NBA Seasons: 10
Damien Wilkins will spend his first season in the BIG3 with the Triplets. The former McDonald’s All-American went undrafted out of Georgia, but was signed by the Seattle Supersonics as an undrafted free agent in 2004.
He stayed in the NBA as a reliable role player until 2013. He played in the G-League, China, and Puerto Rico until 2018, when he returned to the NBA as a member of the Indiana Pacers. On top of his ongoing playing career, Wilkins is the General Manager and Head of Basketball at Overtime Elite, a professional league for 16-20 year olds.
Wilkins is both experienced and reliable, and I’d expect him to fit in nicely with the other veteran players on Lisa Leslie’s squad.
