A future Duke basketball player got elite coaching at Peach Jam. 

The eyes of the basketball world have shifted from Las Vegas, Nevada to North Augusta, South Carolina as the EYBL Peach Jam tips off with a plethora of future Duke basketball stars in attendance.

Jared McCain, a four-star Blue Devil commit, took the floor on Monday afternoon with TeamWhyNot, sponsored by former NBA Most Valuable Player Russell Westbrook, and got some coaching from the nine-time All-Star.

Westbrook has been the subject of major scrutiny this offseason after a disappointing first year with the Los Angeles Lakers as his name has been circulating among trade rumors since the completion of the NBA Finals.

McCain has accomplished a lot this summer, most notably winning a gold medal at the FIBA Americas Championship with the U18 USA Basketball in June.

The 6-foot-2 guard is ranked as the No. 23 player in the Class of 2023, No. 2 shooting guard, and No. 5 player in the state of California, according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
