McKnight Invited To NBA G League Camp


Former University of Arkansas At Pine Bluff men’s basketball player Martaveous McKnight has been invited to the NBA G League Player Invitational Camp in Chicago.

In two seasons as a Golden Lion, McKnight scored exactly 1,300 points as a two-time first-team All-SWAC selection, earning both SWAC Player of the Year and Newcomer of the Year in 2017-18, and was a time BOXTOROW All-American.

This past season, the Walls, Miss. native averaged 20.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and just under three assists per contests. McKnight had a pair of 40-point scoring games, with a career-high 41 at Colorado State and 40 vs. Cal Baptist.

McKnight capped his career by being one of four players representing the Southwestern Athletic Conference in the 3-on-3 National Championship Tournament during NCAA Final Four Weekend.

“It’s a great honor and opportunity for him to be invited to the tryouts,” said UAPB Men’s Basketball Coach George Ivory. “McKnight is an exceptional talent and person and I’m very excited for him.”

McKnight and other NBA G League hopefuls are scheduled to participate Friday.
