Ground Zero Training In Spain

Ground Zero Training Director of Basketball Operations, Jason Benadretti, recently took a trip to Spain to attend the Europrobasket European Summer League. Europrobasket focuses on helping players reach their goal of securing professional basketball opportunities overseas. While the market is never easy for any player looking to secure a contract, it is even tougher for those that may not have the resume to warrant immediate consideration. For many who need to build a playing resume, Europrobasket is one of the best places to go to begin doing so. Players without contacts to teams or agents overseas get the opportunity to showcase themselves in front of many international coaches and executives. Many thanks to the Europrobasket staff for the hospitality!

With coaches and front office executives from all over the NBA present, our players were given a fantastic opportunity to showcase themselves for their future employers. With a group that gave it their all, many positive impressions were left upon the NBA personnel in Chicago that day. We look forward to continuing to work with such a fantastic group of men and athletes as we inch closer to the 2016 NBA Draft on June 23rd!
