Steve Francis, Kendall Gill, Donte Greene, Jumaine Jones, Ronald Murray, Joe Smith, DeShawn Stevenson, Mike Sweetney, and Hakim Warrick are the latest former players to join Ice Cube’s BIG 3 basketball league. The former NBA players will be a part of April’s draft pool.
There will be a player combine just before the draft where all eligible draft pool players will showcase their skills. The league’s player captains will assess the players during the combine and then use the draft to fill out their team’s roster.
The league will tip off June 25 at the Barclays Center and it was announced that Fox Sports will broadcast the entire season.
