Springfield Armor start process of restocking roster

Springfield Armor

D-League executives, including the Nets' Milton Lee, were on hand at Basketball City in Lower Manhattan Saturday, looking at 200 prospects who had paid $300 each to show their wares. It's the first step in the D-League re-stocking process, which culminates with the annual draft in November.

Lee, according to our sister site, RidiculousUpside, was particularly active, working the sideline. Lee "could often be seen throughout the day taking players who intrigued him off to the side for a little one on one observation," reported Ridiculous Upside, our sister site. The Nets have given Memphis their permission to speak with Lee about a job in the Grizzlies' front office.

Lester Prosper and Orion Outerbridge led a handful of taller players whose abilities seemed to stand out, reported RU's Keith Schlosser. Among the others on hand was Dami Sapara, a 6'6" guard from Staten Island and College of the Ozarks, who worked out for the Nets last week.

The Armor, who had only one player returning last season, holds D-League rights to several of its best players, including Dominique Jones, the former Mav (and Jason Kidd teammate), and two former Nets, Ben Uzoh and Dennis Horner, as well as former Net summer leaguers Carleton Scott and Edwin Ubiles. How many will return remains unknown.

How much the Nets will use the Armor this season will depend on development strategies shared by Billy King and Jason Kidd. Last year, the Nets sent Tyshawn Taylor and Toko Shengelia down multiple times and called up Kris Joseph, signing him to a two-year, partially guaranteed deal.
