    Dyson Daniels, a 6-foot-6 guard from NBA Global Academy in Canberra, Australia, has signed with the NBA G League Ignite, NBA G League President Shareef Abdur-Rahim announced Monday.

    “I’m so blessed to be joining Ignite and I’m ready to take my game to the next level,” Daniels said in a press release Monday.

    Daniels, the No. 18 prospect in the ESPN’s 2022 mock draft, has emerged as one of Australia’s top young prospects, participating in the NBA Academy Games 2019, exhibition games at the 2019 NBA G League Winter Showcase and the 2020 Torneo Junior Ciutat de L’Hospitalet in Barcelona, Spain.

    He previously represented Australia at the FIBA U15 Oceania Championships before receiving an invitation to join Australia’s senior national team in FIBA competition this February, pouring in 23 points alongside four assists, three rebounds and six steals against New Zealand. Daniels is currently training with the Australian national team for the FIBA U19 Basketball World Cup 2021, set for July 3-11.

    He joins India’s Princepal Singh (NBA Academy India) as the second NBA Academy graduate to sign with Ignite.

    Daniels also joins five-stars Michael Foster Jr., Jaden Hardy and Scoot Henderson among the 2021 G League Ignite newcomers.
