Report: Former Orioles draft pick Pat Connaughton will participate in NBA’s Slam Dunk contest

There was a time when Orioles fans might’ve thought they would see Pat Connaughton of the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks suit up for the birds.

A fourth-round draft pick of the Orioles in 2014, the 6-foot-5 pitching prospect posted a 2.45 ERA in 14 2/3 innings for Class A Short Season Aberdeen in 2014. But after being drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers in 2015, Connaughton stuck in the NBA and has yet to return to baseball.

Still, O’s fans will get a chance to see the former flame-thrower on Feb. 15, as he’s reportedly set to participate in the NBA’s Slam Dunk contest as part of NBA All-Star 2020.

Well, the last few days have been ones for those interested in MLB draft picks playing in other sports- what sport will be next?
