Steph Curry, Russell Westbrook and John Calipari have already sung the praises of Oklahoma freshman guard Trae Young.
Now here comes LeBron James.
“I’ve seen Trae Young play ball since he was in the eighth grade,” James said. “He’s been a part of my camp the last few years before he went off to Oklahoma so I know what he’s all bout and what he’s doing now is very special. He’s a very special player, can add a lot to any team if he decides to come out and come into the draft.”
Young is averaging 30.5 points and 9.7 assists per game entering Tuesday night’s game against No. 5 Kansas on ESPN.
