NBA Champion Zeke Nnaji returns to Hopkins High School


NBA champion and Denver Nuggets forward Zeke Nnaji is home this week helping out at the annual Hopkins Alumni Camp for kids.

Nnaji played in 53 regular season games, and he averaged 5.2 points and 2.6 rebounds per game in 13.7 minutes of playing time.

The Nuggets selected Nnaji in the first round of the 2020 NBA Draft.
