Nevada Basketball's First Ever Pro Day

Nevada Basketball's First Ever Pro Day

Nevada Basketball will hold the first Pro Day in program history this afternoon. Pro Day is designed for our players to showcase their talents in front of NBA personnel. For the event today, we have 33 NBA Scouts confirmed from 20 different NBA Teams. 

There are some familiar faces attending today’s event who Coach Musselman has a history with who will be attending. Musselman coached Antwan Jamison and Irving Thomas during their professional playing careers, who both will be attending as scouts for the Los Angeles Lakers. Mike Petrie, who worked alongside Coach Musselman with the Sacramento Kings, will be attending as a representative of the Washington Wizards. Greg Stratton worked with Coach Musselman during his time with the Golden State Warriors will be attending for the Sacramento Kings. Also, during his time in the NBA, Coach Musselman coached against Gene Cross and John Treloar, who will be scouting for the Sacramento Kings and the Atlanta Hawks respectively. During Coach Musselman’s time with the San Diego Padres, he worked with Padres Vice President at the time, David Morway, who will be attending the event with the Utah Jazz. Tony Ronzone of the Dallas Mavericks and Ron Dupree of the Milwaukee Bucks will be returning to Reno to watch Pack players in action. Dupree, was an assistant under Coach Musselman at Nevada and Ronzone played for the Wolf Pack from 1983-1985. 

It is great to see these relationships come for circle and have these names help promote Pack players to the NBA teams they work for. Pack players are excited to get out today and we want to thank all of our NBA guests for attendings. 

Pro Day will be available to watch on the Mountain West Network, Facebook Live and Nevada Sports Network.  The event will consist of live competition and skill work to showcase our players abilities and allow for them to be evaluated by the NBA Scouts.
