The NBA D-League draft will take place Friday night, with the Tulsa 66ers, the Oklahoma City Thunder's affiliate, owning the first pick after acquiring the pick and Ben Uzoh in a three-team deal on Thursday night.
There are quite a few interesting names in the D-League draft pool, from veterans trying to get back into the league to relatives of notable NBA players. Let's take a look at some of the possible draftees.
Ricky Davis: Yes, Davis is still trying to get back into the NBA. The 12-year veteran last played in the league in 2009-10 with the Los Angeles Clippers, although he did work out for the Knicks in September. Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski CLEARLY thinks Davis would be a fine pick:
Who wouldn't want Ricky Davis as part of their franchise's developmental program for young players? This is an easy pick. Do it.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) November 1, 2013
Quincy Douby: Douby never did much in the NBA, but he certainly made a name for himself in China. Earlier this year, Douby set a CBA record by scoring 75 points in a game. He averaged 31.6 points for the year in China.
DeAndre Liggins: Liggins played sparingly with the Orlando Magic and Oklahoma City Thunder the last two seasons before the Thunder waived him in September following an arrest stemming from a domestic violence dispute.
Salim Stoudamire: Stoudamire was a star sharpshooter at Arizona and last played in the NBA with the Atlanta Hawks in 2008.
Harouna Mutombo: The cousin of NBA great Dikembe Mutombo.
