The Tulsa 66ers made it official.
High school players are now jumping to the D-League as Latavious Williams became the first player to not only go from high school to the D-League, but the 66ers took him with the 16th and final pick in the first round.
He’ll look to enter the NBA Draft next season as he can’t until his graduating class was out of school a year.
Just for the record, Tulsa doesn’t play the BayHawks in Erie this season. Both games are in Tulsa Jan. 17 and Jan. 19.
Go figure, but I’m intersted to see how the 6-foot, 8-inch youngster does. He’s was supposed to go Memphis, but didn’t qualify academically. Then he was supposed to go overseas in China and didn’t.
So let’s see how this route works for him.
