With D-League season over, which Armor players could have Nets futures?

Springfield Armor

The Armor lost the last game of the D-League season to the Texas Legends, 118-113, in Frisco, TX, Saturday. The loss left the defending Eastern Division champs with an 18-32 record and six straight defeats to finish the season. On the face of it, not a good season, but there were bright spots.

Tyshawn Taylor and Tornike Shengelia got bigger D-League minutes than any other Nets draft choice in the three years the Armor has been the Nets affiliate. In fact, Taylor (24.6 ppg) and Shengelia (24.3) finished third and fourth in D-League scoring. Kris Joseph, who improved his numbers with the Armor after being traded from the Celtics affiliate in Maine, finished 25th at 18.6, 19.0 with Springfield. Willie Reed, who had 19 points, 13 rebounds and two blocks in the season finale, finished 12th in shooting percentage after a late season surge.

How many of the Armor might show up at the Orlando summer league wearing the Brooklyn Basketball uniform? Joseph, who's likely to get a contract from the Nets this week, is virtually certain. The Nets would like to have Reed, but he could get a call-up from other team this week NBA scouts have been seen in Springfield watching him. Seven clubs, including two current playoff teams, the Grizzlies and Warriors, have roster openings and D-Leaguers can be called up anytime before the season's end in 10 days.

No doubt, the Nets had the Armor pick up ex-Maverick Dominique Jones so they could take a look at him. Edwin Ubiles, a 6'6" shooting guard who was on the summer league team last year, might be invited back. Same with Carleton Scott, a 6'8" swingman who was inconsistent at Springfield. Justin Johnson, a 6'2" guard out of tiny Concordia-Irvine, played well for the Armor at the end of the season. The two former Nets, Ben Uzoh and Dennis Horner, could get better deals overseas.
