Wolf Pack basketball alums Jazz Johnson and Jalen Harris are both making moves in the professional arena.
Johnson has been expected to sign with the Italian team Acqua S. Bernardo Cantu, and his name appears on the roster for the team under the number 22, the same jersey number he wore for the Pack.
The league the Italian team is a part of, Lega Basket Serie A, is planning to begin their 2020-2021 season in either September or October.
In May, Harris decided to forgo his senior season and entered the NBA draft. He made the initial cut to participate in the draft combine which has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Harris could possibly be chosen in the second round of the draft, which is expected to be held on Oct. 16.
The basketball program has delivered many talented players to professional leagues around the world, including Nick Fazekas, Luke Babbitt, and JaVale McGee.
