Five-star recruit and projected lottery pick Trentyn Flowers has signed with the NBL Next Stars program and will join the Adelaide 36ers for NBL24.

The six-foot-eight guard recently de-committed from the University of Louisville to join Adelaide’s roster.

“I couldn’t be more excited to join the NBL and become a 36er,” Flowers said in an NBL media release.

“This is going to be an incredible opportunity for me to grow my game, play alongside incredible talent, and learn at a high level.”

The 18-year-old joins the ever-growing next-star class of ’24, with fellow American AJ Johnson (Illawarra), Australians Alex Toohey and Rocco Zikarsky, Bobi Klintman, Ariel Hukporti, Mantas Rubstavicius and Alex Sarr.

Flowers averaged 17.9 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 block per game as a junior at Combine Academy, leading his squad to a 37-5 record and the Phenom HoopState Championship title.

He was a standout at last year’s Nike EYBL Peach Jam, collecting 21 points, 10.4 rebounds and four assists in 40 minutes per game.

“We are thrilled to welcome Trentyn to the Next Stars program and believe he will bring great excitement to the 36ers,” GM of Next Stars Recruitment Liam Santamaria said.

“Possessing great positional size, strength and explosiveness, Trentyn has the potential to make an immediate impact this season. He is extremely versatile, with an ability to score at every level as well as facilitate for others.”

“Under the tutelage of CJ Bruton, we have great confidence that Trentyn will experience tremendous development in Adelaide, as he advances towards the NBA Draft.”

He joins Australian Boomers Mitch McCarron and Isaac Humphries on the Adelaide roster.
