Two area basketball players are looking to make the jump to the NBA. Jaden Ivy and Blake Wesley both announced this week their intentions to leave school early and declare for the NBA draft.
Ivy, a sophomore guard at Purdue, played high school hoops at La Lumiere after transferring from Mishawaka Marian. He’s expected to be one of the top picks in the draft.
Wesley just finished his freshman season at Notre Dame. Prior to that, he played for South Bend Riley.
It could be the first time ever that two players from this area get picked in the first round of the same NBA draft.
