Already something of a pickup basketball legendAdam Sandler will soon take his hoop dreams to Netflix with a lead role in Jeremiah Zagar's Hustle.

Hustle finds Sandler in the role of a basketball scout who discovers a generational talent abroad, and takes it upon himself to bring the player overseas to face top competition in the NBA.

A new trailer for the film, which you can view below, finds the Sandman doling out some classic "how bad do you want it?" athletic motivation. Keep your eyes peeled for cameos from a host of NBA talent past and present, including Anthony Edwards, Kyle Lowry, Matisse Thybulle, Khris Middleton and Kenny "The Jet" Smith.

Hustle was produced by Sandler and NBA icon, Space Jam: A New Legacy star and noted Canadian hi-fi enthusiast LeBron James. The film was written by Taylor Materne and Will Fetters, and arrives on Netflix June 10.
