Konchar waits for NBA season to resume

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WPTA21) - John Konchar is like all other National Basketball Association players, waiting for the league to determine if and when the season will resume.

Konchar, Purdue Fort Wayne men's basketball's all time scoring leader, has been doing his waiting in Memphis since March when he and his Memphis Grizzlies teammates were idled by the coronavirus pandemic.

Konchar has been running and riding his bike to stay in shape and says he has enjoyed Memphis since he got there last fall.

He spent time with the G League Memphis Hustle, based in a northern Mississippi city 14 miles south of Memphis, and his solid play there earned an extended stay with the Grizzlies, where he has proved to be a valuable player off the bench.

Konchar will wait to see how this season ends, and then see what happens for next season, when he is an unrestricted free agent.
