Mo’ne Davis Becomes Third Woman to Be Drafted By the Harlem Globetrotters
On Tuesday, just a day shy of her 14th birthday, Mo’ne Davis got news that she was drafted by the Harlem Globetrotters. She won’t hit the road with the b-ball tricksters just yet, though. According to a release, the draft states that the the team is exercising a “Future Discovery Clause” that will obtain the rights to Mo’ne when she graduates college. The announcement, according to New York Mag, makes her the third woman to be drafted by the Globetrotters since they began drafting in 2007.
Though she’s most known for skills on the baseball field, basketball is apparently her favorite sport. She played on her high school’s varsity team and has stated that she hopes to play basketball at UConn.
She may get in some more game time in late July and early August when the Globetrotters return to the Philly area to play four games at the Wildwoods Convention Center. More info here.
Check out some clips of Davis on the court below, first in a guest appearance with the Globetrotters in March, and second at last year’s NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, when she pulled out some fancy footwork to spin around Kevin Hart to go in for a shot—which she made. Is it any wonder the Globetrotters wanted her?
