With the official wrap of the Las Vegas Summer League for 2010, it seems fitting to see how our former and current Maine Red Claws made out.
Mo Almond: Mo represented the one-time great Chicago Bulls. He played the part of scorer, as he only got 18 minutes a game, but scored 13 a game. He also shot an incredible 45 percent from beyond the arc. His thorn, however, as we saw during the season, was his free throw shooting. 63 percent is not too great. On that, his next best stat was turnovers, at two per game.
Trey Gilder: Round two of Summer League play saw Trey on the Atlanta Hawks. He did MUCH better than in Orlando. In 22 minutes a game, he scored almost nine points and nabbed over four boards a contest. He also shot fairly well, too, at a 48 percent clip.
JR Giddens: JR, representing the Mavericks of Dallas, received decent play time (24.8 minutes a game), but did not do a lot with it. He managed six points and four boards a game, while shooting a not-too-good 40 percent from the floor, and a nasty 50 percent from the line.
Will Blalock: Sixteen minutes a game was all Will got during his four games for the Warriors. His numbers played to it too: two-point-eight points and assists a game, and two boards per, as well. He did not shoot well at all.
Kurt Looby: Mr. Looooooby was one of two Red Claws on the D-League Select team, and he showed promise, until his play time decreased each of the five games. Game one, he mounted eight boards and a block in 22 minutes. In Game five, however, he only played four minutes, and got two rebounds. He only averaged a block a game, and shoot an anemic 22 percent from the floor.
Russell Robinson: The other Select Team member had the most note-worthy time in Vegas. In the first three of his four games, during his mild 21 minutes a contest, he averaged over 15 points and almost 2 steals a game. But the last game gave him four minutes, and no stats to speak of.
Mo Ager: In his time on the Summer League Hornets team, he did not shoot great, but he managed eleven points in 22 minutes a game. In his last two contests, he scored a total of 44 points, and shot over 50 percent.
Marcus Landry: Marcus saw time with the Knicks and scored seven points a game in 14 minutes a game. His shooting was nothing to write Mom about. He did show some potential with some overall numbers: three boards, a few assists, and a steal a game.
Billy Walker: Billy, the most successful former Claw, played for his NBA team, the Knicks. He started all five games, scoring double figures in four of them. He averaged 12 points in 26 minutes a game, and shot BADLY. But he made noise in each statistical category, which is to his credit. ( he even averaged four fouls a game).
Lester Hudson: Lester actually played very well in his time with the Wizards. He averaged three rebounds, three assists, and eleven points a game in 22 minutes per game. Also, he shot almost 50 percent from the floor and the three-point line, and 80 percent from the line. Very good numbers all around.
A noteworthy exception to this list is Abdulai Jalloh. The man showed to his games with the Wizards, but since his name is not Wall, he saw no play time at all. Congrats to him on just getting invited.
Hopefully, we’ll see some of these guys back next season. But overall, it seems they have done well. Most guys made the most of their time. Way to represent Maine, boys!
