RICHMOND, Va. – Senior Juvonte Reddic of the VCU men's basketball program has seen his name on several NBA mock drafts. This upcoming weekend, he'll have a chance to move his name up that draft board.
Reddic will join a host of other NBA hopefuls at this weekend's 2014 Portsmouth Invitational Tournament. He will be the third Ram in the past four years to play in the prestigious tournament, joining Jamie Skeen (2011) and Bradford Burgess (2012). Hundreds of scouts from the NBA and professional leagues around the world will be in attendance.
The 62nd edition of the PIT will begin on Wednesday night and run through Saturday evening. All games will be played at Churchland High School Sports Complex.
The Winston-Salem, N.C. native leaves VCU as the only player in program history to rank in the top-20 in scoring (14th – 1,438 points) and top-10 in rebounds (3rd – 895), blocks (6th – 123) and steals (8th – 160).
With 11 double-doubles this past year, Reddic moved his career total to 28, which is tied for third-most in school history with current Milwaukee Buck Larry Sanders.
Reddic will be on the Norfolk Sports Club squad. He will be joined by UNC-Asheville's DJ Cunningham, Buffalo's Javon McCrea, Oral Roberts' Shawn Glover, Northwestern's Drew Crawford, Belmont's JJ Mann, Loyola Marymount's Anthony Ireland and Penn State's Tim Frazier. Coaching the team will be Mike Head and Mark Butts with help from Ronald Allen.
