Former Kentucky Wildcats Kellan Grady and Keion Brooks Jr. are among the 44 participants invited to this coming week’s G League Elite Camp — and now in a fun twist, they’ll actually be suiting up as teammates once again.
According to multiple reports, Grady and Brooks will play for Team 2 during the camp’s 5-on-5 assignments. Grady will wear jersey No. 17 while Brooks will wear No. 21. The event is scheduled to take place on May 16 and 17 at Wintrust Arena in Chicago. Top performers from the camp will be invited to the NBA Draft Combine 2022, also in Chicago, from May 18-22.
Grady exhausted all of his college eligibility following the 2021-22 season and will enter the NBA Draft. Brooks, on the other hand, announced on April 29 that he would transfer away from Kentucky and either choose a different college team or stay in the draft process.
These next few days should help them determine where their stock stands.
Joining Grady and Brooks on Team 2 will be James Akinjo (Baylor), Michael Devoe (Georgia Tech), Kyler Edwards (Texas Tech), Kam McGusty (Miami), Jordan Hall (St. Joseph’s), Baylor Scheierman (Creighton), Jermaine Samuels (Villanova), Bryson Williams (Texas Tech), and Kenny Lofton (in transfer portal).
