Dakota Wizards Hold Dance Team Tryouts, Local News Gets Awkward Video as Proof

+

I love local news stories. The Dakota Wizards held tryouts for their dance team and the local news showed up to get some clips of girls in skin-tight outfits awkwardly learning dance steps. I hope you enjoy the video as a welcome break from the depressing world of NBA team waivers.

Client Keith Brumbaugh to sign with the Denver Nuggets.

Client Keith Brumbaugh to sign with the Denver Nuggets. According to Keith Kreiter of Edge Sports' Twitter, Keith Brumbaugh will be signing with the Nuggets for.....the next year? Or just for training camp? Or as an non-guaranteed contract? No idea, but I hope it's the first option, because Keith is very talented and deserving.

Last night, The Monitor broke the news that Clay Moser has been informed by the Houston Rockets that they have decided not to retain him as the Rio Grande Valley Vipers head coach.  Not exactly...

Chucky Brown Hired as D-Fenders Coach

+

For some reason this slipped by us when it happened, but Chucky Brown has been hired as the Head Coach of the Los Angeles D-Fenders. Chucky is a good choice, as he has prior head coaching experience in the WBA and some experience as an assistant last year with the D-Fenders.

Lance Allred to Naples?

1

Continuing the rash of former D-League successes heading overseas, Lance Allred has signed with an Italian club for next season. This begs the question, will his publisher release "Longshot" in Italian paperback?

Dave Leitao in as Head Coach of RGV Vipers?

4

We'd heard rumblings that former UVA head coach Dave Leitao was interviewing for the RGV job, and Yahoo sports just confirmed it. Leitao coached the UVA Men's team for four years before resigning at the end of this past season. The Vipers job is one of the more interesting available, as they are now the direct affiliate of the Houston Rockets. More on this later.

Somewhere Rick Kamla is shouting "NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!"

Sun Yue got cut by the Lakers. The world's greatest Chinese 6'9", left-handed, point guard is apparently a free agent. NBA beware....this guy is a killer. And he's 6'9"! He...shhees....He's just needess to play American Basketball.

Austin Ainge to Coach the Maine Red Claws! Look out women of Maine, there's heart-throb comin atcha!

Allen Iverson to the D-League? Hello Pipe Dreams.

+

This article is apparently extolling the virtues of Allen Iverson playing in the D-League. Do I think this will ever happen, especially with a player like Iverson? No. Would it be awesome? Sort of. It'd be a great ratings boost for the league, but Iverson's got no developing left to do, and he would be taking some unknown SEC player's roster spot.

The Maine Red Claws are Holding Mascot Tryouts

+

So it's finally happened! The Maine Red Claws are gearing up for the D-league season and first item on the list: Hire a Mascot. I cannot wait to see some guy dressed as a giant lobster claw trying to dunk off a trampoline. If Bakersfield hasn't hired Swish back, I strongly suggest they take a look at his impressive resume.

D-League Update: Maine Red Claws Closing in on Head Coach

3

Austin Ainge, son of NBA great Danny Ainge, is mentioned as one of three possible candidates for the Red Claws, the other two going unnamed. My only question: Is he actually qualified to be a head coach? Or are local ties and nepotism outweighing experience and a winning resume? But maybe I'm being too harsh and cynical.

The Dakota Wiz Narrow Coaching Search to Five

Take a deep breath, we will return to Summer League coverage ASAP. But this is pretty big news for the D-League considering three of the finalists are well known D-League guys. Namely Deane Martin, Casey Owens, and Kevin Rice. The other two, Rory White and Bob Thornton, we know less about, but they have solid NBA experience. Best of luck to all the candidates, as we know all are good guys and excellent coaches.

American Kids Failing Basketball 101

This is an Interesting take on the AAU circuit, and while not exactly about the DLeague, it does tie in with some discussions we've had about player development. Wouldn't one cohesive system, with mandatory time spent in a minor league, developmental system benefit young players more than shady backdoor basketball?
