While the NBA lockout has voided us of any “professional” Summer games this year, it hasn’t been a complete wasteland for basketball as the Drew League in Los Angeles, the Goodman League in Washington DC, and the NC Pro-Am in North Carolina have been going strong. Celebrities, NBA players and D-League level players have all taken part in local leagues and now thanks to the brain trusts of the Goodman and Drew League’s, we’ll have quite an All-Star talent exhibition this coming August.
Today, the rosters for that game were released featuring none other than the Kings’ own Tyreke Evans, DeMarcus Cousins and Donte Greene:
For the Goodman League: Kevin Durant (Thunder), John Wall (Wizards), Ty Lawson (Nuggets), Gary Neal (Spurs), Tyreke Evans (Kings), Michael Beasley (Timberwolves), DeMarcus Cousins (Kings), Josh Selby (Grizzlies), Sam Young (Grizzlies), Donte Green(Kings), Hugh “Baby Shaq” Jones (AND1 Tour), Emanuel “Duce” Jones and Warren “D-Nice” Jefferson.
For the Drew League: James Harden (Thunder), DeMar DeRozan (Raptors), Nick Young (Wizards), Dorrell Wright (Warriors), Brandon Jennings (Bucks), JaVale McGee (Wizards), Craig Smith (Clippers), Pooh Jeter (Kings), Bobby Brown (Aris BC), Marcus Williams (Grizzlies) and three more players yet to be named.
Recently released King, Pooh Jeter, will also suit up in the contest which as you can see, doesn’t disappoint in the name department.
You’ll be able to watch the game live, August 20th, on The Basketball Channel.
