You Remember Eric Devendorf? Guess Where He’s Headed? Guess. You’ll Never Guess. Okay, It’s the D-League. You Guessed. This Game Is Lame.

Eric Devendorf still has a basketball dream.

But he needs a basketball team.

Nearly nine months after playing his final college game for Syracuse University, the Bay City basketball phenom is still in search of his next team and his next chance.

“You’ve got to be positive about your situation because maybe you were put in that situation for a reason,” he said. “I’m staying positive. I know it’s going to happen.”

Now, for the first time since his decision to forego his senior season and pursue a professional career, it appears that Devendorf has caught a break. While nothing has been finalized, he said he hopes to sign with the Reno Bighorns of the NBA Development League as early as Monday.

It’s too bad that kids get bad advice. Like going to Syracuse. And then leaving Syracuse for the NBA without being Carmelo Anthony (much love, Donte Greene). But Devendorf has enough physical tools to be kind of an interesting pickup. Maybe he and Kevin Owens can get on the same team and bunk.
