Quinn Ellis has received an invite to the prestigious adidas Eurocamp, a multi-day showcase of Europe’s most elite NBA draft-eligible athletes and the only officially sanctioned NBA pre-draft camp outside of the US.
Back for the first time since 2017, the international camp’s 16th edition returns to where it all began at the La Ghirada Sports Complex in Treviso, Italy on June 9-11.
It is historically attended by hundreds of NBA and EuroLeague team personnel, coaches, scouts and agents, adidas Eurocamp offers next gen athletes ages 18-22 the unique opportunity to be coached by current NBA coaches and players and show off their impressive skills on a world stage.
Ellis – represented by Tangram Sports – declared for the draft in April as an early-entrant, where he can test the waters to garner interest with the option to withdraw until June 12, with the draft scheduled to take place on June 22 at the Barclays Center in New York.
This year’s event will also debut its inaugural Girls Camp on June 13-15, marking the first time that female athletes will be featured in the prestigious event.
London Lions Women’s GM Vanja Cernevic will be the Coaching Director of the inaugural Girls Camp, while Brit Ines Goryanova and Sienna Betts – the daughter of GB legend Andy Betts – will both be playing after standout years in high school in the states.
Ellis joins a handful of Brits who have previously competed in the men’s edition, including Andrew Lawrence, Ovie Soko and Devon van Oostrum, Mo Soluade and Joel Freeland – who was drafted by Portland off the back of a strong showing.
Over its 15 previous editions, adidas Eurocamp has produced more than 150 former and current NBA and EuroLeague players. Notable alumni include adidas Basketball’s Goran Dragic (Chicago Bulls), Lu Dort (Oklahoma City Thunder) and Danilo Gallinari (Boston Celtics), as well as Bogdan Bogdanovic (Atlanta Hawks), Jusuf Nurkic (Portland Trail Blazers), Jaylen Brown (Boston Celtics) and many more.
Forty-one former adidas Eurocamp participants currently hold NBA contracts and 71 currently play in EuroLeague Basketball. With the addition of the Girls Camp, this year’s adidas EuroCamp is set to make an even wider impact than ever before.
