The D-League will hold its annual national tryouts June 15 in New York. The one-day event will see 200 hopefuls in full-court games in front of team executives, coaches and scouts.
"The NBA D-League National Tryout is an essential way for the league to identify prospects by providing prospects an opportunity to showcase their game in front of key NBA D-League team and league officials," said Chris Alpert, vice president of NBA D-League basketball operations and player personnel. "I'm looking forward to scouting this year's event and seeing which players are able to develop into NBA D-League talent."
Of the players who participated in the four 2012 NBA D-League National Tryouts, six players were selected in the 2012 NBA D-League Draft, while three prospects spent time on NBA D-League rosters during the 2012-13 season: Jazwyn Cowan (Austin Toros), Brandon Bowdry (Erie BayHawks), and Cliff Tucker (Springfield Armor).
Players wishing to participate must be at least 18. The application for the camp and the player waiver form can be downloaded from the league's official website at https://dleaguetryouts.nba.com. Completed forms, along with a $300 payment completed online, need to be received by the League office prior to the day of the tryouts. Included within the fee for participants is an NBA D-League uniform.
Participants are encouraged to register early as space is limited to 200 players.
