The NBA trade deadline brought together a number of old NCAA basketball teammates, including a trio of former Duke Blue Devils. Which current NBA teammates suited up together in college?
Former Duke basketball stars and NCAA Tournament champions Justise Winslow, Tyus Jones and Grayson Allen were recently reunited in Memphis, courtesy of an at-the-deadline trade that shipped Winslow from the Miami Heat to the Grizzlies.
Once Winslow and Allen return from injury, the three former Blue Devils will take the court together for the first time since they cut down the nets as freshmen five years ago. All three made the NCAA’s All-Tournament team that year when Duke toppled Wisconsin for the title.
But the former Duke stars aren’t the only NBA teammates who played together in college. The Grizzlies also brought in former Oregon Ducks star Jordan Bell at the deadline to pair with ex-college teammate Dillon Brooks. And the same deal that sent Winslow to Memphis saw former Marquette teammates Jae Crowder and Jimmy Butler join forces again in Miami.
Which other NBA teammates also teamed up in the NCAA? We’ve compiled a list.
