Heslip once connected on 13 three pointers in one game with the Bighorns in the NBA D-League, setting a league record against the Idaho Stampede in a 45 point performance.
The Nelson High School graduate played with the Baylor Bears in NCAA D1 before being signing with the Minnesota Timberwolves for a short period. Heslip also spent time with the Canadian Senior National Team, averaging 13 points a game in the 2015 Pan Am Games. During the FIBA Americas Championship in Mexico City, Heslip averaged 10 points, 1.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game.
