Former Michigan shooter Zac Irvin is back in the NBA G League, joining Denver Nuggets G League affiliate Grand Rapids Gold.
Irvin has bounced back since leaving Michigan in 2017, playing for multiple G League teams and overseas in places like the Dominican Republic, Italy, Mexico, Taiwan, and more.
The NBA G League is a great place for players to learn about professional teams, as 28 of the 30 teams are affiliated directly with NBA franchises. According to the G League website, a record 47% of players on the NBA’s 2022-23 start-of-season rosters had former G League experience. Pascal Siakam, Rudy Gobert and Jordan Poole are names you might recognize, but every NBA team has at least one G League alum on their roster this season.
Irvin played 142 games for Michigan from 2013 to 2017, starting 104 of them. He has 4,225 minutes, which is fourth all-time for the Wolverines, and sits 13th in all-time scoring with 1,610 career points in the Maize and Blue.
