MarJon Beauchamp signs with NBA G League Ignite

WALNUT CREEK, Calif., Sept. 23, 2021 – MarJon Beauchamp, a former four-star recruit, has signed with NBA G League Ignite, NBA G League President Shareef Abdur-Rahim announced today.

Beauchamp joins an Ignite roster that features top young standouts Jaden Hardy, Michael Foster Jr., Scoot Henderson and Dyson Daniels. The team is coached by former NBA player Jason Hart.

“I chose the Ignite path because I know it’s going to prepare me both on and off the court,” Beauchamp said. “It’s a great opportunity to showcase my skills while staying humble and learning what it takes to be a professional.”

Beauchamp played at Yakima Valley College, where he averaged 30.7 points, 10.5 rebounds and 4.8 assists while shooting 52.5 percent from the field and 39.8 percent from three-point range in 12 games.

Ignite is coming off a successful inaugural season that produced NBA Lottery picks Jalen Green (No. 2 overall, Houston Rockets) and Jonathan Kuminga (No. 7 overall, Golden State Warriors). This year’s team will make its official debut Friday, Nov. 5 against the South Bay Lakers to tip off the 2021 NBA G League Showcase Cup.

Basketball News NBA Draft analyst Matt Babcock provided his thoughts on Beauchamp:

"I haven’t seen MarJon Beauchamp play live recently but I have been intrigued by him in the past. He's a long, wiry and athletic wing that possesses NBA upside. I currently have it penciled into my schedule to see the G League Ignite play against the South Bay Lakers on Nov. 5 in California. I’m certainly looking forward to getting a pulse on MarJon’s development and tracking him throughout the season."
