Juvonte Reddic’s draft stock may be getting the Larry Sanders treatment, as the rising senior is reportedly following up his Nike Big Man Skills Academy appearance with an invitation to the Lebron James Skills Academy in Las Vegas. Reddic is the first VCU player since Sanders to receive invitations to both. Sanders parlayed his appearances and an impressive junior season into the 15th pick of the 2010 NBA Draft.
Reddic will be one of 20 college players to attend the camp hosted by four-time NBA MVP, Lebron James. The VCU big recently finished the Nike Big Man Skills Academy featuring an elite group of 13 select college players, and will head to Vegas July 5-8 for this next event where he’ll sharpen his skills in front of hundreds of media members and scouts from nearly every NBA team.
Of last year’s group, 10 were drafted in this year’s NBA Draft.
