Video: LeBron James Producing Adam Sandler Film Starring This NBA Player

LeBron James has dropped the trailer for a new NBA-themed movie coming to Netflix this spring that he's producing with Adam Sandler (who also stars in it). Called "Hustle", the film is about a washed basketball scout (Sandler) who discovers a young phenom — played by Utah Jazz forward Juancho Hernangomez. Watch the trailer here:

Hernangomez' career has hit a roadblock this season, as he's averaging 1.2 points, and is with his third team already this season. Good thing he's got a new day job. 

As you can see in the trailer, there are plenty of other bigger-name NBA players who make at least a cameo in the film. Names like Anthony Edwards (Hernangomez's teammate in Minnesota last season), Kyle Lowry, Tyrese Maxey, Tobias Harris, and Boban Marjanovic. 

The legendary comic Sandler is a huge hoops fan; in November he showed up courtside at a Timberwolves game, and he and Ant appeared pretty tight:

"We need an @Antjr1_ appearance in your next movie, @AdamSandler", wrote the T-Wolves official Twitter account. Looks like they've got their wish. 

Here's hoping that the 26-year-old Hernangomez can turn this into an acting career, in case this whole NBA thing doesn't work out.
