Top Chinese prospect Fanbo Zeng is joining the G League Ignite on a one year deal.
Zeng averaged 15.5 points, 7.2 rebounds, 2.6 blocks and 2.1 assists as a sophomore at Windermere Prep in Florida – but returned to China due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Zeng, although initially classified as a high school senior, has completed his coursework and is eligible to enter the 2022 NBA Draft, per Jonathan Givony of ESPN.
This season, the G League Ignite will feature ESPN’s 2022 #3 prospect Jaden Hardy, #15 prospect Dyson Daniels, #31 prospect Michael Foster, #53 prospect MarJon Beauchamp, and 2023 top prospect Scoot Henderson.
Last season, three Ignite players were selected in the NBA Draft: Jalen Green (#2 overall), Jonathan Kuminga (#7 overall), and Isaiah Todd (#31) overall.
This season, Ignite may send even more players to the NBA.
