Former Buffs McKinley Wright IV and George King showed each other the ultimate sign of respect on Thursday when they faced each other in an NBA G-League game.

The two played together in Boulder for one season back in 2017-18 with King being a seasoned vet responsible for leading Wright and that talented 2017 class. But with both of them now chasing their NBA dreams, they crossed paths again when King’s Agua Caliente Clippers hosted Wright’s Iowa Wolves.

Wright, as he has done all season for the Wolves, was a scoring machine and finished the contest with 19 points and six assists. However, King and his 14-point, 10-rebound double-double helped the Clippers come away victorious, 116-108.

After the game, Wright and King met up and exchanged jerseys.

It’s going to be even sweeter, though, when they do this following an NBA game.

Both have played sparingly in the NBA this season with Wright in Minnesota and King, who was recently released by the Dallas Mavericks following a 10-day contract, returning to the Clippers organization.
