A few quick revisions to my D-League draft guide, courtesy of our friend Eric Musselman, the coach of the Los Angeles D-Fenders. Musselmans team picks first in tonights draft. Barring a last-minute change of plans, the D-Fenders will take former NBA point guard Jamaal Tinsley.
Musselman is a writer himself, having maintained a popular blog a few years ago before getting back into coaching. So I dont mind having him edit my stuff. Im just wondering when hes going to let me design a play -- but I suppose thats a story for another day.
Anyway, the draft is tonight at 7 EST. Here is what I wrote in my preview, followed by the Musselmans corrections:
Me: Selecting a player doesnt always guarantee he will play in the D-League.
Musselman: They are under D-League contract, so if they want to play somewhere else, there needs to be a buyout.
Me: D-League rosters are made up of three types of players: Those drafted, those selected from open tryouts, and a few leftovers from the previous seas...
