Friday, four former Illinois prep athletes saw minutes in a G League game. Below I look into and share each of their G League performances from February 19.
Kahlil Whitney, Greensboro Swarm
Kahlil Whitney is another former Illinois prep basketball player and I missed his first two games in my posts but will be updating the other posts to include his performances. Here’s the latest…
Kahlil Whitney first stepped onto the Illinois basketball scene playing for Eric Solorio Academy his freshman year. It would be his only high school season played in Illinois before heading to Roselle, New Jersey. There he played for Roselle Catholic High School.
After high school, he went on to play for Coach Calipari at the University of Kentucky. He played just 18 games including 8 starts and averaged 3.3 points and 1.7 rebounds. On January 24, 2020, he stepped away from the program and left Kentucky.
He ended up declaring for the NBA Draft but went undrafted. He signed an Exhibit 10 deal with the Charlotte Hornets ahead of the preseason and was waived at the conclusion of training camp. He was ultimately added to the Hornets’ G League affiliate, Greensboro Swarm.
- Kahlil Whitney (Solorio)- 9 minutes, 4 points, 2/2 FG, 0/1 FT, an offensive rebound, 3 total rebounds, an assist, a block, and -7 in a 118-98 loss to the Memphis Hustle.
