WATCH: 5-foot-7 Japanese Player Lights Up NBA Summer Leaugue

Yuki Togashi is a star in the Japanese Basketball League. Watch him compete in the NBA summer league.


Yuki Togashi, the 5-foot-7, 20-year-old point guard out of Japan's Basketball League has been making a name for himself in the NBA summer league in Las Vegas. Invited by the Dallas Mavericks, Togashi has only one more summer game to prove himself before the final roster is announced.

From the looks of it, Togashi might just steal the hearts of (not just) Dallas fans.

Togashi attended the same high school as Kevin Durant (Montrose Christian in Rockville, Maryland.) In one game against the Charlotte Hornets, he scored 12 points in 11 minutes.

He was named last year to the Japanese League's Best Five Team, averaging 15.3 points and 7.6 assists per game.

Check out the video below to get a feel for Togashi's game:
