WALNUT CREEK, Calif. USA

Thursday, February 04, 2021

Televised matchups against 15 NBA G League opponents highlight an exciting single-site slate for the NBA G League Ignite, whose 2021 season tips off next month at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort. All 15 of Igniteís games will be played at AdventHealth Arena, with 10 games airing live on ESPN2 or ESPNU and five streaming on ESPN+.

Ignite, coached by five-time NBA Champion Brian Shaw and featuring top 2021 NBA Draft prospects including Jalen Green, Jonathan Kuminga, Isaiah Todd and Daishen Nix, makes its debut on Wednesday, Feb. 10 against NBA veteran Jeremy Lin and the Santa Cruz Warriors.

In addition to Santa Cruz, the slate includes 14 other G League opponents throughout the regular-season schedule, which runs through Saturday, March 6. Ignite will compete to be among the top eight teams who will advance to a single-elimination playoff beginning on March 8, with the NBA G Final on March 11.

NBA G League Ignite is a first-of-its-kind team dedicated to developing top young prospects in preparation for the NBA Draft. Based in Walnut Creek, Calif., and coached by five-time NBA champion Brian Shaw, the roster includes elite players who are eligible for the 2021 NBA Draft as well as NBA and NBA G League veterans who serve as mentors to the teamís young talent.

The one-year program focuses on high-level competition and accelerated on-court development for players who are beginning their professional careers. Additionally, the team provides life skills training that includes financial literacy education, community service involvement and scholarship opportunities. While Ignite is not a traditional NBA G League team, competition includes games against NBA G League opponents and exhibitions against international teams.
