NEW YORK — Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant and New York Knicks forward Michael Beasley are childhood friends from Prince George’s County, Maryland. They played on the same AAU team and the same high school team. They both chose a Big 12 college, they both were named the conference players of the year as freshmen and they both were No. 2 picks in back-to-back NBA drafts following their lone collegiate seasons.

Since then, their careers have taken different paths. Durant has become an NBA champion and league MVP. Beasley has played for six NBA teams with two stints in China.

Stephan Bennett will soon enter the real world. He has been out of college for two years, and he has since journeyed around professional basketball’s international outposts with little success. While he played in French gymnasiums hidden in barns, most of his friends grew into adults, investing in 401(k)s and having children. Bennett believes it may be time to join them. Just not until he chases his dream this final time.

On a humid Saturday afternoon, Bennett stretches his 6-foot-10 body on a curb, waiting for a confused Uber driver trying to navigate the one-way streets and gravel road to the newly constructed St. Elizabeths East Entertainment and Sports Arena. Bennett has just competed for hours at the Capital City Go-Go’s local tryout for the slim chance to earn an invitation to the upcoming training camp of the Washington Wizards’ G League team.

“This was like the deadline for me, though,” Bennett, 25, said. “I decided this was the last straw for me. If I make it, then I’ll keep going. If I don’t, then I’m done.”
