Rigby Burnett Jr. aka Rigby was selected by Hornets Venom GT with the 8th overall pick of the 2021 NBA 2K League draft. In his rookie year, he averaged 22.8 points and 5.4 assists despite sharing backcourt duties with veteran point guard Sherm. Rigby made headlines when he led Hornets Venom to a banner in THE TURN and ultimately winning tournament MVP, the first ever rookie to do so. Along with fellow rookie teammate Crown, Rigby was awarded one of five spots on the NBA 2K League All-Rookie team. He was also one of two rookies to play in the league’s historic and inaugural All-Star game. Most recently, Rigby and his pro-am team No Tolerance won the UPA 15K Fall Series, an in-person LAN event held in Dallas. Not by surprise, he was named tournament MVP for that as well.
