The Long Island Nets, the NBA G League affiliate of the Brooklyn Nets, will host their annual local player tryout on Saturday, Sept. 15, at LIU Post, with local basketball hopefuls competing for the chance to earn an invitation to LI Nets training camp in October.
The tryout will feature a variety of drills and scrimmages run by Brooklyn and Long Island Nets basketball operations personnel at the Pratt Recreation Center on LIU Post’s campus at 720 Northern Blvd. in Brookville, N.Y. Check-in begins at 9 a.m. ahead of the 10 a.m. tryout.
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.
