Legends local tryout full, another scheduled

With more than 120 players registered, the Texas Legends have capped their Sept. 8 local tryouts. The Legends will hold another tryout on Oct. 20 for any other players interested.

“After such Legends as Booker Woodfox, Anthony Vereen and Ramon Dyer realized their dream through previous years’ local tryouts, we are excited to see this season’s tryout weekend completely full with over 120 players from across the country,” Legends director of player personnel Travis Blakeley said. “We are going to work the guys hard over two days, compete and hope to uncover that proverbial diamond-in-the-rough.”

Registration for the Oct. 20 tryouts will cost $100 up to Oct. 10, and $150 thereafter.

The Legends tryouts give prospective players the opportunity to showcase their talents in front of President of Basketball Operations Spud Webb, General Manager Del Harris, and Assistant General Manager Nancy Lieberman. Participants will compete to earn an invitation to the team’s training camp, which will begin in early November. Space is limited in the tryouts as the Legends hosted more than 125 participants at last season’s event. Tryouts are being held on September 8th and September 9th.

Applicants can pre-register by submitting the official registration, disclosure and release forms, in addition to a NBA D-League mandated $100 non-refundable fee by October 10th. The fee for day of registration will be $150. Pre-registration payments may be made by money order, cashier’s check, cash, or via credit card. Day of registration payments must be made by money order, cashier’s check, Credit Card or cash. Application forms are available below.
