Shaquille O’Neal’s Son, Shareef, Signs Six-Figure Deal With G League Ignite


At 22-years-old, Shareef O’Neal, is still well behind the success of his father, Shaquille O’Neal. When Shaq was 20-years-old, he was the number one pick in the 1992 draft, and just three years later, he led the NBA in scoring and finished second in MVP voting.

So when Shaq was 22 and 23, he was dominating the NBA and leading the entire league in scoring. Sadly, his son hasn’t had the same success.

But that doesn’t mean he’s giving up on his NBA dreams. The 6-foot-10, 215-pound basketball player just signed a six-figure contract with the G League. He will play for NBA G League Ignite, which is a developmental league based in Nevada.
