Former UL Star Jakeenan Gant Works Out For Memphis Grzzlies
A former member of the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns was trying to impress one NBA team over the weekend.
JaKeenan Gant, a two-time All-Sun Belt Conference First Team selection the past two seasons for Louisiana, was among a list of six players who worked out for the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday.
The 2018-2019 Sun Belt Conference Defensive Player of the Year, Gant averaged 20.4 points, to go along with 8.5 rebounds, 2.7 blocks, and 1.2 assists per game last season.
The 6-foot-8, 215-pound Gant was the only NCAA Division I player to average at least 20 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 2.7 blocks per contest.
A native of Springfield, Georgia, Gant scored over 1,000 career point (1,074) in only two seasons at UL.
