NBA player and former Wisconsin star Sam Dekker will be honored in Sheboygan, Wis. this Friday with 'Sam Dekker Day.'

Sheboygan Lutheran High will also retire Dekker's jersey on Friday afternoon at 4 p.m. Dekker led the Crusaders to a state title in 2012.

Before he led the Badgers to consecutive Final Fours, Dekker was known for hitting one of the biggest shots in Wisconsin high school basketball history.

Conveniently, the shot came at the Kohl Center, where Dekker would later pair with Frank Kaminsky to create two of the best Badgers' squads of all-time.

The jersey retirement ceremony is open to the public. The school will also unveil a banner in the gymnasium at 6:30 p.m. Tickets for the unveiling are $30 for adults and $15 for kids under 18 years old.

Dekker was drafted in the first round by the Houston Rockets in 2015, and averaged 6.5 points and 18.4 minutes per game during the 2016-17 season. Dekker was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers this summer as part of the Chris Paul deal.
