Even had Caleb Love or Armando Bacot went pro, there was no guarantee that either would have been drafted in the 2022 NBA Draft. Brady Manek exhausted his college eligibility after four seasons at Oklahoma, and his lone season in Chapel Hill, but even after 5 stellar seasons in college basketball, it wasn’t likely Manek wasn’t going to be drafted later this summer either. Today though, Manek received some positive news, as he pursues a pro basketball career, as he was one of 44 players, to earn an invite to the NBA G-League Elite Camp. This camp will allow Manek to compete in 5 on 5 action, as well as show their strength and agility in a variety of different drills. If Manek impresses, he can earn a spot in the NBA Draft Combine, and increase his chances of being drafted.
Manek was an integral part of Carolina’s “Iron 5”, which was on the doorstep of a national championship last month. Manek was third on the team in scoring at 15.1 points per game, while shooting 49% from the field, including 40% from behind the three-point line.
