T’Wolves Work Out Jimmer, Mark Lyons
While the NBA Finals aren't over yet and the curtain hasn't closed on the 2016 season, the offseason activities are ramping up for all those teams not currently playing.
And that's good news for two local products:
The Minnesota Timberwolves worked out Glens Falls native Jimmer Fredette and Schenectady native Mark Lyons.
Fredette is coming off a season that saw him have two separate NBA stints (Pelicans and Knicks) and spend most of his time in the NBA D-League. While with the Westchester Knicks, Fredette averaged more than 20 points per game and was MVP of the D-League All-Star Game.
Lyons, on the other hand, is most known for his collegiate career with Xavier, and later Arizona. Lyons has been playing professionally in Israel for Maccabi Rishon. He previously played in Israel for Ironi Nahariya and averaged more than 18 points a game in the 2015 season.
Here's to hoping that at least one of the Capital Region natives sticks in Minnesota.
