The Pittsburgh Basketball Show: Blake Hinson Talks NBA Goals, Top Pitt Moment



The latest episode of The Pittsburgh Basketball Show features Blake Hinson, the former Pitt sharpshooter turned pro.

Former Pitt basketball sharpshooter Blake Hinson is all smiles heading into the NBA Draft.

Hinson, after two seasons at Pitt, is heading to the draft with high hopes for his career in professional basketball, and rightfully so. He joined George Michalowski on The Pittsburgh Basketball Show ahead of draft night to break down his career at Pitt, his time preparing for the draft, his relationships with the current Pitt team and staff, and much more.

Hinson even told PSN about the one question that stumped him in NBA Draft interviews. Check it all out in the latest episode of The Pittsburgh Basketball Show below.

Hinson competed at the NBA G League Elite Camp from May 9 to May 12 in Chicago after not receiving an invitation to the NBA Combine.

The 6-foot-8 forward averaged a career-high 18.8 points per game this past season along with 4.6 rebounds. Hinson hit 106 three pointers on the season, hitting 42% of his shots from beyond the arch. The Deltona, Florida native has scored more than 20 points 14 different times this year, and set a season-high with 41 points in a recent win over Louisville.

Hinson earned First Team All-ACC honors after he set numerous records for the Panthers this season, including the most three pointers in a season and the most three pointers in a game (9 against the West Virginia Mountaineers). He ended up working out for the Boston Celtics, the Memphis Grizzlies, the San Antonio Spurs, and the Charlotte Hornets, among other NBA teams that checked him out in the process.
