Sioux Falls, SD – The Sioux Falls Skyforce announced today that the team will host local player tryouts in Sioux Falls, South Dakota on Saturday, September 18 and in Miami, Florida on Saturday, September 25.
Open tryouts offer prospective players an opportunity to showcase their talents in front of Skyforce coaches and Miami HEAT personnel while they compete to earn an invitation to the NBA G League team’s training camp in October.
“We’re very excited to get Sioux Falls basketball back at the Sanford Pentagon for 2021-22 season,” said HEAT Director of Player Personnel and Skyforce General Manager Eric Amsler. “What better way to start by giving young players a chance to showcase their skills at local tryouts. We have a long history here in Miami of uncovering diamonds in the rough – from Udonis Haslem years ago to Duncan Robinson a few years back. We approach these local tryouts the same way we do at any event where players are trying to make the next step in their professional careers. You never know where you can make a name for yourself.”
