MarJon Beauchamp Signs With G League Ignite

Sep 23, 2021 1:54 PM

MarJon Beauchamp has signed with the NBA's G League Ignite program. Beauchamp was the No. 47 prospect in the ESPN class of 2020.

"I thought this was the best route I could go," Beauchamp said. "I've been off the radar for a while, but I'm glad to get an opportunity from [G League executives] Rod Strickland and Shareef Abdur-Rahim. It represents a lot for me, and I have to thank them. I'm confident that I can be a top pick next year with this platform."

The 19-year-old Beauchamp originally signed with Chameleon BX in August of 2019, a training program based in San Francisco founded by former Memphis Tigers strength coach Frank Matrisciano that recruited several highly regarded high school prospects.

Beauchamp joins five-star high school recruits Jaden Hardy, Scoot Henderson and Michael Foster on Ignite's roster for the 2021-22 season, as well as Australian Dyson Daniels, a projected top-20 pick.
