For all his sensitivity — the tattoo of Baby Please, the remembrance to his grandmother and the tribute to Jordan — Trent is notably guarded. Almost to the point of being intimidating. So perhaps not surprisingly, on the back of his left arm, near his shoulder, is a tattoo of a ski mask. “That kind of explains who I am as a person; I don’t let anybody in,” Trent Jr. said. “It’s like a mask, in a sense. It’s just the way I was raised. I keep stuff in, I don’t really show emotion, except on the court. But I’m always behind the mask, you will never know if I’m going through something.”
Other notable players already seen on campus Saturday include Gary Trent, Jr., who was a part of the Duke team that lost to Kansas in the Elite Eight last season. Teammate Marvin Bagley III and former Blue Devil Jayson Tatum have already said that they will not be in Durham for the game. Tatum is participating in the Taco Bell Skills Challenge at All-Star Saturday Night.

Trent Jr. is 6-6 and a sinewy 210 pounds, in part by design through years of conditioning work spearheaded by his father. “I’ve done his player development since he was 5,” Trent Sr. says by phone in an interview from his home in Minneapolis. That has included personal training that steered away from time in the weight room and focused on natural development. “Yout can’t put kids on weights until they’re 14 or 15,” says Trent
Bobby Marks, ESPN: The Hamidou Diallo (Oklahoma City) and Khyri Thomas (Detroit) signings now have 17 players selected in the second round of the June Draft under contract. Each of the second round picks have at a minimum of three years on their contract except for Jevon Carter (Memphis). The point guard was restricted to only two years because Memphis had signed Kyle Anderson to the full midlevel exception. The top three players with the most guaranteed money are Rodions Kurucs ($4.8M), Jalen Brunson ($4.3M) and Gary Trent Jr. ($3.9M). In addition, the last three players selected in the second round, Thomas Welsh, George King and Kostas Antetokounmpo were signed to Two-Way Contracts.

Portland thrived on a balanced attack and a deep roster stacked with current and former NBA-roster players, including rookies Anfernee Simons and Gary Trent Jr. and veterans Zach Collins, Caleb Swanigan, Wade Baldwin IV, Archie Goodwin, K.J. McDaniels and John Jenkins. “Every one of the guys on our team and something to prove,” Blazers coach Terry Stotts told The Crossover. “We had two rookies, we had Zach and Caleb who were rookies last year and needed to be in Summer League. Wade Baldwin and Jake Layman really hadn’t done much on the NBA stage. K.J. McDaniels and Archie Goodwin have bounced around. We had some experienced players but there wasn’t one guy who didn’t need to be in Summer League and show what they could do.”

“Y’all only saw my son do the speed limit,” the elder Trent Sr. said in phone interview on Saturday. He said his son, and Duke’s other players, had to sacrifice some of their abilities in order to try to win a national championship. Duke finished with a 28-9 record and lost 85-81 in overtime to Kansas in the NCAA tournament’s Elite 8. Trent Sr. said the way the system was designed, his son brought something that was needed and that’s how he was used.

Trent Sr. said his son is without a doubt signing an agent. His son’s dream has not been to make it in the NBA, but “to stay in the NBA,” he said. “If I didn’t feel my son had a strong enough mindset, a strong enough character and a strong enough work ethic, I would not recommend this for him and he would not consider it himself,” he said. This is not a forced decision by Duke. This is not a forced decision by his family. This is a dream that he wanted to pursue.”
