2 High School Players on Same NBA Team?

So I was watching Cavs/Heat on NBATV on realizsed Samardo Samuels and Tristan Thompson both played on the same high school team(St. Benedicts) and now are both on Cleveland.

Just wondering how rare this is as I can't think of any other occassions of this.

How many high school

How many high school teammates are even in the NBA?

Luol Deng/Charlie Villanueva

Tayshaun Prince/Tyson Chandler

Any others?

Also, shouldn't it be noted that Tristan was only there for a year and a half?

If Mayo gets traded to New

If Mayo gets traded to New York, then Bill Walker and him would also fall into this catogory. They ran Cincinnati even as 7th graders.

I'm fairly certain high school

I'm fairly certain high school players cannot simultaneously play in the NBA as well. Hence having 2 HS players on the same nba team is an impossibility.

I apoloize for being a D-Bag.

I believe Darren Collison and Jeff Pendegraph of the pacers played high school ball together. Could be wrong though

BJ Upton, David Wright, Ryan Zimmerman, and Mark Reynolds all played on the same AAU baseball team in high school.

That team had to have been legendary.

Well if were just talking about played while they were in high school Rose and Eric Gordon played together, but Im sure if you open up those doors then there will be a ton of NBA players who played on the same team
