With 2012 NBA training camp officially getting underway this week, an official tally of a remarkable 123 players with D-League experience will be taking part in camp.
At RU, we've profiled an array of these different prospects who have signed non-guaranteed deals with NBA squads, all hoping to fight their way on to the respective teams.
But of course, over the years the D-League has been filled with success stories of players who have made their mark by playing in the minors, only to break into the NBA soon after. Many have moved on to be amongst the league-leaders in various categories. Others have even emerged as key playoff contributors.
Even players more known now for their longevity in the NBA (rather than stints in the D-League), still obviously grace such a list. The notable veterans include the likes of Matt Barnes and Dahntay Jones.
This large group of alumni certainly has its own varied share of experience, breakthrough stories, and a number of unique individual paths to the NBA. Without further adieu, here's a look at the impressive list.
