Vrenz Bleijenbergh boarded a flight to the United States this morning. The 21-year-old and 2m11 Belgian Lion will compete in the NBA Summer League from July 7 to 17 with Las Vegas and the Phoenix Suns. “I will try to complete my challenge to enter the NBA in the coming weeks,” said the Belgian top talent.
Vrenz Bleijenbergh spent several months at Real Betis at the Spanish ACB last season and a month at the Windy City Bulls (Chicago Bulls coaching team) and the NBA G-League. “For the past few weeks I have been training with physical trainer Goen Abreuits in Antwerp and also received personal training from Belgian basketball legend Willie Steveniers. I’m got more muscle and I’m ready for this important American trip, “said the former Telenet Giants Antwerp.
“Three training days at Phoenix Suns are scheduled for July 3-6. We will be traveling with the team to Las Vegas for the traditional NBA Summer League. The program is already known. We face the Kings and then, if we qualify for sure, like the quarterfinals.

Vrenz Bleijenbergh, who was not drafted last year, hopes to earn a place in the world’s most prestigious tournament through the NBA Summer League. “Acting well is news, and I hope you will be picked up later. A little luck is also a part of it. However, I have nothing to lose and try to use speed. I will be back in Belgium on July 19th and I will wait and see if the options are actually discussed in the NBA. If not I will sign with the European team. Contacts already exist, but I’m put them on hold “for a while,” Vrenz Bleijenbergh said.
