After waiting to see what the Las Vegas standout and 3 Star prospect would decide to do, the answer is finally here; Je’Rell Springer will be joining Jordan Ray, and Deon Lyle amongst JBA Stars who have went on to declare for the NBA Draft.

He does so on the heels of a very impressive International Tour where he seamlessly fit in amongst the JBA’s Elite and went around the World racking up points and wins across the globe.

His international tour stats may have been his most impressive, as he found a way to play off ball and dominate in multiple areas of the game. During the JBA regular season he made a name for himself scoring nearly 30 points a night and leading Seattle to the JBA Championship. Where he lost to Lamelo and Liangelo Ball while posting 32 Points 6 Rebounds and 4 Assists. 

Je’rell Springer wouldn’t stop there, he had many coming of age moments during the JBA tour. Taking over down the stretch in multiple games for JBA USA he became a reliable option for Lamelo Ball. His signature moment probably being when JBA USA was down by 1 with a few minutes left in the 4th quarter and Springer gives us this JBA POSTER.

Springer has been compared to Russell Westbrook, who was also a 3-Star prospect coming out of High School. Springer is an insanely athletic guard who currently stands at 6’6 180. He’s got the all-around skill to compete at the next level and he has the height; his biggest weakness is still only being 180 pounds. As he grows into his man body though, he is a legitimate NBA level prospect.

Will we hear any of these JBA Stars names called on draft night? Or will we have to wait for them get a shot in summer league? One thing is for sure, they all have potential and games that we believe can translate to the NBA level. As a 6’6 Point Guard we believe Springer has a real shot to make the league at some point. Is his time now?
