Jalen Wilson Donates Money for Each Point and Assist in NBA Summer League

Former Kansas forward Jalen Wilson is already making an impact for the Brooklyn Nets on the court in the 2023 NBA Summer League, and while the scoring numbers have been impressive, what Wilson’s doing off the court might be even better.

The Brooklyn Nets’ rookie forward has announced that he alongside Wilson Basketball will be donating $100 per point scored, and $50 dollars per assist that Wilson records to local Brooklyn YMCAs.

 

Through this point in the season, Wilson has logged a total of $7,050 dollars for the local YMCAs with 66 points scored, and nine assists recorded. Wilson was selected with the 51st overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft by the Brooklyn Nets joining former teammate Gradey Dick, Baylor’s Keyonte George, and Kansas State’s Keyontae Johnson as the four members from the Big 12 Conference to hear their name called on draft night.

Wilson is competing in the NBA Summer League against other rookies, Summer League veterans, and international players for a shot to step on the court for the first time in the NBA in October. Wilson has helped lead the Nets to a record of 3-1 in the NBA Summer League, quickly becoming one of the next former Big 12 members to find success in the NBA.
