Melbourne United’s Jack White is set to sign a two-way deal with the Denver Nuggets, as announced by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

It has been an incredible few months for the star forward, helping Melbourne United clinch the NBL22 minor premiership, followed by his first Australian Boomers selection, and now after a successful stint in the NBA’s Summer League, his first NBA contract.

Speaking recently to Melbourne United Media, White spoke of his dream of playing in the top league in world.

“This is an amazing opportunity for me to take another step towards living out my dream of playing in the NBA, so I couldn’t be more grateful to the Nuggets for giving me a shot.” White said.

White joins a growing cohort of players from Melbourne United that have taken the leap into the NBA, following championship teammate Jock Landale, as well as NBA Summer League players Jo Lual-Acuil Jnr and Yudai Baba.

Melbourne United would like to officially congratulate Jack White on signing in the NBA. The club’s CEO Nick Truelson spoke of the pride felt by the organisation.

“We could not be more proud of Jack. We have seen the incredible amount of work he has put in, and with the talent he has we had a feeling that this was a real possibility for him when he was selected to play in the Summer League.

“Jack is a fantastic person, athlete and player, and we can’t wait to see what he can do now that he has been given this opportunity in the NBA.”

“This shall obviously change the dynamic of our NBL23 roster, but Dean Vickerman and I have had a highly productive week over here watching the NBA Summer League, and we have planned for this scenario.”

“We are confident that although we shall miss Whitey at our club this season, that we will be able to now put the pieces together that will give us the best chance at taking that next step and really contesting for that championship this season.”

“At Melbourne United, we pride ourselves on being a destination club for both local and international players. To be able to help these athletes become the best version of themselves and further their chances to reach the NBA will continue to be a focus for our organisation.”

Melbourne United fans will be watching the club’s announcements with great anticipation, with a number of players still to join the NBL23 roster, as well as the release of the NBL23 NBL schedule.

With the hype beginning to build for the upcoming season, Melbourne United Memberships are selling fast, with some categories already sold out. Melbourne United Memberships are the best and most affordable way for fans to watch the NBL and be part of their favourite club, so now is the TIME TO UNITE!
