NBA D-League To Hold Fourth Annual Elite Mini Camp in Chicago

Mike Ehrmann

Though the NBA D-League season has come to an end, up to forty of the league's top players will continue to be showcased in front of select big league executives during the fourth annual "Elite Mini-Camp" this weekend.

Though the NBA D-League season recently came to an end, that doesn't mean there aren't other ways for the league's aspiring NBA athletes to strut their stuff in front of big league executives.

With the hope of helping its slew of young guns reach the next level, the D-League will host its fourth annual "Elite Mini-Camp" in Chicago this coming weekend.

Such a camp not only features approximately forty of the NBADL's top prospects, but also provides them with yet another stage to shine on. An array of NBA executives are expected to be on hand as the players go through a bevy of scrimmages and workouts, guided by minor league staffers.

The D-League hosts the camp prior to the NBA Draft in the hopes that NBA teams realize certain existing voids can perhaps be filled by past minor leaguers, rather than rolling the dice on a potential second round hidden gem rookie.

In past seasons, some of the league's top players, including past All-Stars have participated in the camp. So far, Springfield Armor swingman Edwin Ubiles has been confirmed for the two-day mini showcase. A source also told RidiculousUpside.com that Tulsa 66ers' guard Tony Taylor will also take part in it as well. Both players are undeniably worthy talents, as Ubiles was the 2011-12 NBADL "Rookie of the Year," and Taylor most recently earned himself a spot on the "All NBA D-League All Rookie" Third Team.

More on this as more participants are released.
