A goal of every G-Leaguer is to eventually rise from the developmental ranks and into the big time of the NBA.
Last week, it was announced that former WNBA player Allison Feaster would be in charge of its professional path initiative. Feaster will work alongside Rod Strickland, who was tapped by the NBA as its professional path program manager.
She played for 10 seasons in the WNBA which included playing for the Charlotte Sting, Indiana Fever, and Los Angeles Sparks. Feaster will lead a group that will identify eligible players as well as overseeing the implementation of the professional path program. Strickland will teach those eligible G-Leaguers the ins and outs of the path to the pros.
I’m excited to lead a group that will identify the next wave of elite players who may want to join that pursuit before they’re eligible for the NBA Draft.
–Allison Feaster per press release
I’m confident that we are positioned to successfully inform elite young players and their families about the NBA G League’s newly-created professional path, which can help them accelerate their NBA ambitions.
–G-League president Malcolm Turner per press release
Feaster served as the G-League’s head of player personnel and coach relations since last year.
