After not getting much chance to develop in Bakersfield, Ian Clark will have the chance to develop thanks to the Utah Jazz and the Idaho Stampede.
As the NBA season heads into crunch time, we have started to see solid activity in the D-League. NBA teams who are either battling the injury bug or potentially looking for something new are looking to the D-League to help them do so.
For today’s report, I’ve highlighted a few important news items in the world of the D-League and included a list of all the D-League Call Ups and Assignments so far this season. Enjoy!
Thanks for all your support on last week’s post. Here’s another look at the D-League as we head into the last couple weeks of December:
Antoine Walker to Have a Sort of Homecoming
I’ll get into this in better detail below, but one of the big games this week features Antoine Walker’s return to the East Coast as the Idaho Stampede play the Maine Red Claws. The Red Claws are affiliated by the Boston Celtics, which will give Walker his best opportunity so far to impress. Unfortunately, Walker has had to rattle of some game rust so far in his comeback effort.
It’s my first post on Saving the Skyhook and I’m thrilled. I’m very excited to see what we can build here, and I’m looking forward to your feedback.
Once a week, we’ll take a look at the news and notes from the NBA D-League and keep you up to speed with the relevant story lines. One cool thing about the D-League is that every game is available in streaming format through NBA.com/dleague. We’ll also point to 2-3 games a week that we think you’ll enjoy.
