    Five-Star combo guard Jaden Hardy has officially signed with NBA G League Ignite, NBA G League President Shareef Abdur-Rahim announced Wednesday.

    “I would like to thank God for blessing me,” Hardy said in a press release Wednesday. “I would like to thank my family and friends for their love and support. I am so excited and fired up that I am turning pro and playing for the NBA G League Ignite.”

    Hardy, a 6-foot-4, 190-pound combo guard out of Coronado (NV) High School, averaged 30.4 points, 9.1 rebounds and 8.4 assists per game as a junior, earning Nevada Gatorade Player of the Year honors.

    He was unable to participate in a normal high school season as a senior due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Ranked by 247Sports.com as the No. 1 combo guard and No. 3 overall prospect in the class of 2021, Hardy joins 2021 five-star forward Michael Foster Jr. and 2022 five-star guard Scoot Henderson as the third player to take the G League Ignite route this offseason.
