team is not part of the actual G-League season but as a way to train upcoming stars through professional NBA training and off the court training such as how to handle money and fame. The first high schooler to choose this path was Jalen Green. Green was the third overall ranked prospect in the class of 2020. Green chose the G-League over the University of Memphis. Green’s contract with the G-League is for $500,000 and he will also have the opportunity to finish his college education for free whenever he is ready. Since his announcement, many prospects have followed his path. Fellow 5-star prospects, Isaiah Todd de-committed from Michigan to play for the G-League, and Daishen Nix de-committed from UCLA. This new path seems like it will be very popular as prospects get the chance to earn a lot of money while also training for the NBA with other professionals and former players.
