NBA D-League Expansion Draft: Delaware 87ers Acquire Rights to Sixteen Players

Big County Reeves - Stephen Dunn

NBDL talk up in here, up in here.

Our favorite little brother, the Delaware 87ers, acquired the rights to sixteen players through the D-League Expansion Draft. All existing D-League teams were allowed to protect twelve players from their current roster, and the Fightin' Blue Hens Sevens could select no more than two players from any given team. So, my sincerest condolences if you had been salivating over the Fort Wayne Mad Ants roster page with a tube sock nearby.

Without further ado, your 87ers!

-Josh Akognon (Cal State Fullerton)

-Chris Cooper (Old Dominion)

-Jerome Dyson (UCONN)

-Kyle Fogg (Arizona)

-Jeremy Green (Stanford)

-Frank Hassell (Old Dominon)

-Darington Hobson (New Mexico)

-Leo Lyons (Missouri)

-Ramone Moore (Temple)

-Hamady N'Diaye (Rutgers)

-Reeves Nelson (UCLA)

-Jerome Randle (California)

-Ish Smith (Wake Forest)

-Willie Warren (Oklahoma)

-Tyler Wilkerson (Marshall)

-Sean Williams (Boston College)

Thoughts

-Old Dominion is very well-represented. At this rate, we're just a few months away from a "87ers Sign Nancy Lieberman to a 10-Day Contract" post from Rich.

-Our very own, Jake Pavorsky, is excited about Reeves Nelson, but he also has been referring to Nelson as "Big Country" in his emails. So take that with a grain of salt.

-Tanner's own Willie Warren is taking his talents to Newark, DE. Sweet Willie has become sort of a cult hero around these parts.

-Sean Williams was the 17th pick in the 2007 NBA Draft. That's sooooo Hinkie of Sam to acquire yet another first rounder. We can only assume that Sam also scribbled his phone number on a piece of paper and stuffed it into Morris Almond's pocket.

Update #1


Update #2


Did we really acquire Ish Smith's rights? Or this another one of those Ricky Sanchez type deals?
