On July 5, the Golden State Prep announced the signing of NBA Academy India's Jagshaanbir Singh.
The 19-year old was among the first prospects for the Academy when it was first set up in India in 2017. Within a couple of months of joining the Academy, Singh was part of NBA's Asia Pacific Camp held in China in 2017.
The 6-10 center will join the postgraduate program at Golden State Prep, an institute based in the Napa Valley, California.
