Ghanaian-American Guard Milan Acquaah has spoken extensively about the experiences he gained by participating in the 2020 NBA Draft Combine.
After the conclusion of the 2018-2019 season, Acquaah declared for the NBA mainly to gauge his level of readiness for life as a professional player and the aspects of his game he needs to work on.
Speaking to Columnist Jim Alexander, the 6 foot 3 inch playmaker detailed workout sessions he had at LA Lakers practice facility, getting scouted by a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder and working out with Lonzo Ball. Lonzo and Acquaah were teammates at Chino Hills High School before the latter transferred the middle of his 2012-2013 freshman year.
“(the scouts) definitely told me about my playmaking, that it has to take a jump this next season…And then just continue to expand my range and shooting” Acquaah said.
The Catholic Baptist University player averaged 18.1 points, 4.9 rebounds and 5.8 assists in 31 games in his second season. It was Catholic Baptist’s debut season in College Basketball’s Division I; Acquaah transferred from Washington State University after his second season.
He has returned to Catholic Baptist after pulling his name out of the Combine; Acquaah’s father is Ghanaian.
