Two Canadian NBA hopefuls have been given their chances to try and distinguish themselves from the rest.
Toronto native Nick Wiggins was able to earn himself a non-guaranteed contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The 24 year old Whichita State alum played in the NBA D-League last year with the Idaho Stampede, before being invited to compete with both the Utah Jazz and Minnesota Timberwolves summer league teams.
An exclusive NPH interview from three years ago “Two dreams, one goal” could come to fruition.
As one Canadian was picked up by the T-Wolves, reports have surfaced that another is in the process of being bought out.
The Minnesota Timberwolves have decided to part ways with the 2013 NBA draft’s first overall pick, Anthony Bennett.
Bennett, who appeared in 57 games for Minnesota, averaged 5.2 PPG, 3.8 RPG, on 42 percent from the field.
Calgary native Jordan Bachynski was also able to earn a non-guaranteed contract with the Detroit Pistons.
Bachynski was the 2013-14 Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year and also led the NCAA with 4.1 blocks per game.
It will be a fierce and competitive training camp for the 7’2 lefty as out of the 20 roster spots for the Pistons, 17 are already guaranteed.
