Trae Young will likely be selected early in Thursday's NBA draft, but the guard is already hearing from NBA stars heading into the start of his pro career.
"I'm a fan of his," Young said of Iverson, although he disputed that the two have similar styles on the court.
Iverson was inducted to the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2016 following a career that included 11 All-Star selections, four scoring titles and one MVP award.
He currently ranks seventh in NBA history in scoring average with 27.6 points per game in his 14 seasons.
Young clearly has a long way to go to reach this level, but he has already turned heads after averaging 27.4 points and 8.7 assists per game during his freshman year at Oklahoma.
Now he will join these players at the professional ranks as soon as he hears his name called on Thursday.
Bleacher Report's Jonathan Wasserman lists him as the No. 5 prospect in the class.
