Cade Cunningham of the Detroit Pistons has been rehabbing from a season ending surgery to repair a stress fracture in his lower leg while his trainer Ashton and his brother Cannen Cunningham have been using their time to bring the game of basketball to the metropolitan Detroit area.

The two teamed up with Ranked Management to bring a 3-on-3 tournament to Dearborn, Michigan. There will be food and music to help keep fans entertained during the event. It’s all taking place May 20th 2023 at the Hype Dearborn, 23302 W Warren st. Dearborn Heights, Michigan.

This could be the first of several different basketball related events they’ll be hosting in the near future. Register your team now, if you feel you got what it takes. The 3-on-3 contest will allow four players per team, entry to the tournament is 100 dollars per team. The winners of the tournament will have a 4,000 dollars grand prize, guaranteed to bring out the competitive spirit of the participants.

Spectators can attend the games for only ten dollars, making it affordable for the whole family. This will be a fun-filled event that welcomes all ages, so make sure you lock your spot in early. This will more than likely sell out, so securing your seats now will be in your best interest.

Recently Ashton took to Twitter to promote the event early Monday morning. Here’s what he had to say,

Detroit Pistons: Will Cade Cunningham make an appearance?

News of the special guest spread quickly with many locals residents thinking it could be Detroit Pistons’ Cade Cunningham in attendance. That would be a delightful surprise for those who came to participate in the event or just coming out to support. You’ll have to show up to find out, whoever the special guest might be I’m sure they won’t disappoint.

Both Cannen and Ashton have a background in basketball. Cannen was a four year player at Southern Methodist University under then Head Coach Larry Brown. Ashton played basketball in his youth with NBA veteran Avery Bradley, before becoming a NBA player development trainer.

Coming together as a community through the game of basketball is the goal. Hopefully we’ll be seeing more events like this throughout the summer for our youth basketball players. It’s definitely good to see Cannen and Ashton both doing their part, giving hoopers a chance at a 4,000 dollars.

It’s pretty obvious Cade Cunningham surrounds himself with the right people, but having these two in his inner circle confirms it.
