D-League: Open tryouts for Delaware 87ersPosted by Inside Hoops
So you think you’re good enough to play pro ball? Got $200 to chase the dream?
The Delaware 87ers, the 76ers-owned squad in the NBA Development League, will be holding open tryouts the next two Saturday mornings.
If you think you’re better than Leo Lyons, Tyler Wilkerson, Jerome Randle or Hamady N’Diaye - all on the 87ers’ current roster - here’s your chance to prove it.
This Saturday, tryouts will be held at the Community College of Philadelphia at 8 a.m. If you are planning to walk up to walk on, get there by 7. To get on the court, it will cost you $200. The team will be accepting cashier’s checks and money orders. But if you register on line, at www.nba.com/dleague/delaware, you’ll save $50. The deadline for online registration is noon tomorrow.
