Former Villanova Wildcat Joe Cremo has his eyes on the G-League Draft

Cremo will have a chance to join the NBA’s developmental league in October.

Happy Wednesday Nova Nation! Joe Cremo, the former Albany transfer who played for the Wildcats last season, is still pursuing his NBA dream. The native of upstate New York certainly has a number of connections to the league, having played with current NBA players at Villanova and growing up with friend and current Atlanta Hawks star Kevin Huerter. But if Cremo is going to have a chance at joining them he’ll need to earn it on his own.

That opportunity could come this October at the 2019 G-League Draft. Per a recent interview, Cremo has been working hard at his game and will be ready if the opportunity presents itself. But Cremo has also been actively reaching out to teams, and his focus is on one team in particular.

Cremo worked out with the Brooklyn Nets prior to the 2019 NBA Draft and now is on the radar of their G-League affiliate, the Long Island Nets. Cremo and his agent have remained in contact with the team, and it sounds like he’d love the opportunity to play professional basketball in his home state.

The Nova Nation is 100% behind Cremo as he looks to continue his basketball career. We’ll be pulling for him on draft day (October 26th), and hope to see him suiting up in the G-League this winter!
