Three More Prospects Confirmed For NBA D-League Elite Mini-Camp

Mike Ehrmann

With the NBA D-League Elite Mini-Camp set to take place in Chicago this weekend, here's a look at some prospects prepared to participate.

With the NBA Draft Combine set to take place next week in Houston, the D-League is hoping to take advantage of the presence of an immense amount of big league executives expected to be in Chicago.

Thus, the minor league will host its annual Elite Mini-Camp in town this coming weekend, before the Draft Combine. The hope, for the NBADL, is that some of their top up and coming talents will catch an executive's eye and make a strong impression before the draft prospects even step foot on the hardwood later in the week.

Previously, RidiculousUpside.com mentioned that 66ers' guard Tony Taylor and Armor swingman Edwin Ubiles will be amongst the approximately forty D-League prospects set to take part in the two-day workout. Now, three more players can be confirmed as throwing themselves into the mix this weekend.

RidiculousUpside.com has learned that Jam swingman James Nunnally, Stampede guard Reggie Hamilton, and Energy big man Jarrid Famous will all also be in attendance.

Out of the three, there's no doubt Nunnally saw the most growth in his development this season. Steadily emerging throughout the year from sharpshooting role player, to clutch sixth man, and finally, key starter (in place of NBA call-up Jerel McNeal), the swingman was trusted by Bakersfield more and more as the season progressed. Named to the NBADL's "All-Rookie" Third Team, the Santa Barbara alum finished the year averaging 10.3 points on 43% from the field and 41% from deep through 49 contests.

Hamilton joined Idaho midseason following sufficient rehab from an injury. A fiery and explosive young gun, the 5'11" Hamilton can score in bunches and provide his team with that oh so coveted boost off the bench. His 9.3 point per game average was highlighted by a season-high 28 points on April 6th in an Idaho victory.

Whereas Nunnally and Hamilton both completed their rookie seasons in the minors, Famous recently logged his second year in the league. Perhaps the more versatile of the bunch, Famous takes pride in asserting himself down low and fighting for gritty rebounds. Though he's not the most imposing presence on the offensive end, the big man can still efficiently capitalize on easy looks under the basket.

Each of these prospects will undoubtedly look to capitalize on the opportunity at hand this weekend to impress the big league executives in attendance.
