Will Conroy Houston Rockets Newest D-League Call-Up. Again.

via cdn1.sbnation.com

On February 27th, I wrote "While I've been critical of his game in the past, it seems he's really matured as a leader and a point guard this season, leading me to willingly endorse [Will] Conroy as the next D-League call-up." I should do this as a job.

Sources have confirmed that Will Conroy will sign a 10-day contract with the Houston Rockets, his second of the season, replacing Rio Grande Valley teammate Garrett Temple.  After two 10-day contracts, the Rockets have decided not to renew Temple for the season.

I've talked about Conroy at length as of late, so I'm not going to delve into this as much as I typically would.

Conroy, since coming back from his last Rockets call-up, has played five games and averaged 20.8 points, 13.6 assists and 9.6 rebounds while leading a Vipers team sans Temple, Antonio Anderson and Mike Harris to a winning record.  That's, as we in the business say, really freaking good.

Yesterday, he was passed over by his the Portland Trail Blazers in favor of Travis freakin' Diener.  This left me livid and questioning the validity of the D-League. Today, I'm not quite as upset.  In regards to the D-League, Daryl Morey gets it, the Trail Blazers don't. I'll learn to accept this.

Last, but not least, here's an interview I did with Conroy not long ago.
