Nets’ Garrett Temple preparing for law school while NBA is in hiatus

Brooklyn Nets veteran small forward Garrett Temple is preparing for Law School while the NBA is in a hiatus due to the coronavirus.

Temple went to college at LSU. The Nets swingman says he’s thought about going to Law School after his NBA career is done, so he might as well study now since there’s nothing else to do:

“I’ve been practicing for the LSAT prep,” Garrett Temple said in an interview with YES Network’s Michael Grady, via Kristian Winfield of The New York Daily News.

“I’m a person who’s thought about going to law school when I finish playing, and what’s a better time than now to be able to put in 3-4 hours a day of studying for a test that allows me to get into law school. That’s what I’m doing right now.”

The NBA suspended the season two weeks ago after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for the coronavirus.

Nets superstar small forward Kevin Durant tested positive as well. Four players on the Nets tested positive. Three players were asymptomatic and one was experiencing symptoms.

Temple is in his first season with the Nets. He was recruited in free agency by Brooklyn star point guard Kyrie Irving. The 33-year-old is averaging 10.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.6 assists on the season while shooting 37.8 percent from the field, 32.4 percent from beyond the arc and 76.7 percent from the free-throw line.

Prior to play being suspended, the Nets were in seventh place in the Eastern Conference standings with a record of 30-34.
