Honestly, nobody probably realizes how hard I tried working a food reference into that headline. I was going to go with D-League Digestibles, but D-League Digest already has that on lockdown. Then I was going to go with (Sausage) links, but nobody eats sausage links on Thanksgiving so I thought that would've been kind of stupid. Then I was going to say something about turkey, but that didn't work either. So, sorry for the boring headline.
Now, onto things more important than a look inside my brain on a Wednesday afternoon, I bring you everything you need to know about the D-League that's happened this week.
- Joe Alexander, Stanley Robinson and DeShawn Sims all found new D-League homes this week. Check out where over at FanHouse.
- Philadelphia 76ers rookie Craig Brackins could be seeing an assignment to the Springfield Armor soon. Note that with the addition of Quin Snyder to the coaching staff, the Sixers have seemed to remember that the D-League exists! New York Knicks rookie Andy Rautins could also be joining Brackins with the Armor to work on his point guard skills (which is what Scottie Reynolds is also doing so things could get awkward).
- Speaking of assignments, first round picks Cole Aldrich and Ed Davis were assigned to the D-League this week. Aldrich can be read about here, Davis here. We've gotta be close to a record for most lottery picks in the D-League at one time, right? Three on assignment (with Patrick Patterson) plus guys like Antonio Daniels?
- SB Nation Arizona says Phoenix Suns assignee Gani Lawal has been inconsistent but impressive in his time with the Iowa Energy thus far. I noted he was a garbage-time all-star on Twitter. He's good, but I don't think "impressive" is a word I'd use to describe his stint in the D-League at this point.
- Jonny Flynn could end up spending some time with the Sioux Falls Skyforce - if he wants. I wouldn't mind it being this weekend so I could watch him live.
No games until Friday in the D-League, kids, so heed Barney's advice (first minute of this week's episode of How I Met Your Mother) tonight, enjoy your Thanksgiving tomorrow afternoon, don't break anything during football tomorrow night and always remember to beat the beat up.
