Hustle: We discover the cast of NBA stars who star in the Netflix movie with Adam Sandler

Adam Sandler’s new collaboration with Netflix for Hustle, a basketball drama currently available on the streaming platform that features an impressive cast of well-known actors and NBA personalities. Directed by Jeremiah Zagar, “Hustle” sees Sandler in another dramatic role, the actor plays Stanley Sugarman a former player now talent scout who works for the 76ers. During a trip to while looking for players in Spain for the team’s draft he finds, by sheer luck, Bo Cruz (Juan Hernangómez) a Spanish talent to be scorned, who will become his life bet for Stanley.

Sandler with “Hustle” packs a heartfelt love letter to the sport he loves most, but the big hit was having a number of big names in the NBA in the film. Spencer Beighley, executive producer of Hustle, explained to For The Win because the film was able to get so many big names for this project.

You see a lot of great basketball players in this movie. It has never been easier to get cameos in any movie than in Hustle because when you say Adam Sandler’s name, people immediately cheer up. All of these players, not only have grown up with all of Adam’s films, but they know that he is a true basketball fan.

Note that many of the athletes in the film have connections with the Philadelphia 76ers. This is because, in the film, Sandler’s character works for this team. In addition, the director of the film (Jeremiah Zagar) and the screenwriter (Will Fetters) are both from Philadelphia.

“There are so many hidden cameos that sometimes go so ‘into basketball’ that only devoted fans will notice,” Beighley added. “I think it’s those cameos that allow this story to feel like a love letter to the game.”

For those wishing to deepen this substantial list of cameos and roles played below you will find a list of all the NBA players and personalities who appear in the film.
