Recently released Portland Trail Blazers training camp invitee Chinanu Onuaku was drafted No. 2 overall in the G League Draft held on Saturday. The 6-10, 245 lb. former Louisville Cardinal made waves with Portland during the preseason with his hustle on the court and underhand free throw attempts.

The 21-year-old out of Baltimore, Maryland has played in six regular season games in his short NBA career and has stated goals of trying to latch on with a team through a two-way contract.
