We have an open roster spot now (sorry Carney) and unless we make a trade, I hope we go into the D-League to get some help. Although these guys are both PFs, I bet either could play the 3 for us....And yeah, I know this is against D-League opposition, but whatever
Sorry, Can't figure out how to block quote, but here are the details:
"Jeff Adrien, PF, Rio Grande Valley Vipers -- Adrien's performance Monday night wasn't replicated for the rest of the Showcase. A 6-foot-7 power forward who played earlier this season with the Iowa Energy, Adrien erupted for 30 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks in a two-point victory over the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.
In his next game, a blowout victory over the Erie BayHawks on Versus TV, Adrien scored 20 points and grabbed 16 rebounds while blocking four shots despite his shorter-than-average stature. As one scout mentioned, he's a man among boys in the D-League."
"Joe Alexander, PF, Texas Legends -- Alexander came into the Showcase needing to prove he was a better player than the one that flamed out in the NBA in just two seasons after being selected with the eighth overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft by the Milwaukee Bucks. In two games at the Showcase, with scouts and executives from many NBA teams in attendance, Alexander was able to put together two solid performances.
In his first game, against the New Mexico Thunderbirds, the 24-year-old scored 21 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and blocked six shots while playing 45 minutes. In Thursday's contest against the Iowa Energy, Alexander scored 18 points, grabbed 11 rebounds, dished eight assists and added two blocks in a 119-114 victory."
and I have no idea who this guy is, just passing it along because he would fill a team need:
"Othyus Jeffers, SG/SF, Iowa Energy -- Jeffers has been on the cusp of a call-up for the past two years and even finished last season with the Utah Jazz, yet he found himself in the D-League to begin this year yet again. If NBA scouts took stock in his performance over the past week, though, the physical wing might soon be headed back to the big leagues.
On Monday, the 6-foot-5 Jeffers scored 27 points and grabbed 17 rebounds in a hard-fought 95-93 victory over the Utah Flash. Though the Energy weren't able to win again Thursday, Jeffers' performance wasn't the problem as he had 25 points, six rebounds, five steals and three assists"
