Feb 27, 2021 2:42 PM

The G League is being "very aggressive" in approaching top recruits to fill out the 2022 Ignite roster, sources told Jonathan Givony of ESPN.

Top-10 prospects Jaden Hardy and Michael Foster are currently considered "leans" to join the team.

The G League is also making a push for top-ranked recruit Chet Holmgren, with five-star prospect Efton Reid also another possibility.

Givony adds that the progress of NCAA's name, image, and likeness legislation is a wild card in a player's decision to choose college over the G League.
