Pre-Draft Financing

Case Study


Sure Sports received a request to provide a top NCAA basketball player who had declared for the NBA draft with a pre-draft loan to provide funds to purchase a home.


The player was a non-U.S. citizen, 19-year-old college freshman with little-to-no credit history, no assets, and zero income.


Sure Sports provided the player a $1.5M pre-draft loan based on his projected first contract (draft position).


As with all Sure Sports Pre-Draft Loans, there were no payments due until the player received paychecks following the NBA Draft.


A college freshman with no credit, income, or assets, was able to secure a $1.5M loan, closing and funding in less than 2 weeks.
