As expected, Jonathan Kuminga is exploring his professional options.
According to a report by Adam Zagoria, Kuminga is looking at the Australian NBL and NBA G League in addition to his college finalists.
“Jonathan Kuminga and his camp are exploring professional options for the 2020-21 season, including the NBA G League and potentially playing in the Australian NBL,” Zagoria reported. The 6-foot-8 forward recently graduated from The Patrick School (N.J.) and thus accelerated his clock to be eligible for the 2021 NBA Draft.“
In the same report, an NBL spokesman told Zagoria that the five-star forward is considering their league.
“We understand he is exploring a number of different options and we believe the NBL is one of those,” a league spokesman told ZAGSBLOG.
ESPN is currently projecting Kuminga – seen as a consensus top-five prospect in the nation, regardless of class – as the No. 4 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.
In an interview with ESPN’s Paul Biancardi – as transcribed by ZagsBlog – Kuminga said his ultimate goal was “To get to the NBA, play at the highest level and go out there and compete.”
Back in May, Kuminga trimmed his list to five, with Auburn, Duke, Kentucky, Texas Tech, and the G League making the final cut.
