Central Coast basketball star Jamaree Bouyea awaits 2022 NBA Draft

Seaside native Jamaree Bouyea is hoping to hear his name called on Thursday at the 2022 NBA Draft. Bouyea graduated from Palma School before attending the University of San Francisco. The 6’2 point guard played five seasons with the Dons. He led the team in scoring in each of those final two years (17.3 ppg) and was also named to the All-West Coast Conference First Team. Bouyea helped lead USF to the school’s first NCAA Tournament game in 24 years. There, he shined in a first-round matchup against Murray State. Bouyea scored 36 points in the Dons’ overtime loss. The 22-year-old has spent the offseason working out for several NBA teams ahead of the draft including the Golden State Warriors. Following a workout with the Los Angeles Lakers Bouyea said, “I think I’m bringing many things to the NBA. I can bring defense. I can bring offense. I can score the ball. If I have to pick up 94 feet as a guard, I can do that as well. I can also get my teammates open. I’m coming to the NBA to hopefully win games. I’m trying to win as many games as possible.”Bouyea is projected as a second-round pick. If he goes undrafted, Bouyea is expected to garner interest from teams as a possible two-way player in the NBA G-League. The NBA Draft begins Thursday, June 23 at 5:00 p.m. on Central Coast ABC.
