Nate Jawai Assigned To Idaho Stampede

No link yet, but got this press release from the D-League.   I can't wait to see Jawai in action.

NEW YORK, Feb. 26, 2009 - The Toronto Raptors today assigned forward-center Nate Jawai to the Idaho Stampede, the Raptors' NBA Development League affiliate. Jawai is the 26th assignment of the season.

Jawai, 22, has appeared in five games for the Raptors, totaling two points and two rebounds in 18 minutes. He was cleared Dec. 17, to begin physical activity after being sidelined since training camp for precautionary reasons as a result of an abnormality detected during normal procedural preseason cardiac screening.

Toronto acquired the draft rights to Jawai from the Indiana Pacers on July 9. He was the 41st overall selection in the 2008 NBA Draft. He is the first indigenous player from Australia to be drafted by an NBA team.

Jawai is the third Raptor to be assigned to the D-League. P.J. Tucker was assigned twice to Colorado during the 2006-07 season and Pape Sow was assigned to the Arkansas Rimrockers in the 2005-06 campaign.

Related note: I miss Pape Sow.
