Why would they bring him back?

Even if they did like him, don't make sense to me to bring him back to this team.

Prospect Watch 2012-13: Week Two

The NBA D-League bills itself as the fastest way to the NBA. After the first weekend of play, these are the 30 guys who look like they'll get there first.



1 Posted Image
Chris
Douglas-Roberts
Forward | 6-7, 210 | Affiliate Player Before the excitement starts flying around, the former NBA swingman did have 12 turnovers in two games. But he also had 60 points in 82 minutes -- following up a 49-point affair in his final preseason game -- on 52.8-percent shooting (including a 6-for-9 mark from distance), and even took 18 foul shots between the two games. Normally, scoring's not the ticket to get a player out of the NBA D-League. But, like an ever-growing number of players in the top tier of NBA D-League Prospects, CDR's an NBA player just waiting for his number to be called again. And right now, it's looking like he's next in line.
Last Week: No. 2 2 Posted Image
Chris
Wright
Forward | 6-8, 225 | Returning Wright didn't get much of a chance to play during Toronto's training camp. He clearly had a lot bottled up. Over the Red Claws' two weekend games, the former Golden State Warrior (24 games in 2011-12) came out charging, averaging 21 points, 10.5 rebounds and two blocks over the pair. A bit of a 'tweener,' Wright's taken significant strides toward distancing himself from that label, both in terms of his athleticism (he stands 6-foot-8, but has a vertical to compensate) and his stroke (he went 3-for-4 from 3-point range and shot better than 55 percent for the weekend).
Last Week: No. 4 3 Posted Image
Andrew
Goudelock
Guard | 6-3, 200 | Drafted The Mini-Mamba -- and former deep-distance assassin at Charleston -- wasn't clicking from outside from the get-go on Saturday, but he found his stroke over the course of the game. His five turnovers were a bit worrisome, but as Goudelock continues to evolve as a combo guard instead of a straight 2-guard, he'll have a lot of support in Sioux Falls -- from both his system and his new teammate, longtime NBA point guard Troy Hudson.
Last Week: No. 3

You'd think getting a guy like CDR (who can be had for peanuts) would be a big priority. The bench is a disaster and needs every bit of scoring help it can get. Even Glock would be a breathe of fresh air. Both these guys can shoot, and they are capable of doing it in a variety of ways.

Meeks is a completely one-dimensional player, and has been disaster. A streak spot up shooter. He has no handles and even wide open looks don't always fall for him. He might work with the starters...but his perimeter defense is pretty bad.

Nice job cutting a player that had already proven he could log 20-25 contributing minutes a night.

CDR is actually a better player than Ebanks, and better than any other rookie or sophomore we have.

Oh well.

I usually don't allow D-League numbers impress me too much, but CDR is putting up solid numbers. Whether he would be even close to that productive in the NBA is yet to be seen, but he could surely do better than some of the guys on our bench. CDR can create a shot, other guys can't.

We should make a move on CDR. I liked him when he was with us during training camp and pre season. Him being 6'7 we can stick him at SG and SF. He's a scorcer in case MWP and Gasol are not providing us with points he can damn sure get us some.

Really?




Keep in mind against easily two of the very best defensive teams in the league at the time (though Miami still is, not sure about Chicago right now).

Please, if you're not sure what you're posting, think a little more no offense.

When I said I wasn't sure if he could come anywhere close to his D-League performances, I meant on a game-to-game basis, not a career-type night. So before you go insulting me or anybody else on these forums, think a little more, no offense.

My apologies. How would I have known? By your statement, it sure sounded like you didn't know any better. You didn't clarify, but now you have, so again, my apologies.

It's all good. But thanks for those videos. I know he can be a lethal scorer, but he looks deadly in those videos.

Should have never been waived.

CDR, that is.

He's got skills no doubt. Multitude of ways to score buckets & create his shot. Our bench could certainly use that.

He's put up numbers like these in the NBA.

Sandiata gaines was the best d-league player a couple years ago, so who cares about d-league. CDR had two chances this offseason, he didn't prove he was good enough to make a team and keep his spot. Nuff sed.
