The Grand Rapids Gold, the NBA G League affiliate of the Denver Nuggets, will be hosting open tryouts for the NBA G League season.
Members of the Denver Nuggets coaching and personnel staff will be at both events to structure the tryout and evaluate each player.
After the tryouts, up to four players will be invited to the Grand Rapids Gold training camp in October.
“Our team is excited to offer this unique feature to players in both Grand Rapids and Denver,” said Steve Jbara, president of the Grand Rapids Gold. “We’re looking for team members who will win games for the people of Grand Rapids while developing into championship pieces for the Denver Nuggets.”
Prior to the tryouts, interested players must complete the registration process, including meeting the NBA G League requirements such as providing proof of COVID-19 vaccination by Sept. 15. Walkups will not be accepted. Each tryout will be capped at 100 participants.
