Hey, it’s New York. There’s lots of hoops talent. So why not a second G-League tryout?
The Long Island Nets will host a second local player tryout on Saturday, September 22, in Brooklyn at the Aviator Sports and Events Center. The tryout in Brooklyn will follow the team’s first local player tryout at LIU Post on Long Island on Saturday, September 15.
Both tryouts will see local basketball hopefuls competing for the chance to earn an invitation to LI Nets training camp in October ahead of the 2018-19 season.
Aviator Sports and Events Center is located at 3159 Flatbush Ave. in Brooklyn, N.Y., at Floyd Bennett Field, and check-in will begin at 12:30 p.m. ahead of the 1:30 p.m. tryout. Brooklyn and Long Island Nets basketball operations personnel will run the tryout, which will include a variety of drills and scrimmages.
Former local player tryout success stories include J.J. Moore, a Brentwood, N.Y., native and 2016 local tryout participant who appeared in 46 games for Long Island last season, and Charlie Marquardt, a former Molloy College standout and 2017 local tryout participant who appeared in four games for the LI Nets during the 2017-18 campaign.
