As if Sierra Canyon didn’t seem stacked enough, another son of an NBA legend will be playing high school ball in Los Angeles this upcoming season.
Ashton Hardaway, son of NBA legend and Memphis Tigers Coach Penny Hardaway, has transferred to Sierra Canyon, a school spokesperson told the Los Angeles Times.
Hardaway, a four-star recruit and the No. 115 ranked player in the 2023 class according to Rivals.com, transferred from Duncanville High School in Texas. He averaged 10 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 1.3 assists per game and helped Duncanville finish with a 35-1 record and a third-straight 6A state championship last season.
The 6-7 senior holds scholarship offers from USC, Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, and Boston College, among others. Sierra Canyon will now feature four sons of NBA legends, as Hardaway will join Bronny and Bryce James, and Justin Pippen to only build upon Sierra Canyon’s powerhouse of a roster. But the star power doesn’t end there, as Isaiah Elohim, the No. 4 player of the 2024 class per 247Sports.com, will make Sierra Canyon a national favorite in the Mission League this coming season.
Hardaway is expected to play on Sierra Canyon’s upcoming foreign tour next week. A club team consisting of mostly Sierra Cayon players will play exhibition games in London, Paris, and Rome that will be aired on the ESPN networks.
