The Sevens were busy in the D-League Draft as they selected eight players when the dust was all settled. Along with those drafted, they also invited four open tryout players to camp, they have three affiliate players, and two returning players to fill out their camp roster.
|Brandon Goode||C||Norfolk State||Draft|
Melvin Johnson III
|Jamal Jones||SG||Texas A&M||Draft|
|LaQuentin Miles||SG||Central Arkansas||Draft|
|Devon Moore||SG||James Madison||Draft|
|Ronald Roberts||PF||Saint Joseph's||Affiliate|
|Victor Rudd||PF||South Florida||Tryout|
|SG||Cal State Fullerton||Draft|
There has been a bit of a theme with teams selecting some savvy veterans for their camp rosters, but the Sevens elected to stick with the youth movement as all players invited fall in the range from 21-25 years old.
Tiny Gallon -- Gallon impressed last season with the Sevens. He played in 34 games logging 27.6 minutes per contest and averaging 18.9 points and 9.1 rebounds on 56.2 percent shooting from the field. Gallon is still only 23 years old and will certainly be one of the teams' leading scorers this season.
Jamal Jones -- Jones is NBA draft eligible in 2015 so, like P.J. Hairston last year, he's in it for the long haul and cannot be called-up to the NBA this year. Jones bounced around in college playing at three separate schools before leaving Texas A&M last year -- he averaged 13.4 points and 4.1 rebounds in 34 games with the Aggies. Jones was taken with the Sevens' second round pick so you can expect to see steady minutes for him as he develops his game for the next level.
Ronald Roberts -- Roberts played with both Miami Heat and the Philadelphia 76ers for the NBA's summer league, and he played quite well averaging 10.2 points and 7.4 rebounds (during his time with Philly). He turned that strong play into a multi-year deal with the Sixers before being allocated to the Sevens as an affiliate player. Gallon and Roberts down low should be a force for other teams to contend with. The D-League is a guard heavy league, so if the Sevens can get quality scoring and rebounding from Roberts, then he will certainly be a valuable asset.
