Eason dropped 37 points, 13 rebounds, two blocked shots and one steal in the 87-85 win on Saturday. He scored in a variety of ways and threw down a number of highlight-worthy dunks and looked to be the top player on the court throughout the game.
The 21-year-old is the latest NBA player to participate in the annual pro-am, joining the likes of LeBron James, DeMar DeRozan, Trae Young and John Collins among others recently.
The showing from Eason follows a great run with the Rockets in the Las Vegas Summer League. He was named to the all-summer league first team after averaging 17.2 points, 10.4 rebounds, 1.8 steals, 1.6 assists and one block in five games.
He led all players in rebounding and double-doubles (4).
Eason also participated in the Crawsover pro-am in Seattle and expressed his desire to play again in the Drew League. The games will give him the opportunity to continue playing in a competitive format and prepare for his upcoming rookie campaign.
