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 seasons roster. There is also the occasional free agent signing. Musselman: But the new players have to go through the D-League office, and there is a preference order that starts out in reverse order from draft. So there you have it. Also, in the draft guide, Musselman said D-League teams will be looking for immediate help in the first three rounds, and players to develop in rounds 4-8. Finally, here again are the top prospects, forwarded to me by a D-League official: 1. Tinsley. 2. Alando Tucker (SF, Wisconsin). 3. Chris Daniels (SG, Georgia). 4. Durrell Summers (SG, Michigan State). 5. Chris Wright (SF, Dayton). 6. Curtis Sumpter (SF, Villanova). 7. Jamal Sampson (FC, California). 8. Jarrid Famous (C, South Florida). 9. Tyren Johnson (PF, La.-Lafayette). 10. Gary Johnson (SF, Texas). 11. Gabe Pruitt (G, USC). 12. Chris Taft (C, Pittsburgh).
