Want To Know What's New In The NBA D-League? Okay, Read This!

New, 6 comments

I actually have a lot of things in the works as far as unfinished projects for Ridiculous Upside are concerned. Unfortunately, they are still all unfinished on this beautiful Monday morning so all 13 of our loyal readers will instead be subjected to links to a few mostly-relevant posts related to the NBA Development League.

First and foremost, however, I ask that you read my Chris Taft comeback story from late last week. I can't say it's going to be an easy road back to the NBA, but one has to be impressed that he's even attempting a return to basketball after the injuries he's already had to overcome.

The Canton NBA D-League team hasn't named its team yet, but they're apparently close to naming their coach. General Manager Wes Wilcox has apparently tabbed NAIA coach Jeff Young as one of two finalists for the job. The other finalist is completely unknown, at least as far as my sources are concerned.

Forgot to mention this awhile ago, but the Springfield Armor hired Chris Carrawell -- a former standout for the Duke Blue Devils -- as the team's assistant coach. Be on the lookout for an interview with head coach Bob MacKinnon sometime in the near future.

Anything else exciting out there?
