As always, this is my least favorite thread to start every season.

Trevon Duval was drafted fifth in the draft today by Iowa so one would assume that he plays there this season.

It usually takes a few days to make it official, but Marques Bolden is expected to be one of four players that Cleveland places in Canton.

I was pretty disappointed not to see Bolden at least get a two way deal after seeing him still on the roster with less than 15 guys an only one committed two way deal.

Speaking of two way deals, Id expect to see Amile on this thread a lot with the Lakeland Magic as hes still on a two way deal with Orlando.

Yep, Amile probably has one more season before we can finally say goodbye to him on this thread.

I would expect some Harry Giles when he gets back from injury.

On any other team, I would expect a ton of Gary Trent, but the Blazers do not have their own team so use the league sparingly.

Marques joining Canton for camp is confirmed:

The other big news is that Andre Dawkins is going to be in camp for the Santa Cruz Warriors after they traded for his rights in February. His last stint ended in injury so it is good to see that he is healthy again, but there is a lot of camp competition so it may be tough for him to make the final roster.

Andre has been waived.

There are only a handful of preseason games, but Trevon did play 11 minutes in one and scored 8 points. The Timberwolves have three players assigned to the team right now and also had both two-way contract players there so he had to settle for bench duty.

I also saw that Amile just signed a two-year deal with the Magic (upgraded from the two-way contract he was on previously). Great news for him! I imagine he'll still be mostly a G-league player, but maybe he'll get an appearance or two on the main squad.

I would be surprised if Marques doesn't play in the NBA this year. Although pre-season doesn't count for much and G-League is not much more, he has acquitted himself well so far. Although the game has moved away from Marques' style of play, tall guys that can block shots, take up space in the lane, grab boards, and score close to the rim occasionally, still have value.

Or from big time college basketball too. Maybe a consideration that escaped Trevon, Gary, etc.....

For years we have been used to looking at this thread and seeing Quin Cook, Amile Jefferson, Gary Trent, and other Dukies putting up big G-League numbers on their way to earning NBA contracts. I am bummed to see Marques and Trevon struggling to even get 10 or so minutes per game. Keep working at it, guys!

Particularly sobering for Duval, who is in his second year in the G-League. Matt Jones was much more productive in his two years in the G-League and he didn't get a sniff from the NBA.

Hamstring injury, day-to-day. Still on the big clubs roster. Interesting to see if he gets any playing time since Portland added Carmelo. He was only averaging about 8 minutes a game, mostly garbage time.

I agree. Marques has a small window but he has to be much more productive. Only the top players have a chance of moving up. Duval has a lot of work to do- his jump shooting was and is a huge problem. He may have peaked in high school- it happens for many.

He did manage to secure a three year guaranteed contract after being drafted so he doesn't have to worry too much about his future yet, but he definitely wants to be showing something by the end of this season. He probably would have benefitted from being able to play more in the G League, but his team does not really believe in it so it has not been an option.

If Duval's vision issues will never be resolved, it seems unlikely that he will ever be a top level pro, but could still be productive at a lesser level. That he has been so productive even with it is pretty remarkable. I wonder if that would have been possible to sneak past NBA medicals if he had been able to go straight out of high school.

Nah,, he did better than high school in 3-4 games as a Freshman at Duke, a couple of games were great! so that was a better peak than high school
.He large great ball palming hands, and a long, quick stride. I loved watching him when he was in sync. When he would drive the lane and make a great finish, or a great dish off, he would face the Duke bench and grin at them as he bounced sideways up the court.
He's still has time, only 21 years old or so. It depends on his work ethic I guess, but I've never heard anything about that, either good or bad.
