Is it time to return? Complicated. According to journalist Jeff García, Johnny O’Bryant has received the interest of the Milwaukee Bucks, Golden State Warriors and Brooklyn Nets, teams with whom he would have conducted private training sessions in the face of an eventual return to the NBA.
Even if you have thought about the possibility of incorporating it, that does not mean that it is close to becoming a reality. In the weeks leading up to the training camp, it is common for teams to test quite a few players, even if some of them have been away from the league for some time, as is the case with O’Bryant.
Picked 36th in the 2014 draft, Johnny O’Bryant spent four seasons in American competition playing for the Milwaukee Bucks, Denver Nuggets and Charlotte Hornets. In this journey he played a total of 147 games to average 3.5 points and 2.4 rebounds in 11.5 minutes per night. With no place in the NBA, from 2018 to 2021 he has played in Europe, living the last season at the Red Star.
