Japeth Aguilar Gaining Consideration From Multiple NBA D-League Teams

With many D-League alum fight for spots in NBA training camp, Filipino forward Japeth Aguilar is eyeing the D-League to jumpstart his own big hoops dreams.

As former D-League players attempt to fight their way onto NBA teams during training camp, other aspiring prospects with big dreams are vying for Development League opportunities.

Filipino forward Japeth Aguilar is gaining some of his own momentum as an array of D-League teams consider him for a roster spot, according to reports.

After finishing his college ball at Western Kentucky, Aguilar returned to play overseas. The forward played in the PBA as recently as last season, averaging 6.6 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks in just 15.4 minutes per game through 52 contests.

The Philippines native is a versatile player, who although he can shoot the ball well, has strong skills on the other side of the court as well. He's a solid rebounder and shot blocker too.

And as Aguilar chases that NBA dream, many teams have taken notice. Though he reportedly worked out with both the Spurs and Hornets just last month, the D-League is looking like a more likely option for the forward. In addition to being amongst the standouts of a recent open tryout with the Santa Cruz Warriors, HoopsHype also reports Aguilar worked out for the Bakersfield Jam as well.

Kortovich Finding a Spot to Land in D-League?

Last month, RidiculousUpside.com spoke with Brian Kortovich, a journeyman who is looking for D-League opportunities after being a member of past NBA preseason squads (the Knicks and Nets, respectively) in 2010 and 2011. Still grinding away, the sharpshooting guard participated in the Sioux Falls Skyforce's Philadelphia tryout this past weekend.
