Heading into this offseason, I decided to make COMBINE BASKETBALL my home base for on court skills and strength training and could not be happier with my decision. I plan on continuing my work with Jonah Baize and the rest of the staff at Combine Basketball for years to come.

I’m looking forward to a huge off-season with Combine Basketball. Working with Jonah throughout my career at Clemson University was extremely valuable in my journey to the NBA. Jonah is a guy that is able to push me to limits I had never seen before in workouts.
