Following a great game earlier this fall, former Russellville Panther star Pedro Bradshaw seemed to be forgotten by the Salt Lake City Stars, the G League team that’s part of the Utah Jazz organization.

Soon after the Stars cut the 2017 Mr. Kentucky Basketball finalist, the Sioux Falls Skyforce of South Dakota signed him off waivers. He is now part of the Miami Heat organization.

The remainder of the Skyforce December schedule finds the team on the road. They will play two games in Detroit this week before going to Chicago and then heading to Santa Cruz, Calif. for a Dec. 29 game against the Warriors’ G League team.

Many of the Skyforce’s games will be televised on ESPN+, including Wednesday’s 6 p.m. game against the Pistons’ top developmental team.
