Northwestern has an NBA player, people.
That player is Reggie Hearn, who recently signed a two-way contract with the Pistons.
Hearn played for Bill Carmody at Northwestern from 2009-2013, scoring 7.1 points per game in his career, including 13.4 points per contest as a senior. He notably began his career as a walk-on. Hearn also played for Team USA in World Cup Qualifying under Jeff Van Gundy, where he averaged 11.5 points and 6 rebounds per game. He most recently played for the Reno Big Horns in the NBA G-League.
The Fort Wayne, Indiana native signed a two-way contract, meaning he can spend up to 45 days in the NBA. So, in all likelihood he'll bounce around between the NBA and the G-League.
Hearn is now the only Northwestern alum in the NBA. Drew Crawford signed a deal with the Raptors in 2016, but was waived less than three months later.
