The Adelaide 36ers will again have a Next Star on their roster after announcing the signing of projected NBA draft lottery pick Trentyn Flowers.

Following on from the success of now Oklahoma City Thunder star Josh Giddey and recently drafted Indiana Pacer Mojave King, 36ers owner Grant Kelley said he’s looking forward to seeing how Flowers goes at the club.

“We have had a great track record with Next Stars, with Josh and Mojave King getting drafted to the NBA in 2021 and 2023 respectively, and prior to that Terrance Ferguson in 2017,” Kelley said.

“We expect Trentyn’s time at our club to be successful, not only in terms of his career, but also for the Adelaide 36ers and our loyal fans.”

The 204cm point guard had committed to NCAA college Louisville, and said the choice to join the 36ers instead was tough, but one for the betterment of his career.

“I couldn’t be more excited to join the NBL and become a 36er,” Flowers said.

“This is going to be an incredible opportunity for me to grow my game, play alongside incredible talent, and learn at a high level.”
