The Armor may be looking for a point guard Thursday night when the D-League draft roll is called. Their floor general from last year, Scottie Reynolds, had until Monday to commit to returning and decided against it. Reynolds, along with returning JamesOn Curry, were the best players on the Armor last season.
The draft, which is held by conference call, goes eight rounds. The Armor's first pick is #17, the first pick in the second round. The Armor traded their first round pick a year ago for the rights to Reynolds, the Villanova All-American. Milton Lee, the Nets director of minor league operations, will run the draft for the Armor.
Lee is also the featured player in the latest edition of Nets' "Destination: Springfield". Lee and Armor coach Bob MacKinnon Jr. are shown at the team's Open Workouts October 22-23. The Nets camera crew will also be on hand Thursday night for the D-League Draft.
