Billy Garrett Jr. Chases Dream in the G League


On a frigid New York Friday evening in February in the Westchester County suburb of White Plains, former DePaul great Billy Garrett Jr. finds himself at peace warming up inside the Westchester County Center for the Westchester Knicks game against the Greensboro Swarm that night.

His pre-game routine is not something out of the ordinary as he stretches and puts up some shots; but for all the blood, sweat and tears he has shed at Morgan Park High School and at DePaul, he values the precious opportunity that has been afforded to him in the NBA’s G League.

As a former Big East Freshman of the Year, a 1,000-point scorer and DePaul’s all-time leader in made free throws, Garrett feels blessed for the chance to realize his dreams in the NBA’s developmental league.
