Fun times.

Lots of people trying to convince themselves he was going to be good as well.

Kyle Wiltjer

He's the one that jumped out to me as well

Top 20 overall recruit, went to Kentucky, transferred to Zaga, never heard from again

He played his first two years at Houston and was terrific as a three point specialist.

why is so hard to project players from college to the NBA
it's amazing the number of misses in the first round of the draft
I guess the games are so varied/different from college to NBA whereas football is football

Can someone explain this draft?

I thought the G-League was sort of like the NFL UDFA process, where undrafted rookies like Aubrey Dawkins and KBW are free to choose a team recruiting them that they think they have a roster shot with, then try out in Summer League to garner a contract with either the Pels NBA roster or with the Pels already-established minor-league/G-League roster, like being added to the NFLs developmental practice squad.

Apparently, I'm way off.

Some clarification on this. Erie BayHawks would have guys like Burke and D Jones Jr IF they are sent back down to the G League. However, they both currently play for NBA teams and aren’t likely to be sent down.

He went on to be an All-American at Gonzaga and was preseason National Player of the Year going into his senior season. He was definitely heard from again after transferring from UK. He was great for the Zags, but his game never translated to the NBA. Too soft.

The Erie Bayhawks of last year are moving to Atlanta to become the College Park Skyhawks. The Pels are starting a brand new expansion team this season but Birmingham wasn't ready so they made an agreement with the Erie Bayhawks business team to play there until Birmingham is ready.

Since this is a new expansion team they had no players. The GLeague held an expansion draft where every team had to make 2 players available to possibly be drafted by the Bayhawks. The result of that expansion draft is what this thread is about.

It sort of is:

1) The Pels NBA team only has rights to players on it's roster that it sends down, like the rookies, or players on 2 way contracts, like Zylan Cheetham. If another team were willing to offer a player like Aubrey Dawkins or KBW a 2 way contract or an actual roster contract, there isn't anything the Pels could do about it. You would hope you've built up enough good will to be allowed to match if you had the roster spots or 2 way contracts available, but the rights to Erie Bayhawk players aren't really owned by the Pels.

2) There is also an annual GLeague draft after all of the NBA camp cuts. It's basically all of the cuts and undrafted players that didn't make an NBA team. These players belong to the GLeague team that drafted them, not their NBA parent, so any NBA team could sign them.

Can't blame me for liking Burke. He blocked Peyton Siva at the rim. How can I not fall in love with that and thinking he may replace Chris Paul?

The rights to these players? Does that mean the Pels have the rights to these players for two years?
