Jordan Ray of the JBA’s Atlanta Ballers will declare for the 2019 NBA Draft, he told Amico Hoops on Monday.
The 6-foot-3 guard averaged more than 30 points per game on the recent JBA international tour.
According to the JBA’s official website, Ray had a 3.6 GPA in high school and scored a 27 on his ACT. He had high praise for the JBA, owned by LaVar Ball.
“I definitely credit the JBA for getting me ready for this,” Ray told Amico Hoops in a phone interview. “The JBA definitely got me to an NBA level.”
Ray will be eligible for the upcoming 2019 NBA Draft this June, because he will be one year removed from high school.
In the meantime Ray is staying at the infamous Ball Estate (the mansion in California owned by LaVar Ball and his family) and he believes he is a sure-fire NBA Draft Pick.
“I don’t see any guards capable of what I’m doing at my size as in putting up points and assists,” Ray said. “I believe I’m a lottery pick.”
