Double take: Teen twins 1st to sign in pro hoops prep league

This is hardly child’s play: Teenage twins from Florida are skipping college basketball to become the first to sign with a new hoops league created for standout high school players. Brothers Matt and Ryan Bewley signed Friday with Overtime Elite, which markets itself to elite players between 16 and 18 years old with promises of an academic education and a six-figure salary. The Bewleys – Matt, 6-foot-9; Ryan, 6-8 – chose this potential route to the NBA over college, the developmental G League or overseas leagues.
