I'm covering the NBADL this year for draftexpress.com, and I'll be attending the majority of the games for the Fort Worth Flyers. I made this thread so we can watch the progress of Dwayne Jones and Bracey Wright, and talk about other D League players who may be of interest.

Bracey Wright was named a starter for the Florida Flame, while Jones is coming off the bench. The Flame play their first game on November 25th, the Friday after Thanksgiving. The official site of the NBADL is www.nba.com/dleague
You can find the Flame's schedule at this link: http://www.nba.com/dleague/florida/fla_0506schedule.html

I attended two of the practices for the Fort Worth Flyers last week. These were held at a high school, and I was the only media member present, and it was pretty interesting. Deji Ankindele was a player that interested me as a second round pick before the draft, and for a while, I liked him a little better than Jones. He is known as a shotblocker, although rebounding seems to be the best part of his game to me, but he is a good athelete. In drills, you can see how bad of a shooter he is. He went 0/8 from the ft line in one drill. Deji had a relatively quiet first game, but had 23 points and 9 boards in the game the Flyers had tonight. Keith Lankford is also on this team, and he is fun to watch, though he has no J. MaJic aka Darryl Dorsey, formerly of the AND1 tour a couple years back, plays point for the Flyers (a positions shared with Vonteego Cummings), and he is a much better floor general than I expected to see. He tries risky passes at times, and just doesn't have the size to play defense in the NBA. So, if anybody has anymore questions about the Flyers, or any other players or teams in the NBADL, let me know.

Langford is an undersized 2 with no J. He has a good handle, and is pretty athletic. In practice the guy loved to dunk, but he had a problem passing up open shooting looks to drive into crowds and force up shots. The coaches really wanted him to pop the midrange J the second he came off the screen.

Well, Wright is not get his work in at the point, which is the main reason for him being down there. He is scoring good and shooting well though.
