Under no circumstances will ADP's name ever be on an NBA roster unless its as a trainer. The dude has just ab 0 actual basketball skills. Maybe if WW3 broke out and everyone had to get drafted and go fight the germans again and he for some reason couldnt fight bc they couldnt find a uniform big enough for him and they decided to have the NBA for that season comprised of regular dudes, then maybe, maybe he could make the roster and years later they could make a movie ab it

He should go overseas. Money is better in Europe and he has little chance of making an NBA roster for a sustained period.
Made sense for Garrett Temple to play in the D-League because he knew he'd get a call-up. The D-League is for guys on the cusp of the NBA needing to stay stateside to be more "available" and guys who just can't stand living in another country.
You can't make a living in the D-League. You can get set up a nice nest egg for the rest of your life if you play 4-5 years in Europe making tax-free money, living on the team's dime (meaning you get to save your cash) and drawing a solidly six-figure income.
