Former Michigan shooting guard Zack Irvin is back in the NBA G League, joining the G League affiliate of the Denver Nuggets, the Grand Rapids Gold.
Irvin has bounced around since departing Michigan in 2017, playing on several G League teams and overseas in the Dominican Republic, Italy, Mexico, Taiwan and elsewhere.
The NBA G League is a great place for players to gain exposure to professional teams, as 28 of the 30 teams are direct affiliates of NBA franchises. According to the G League website, a record 47% of players on NBA start-of-season rosters for 2022–2023 had prior G League experience. Pascal Siakam, Rudy Gobert, and Jordan Poole are just a few names you may recognize, but every NBA team has at least one G League alumnus on their roster this season.
Irvin played in 142 games for Michigan from 2013–2017, starting 104 of them. He racked up 4,225 minutes, fourth all-time for a Wolverine, and ranks 13th all-time in scoring in the Maize and Blue with 1,610 career points.
