   2010 Summer League Rosters: Milwaukee Bucks

DeMarcus Nelson

Nelson spent last year in Italy, playing for Air Avellino. He averaged 8.9ppg, 3.7rpg, 1.2apg and 1.5spg, but shot only 23% from three point range. Rather than his offense catching up to his defense, it actually got worse last year. He's not normally as bad of a shooter as that.

An oft-cited DeMarcus Nelson trivia states that Nelson is the first undrafted rookie in the history of the NBA to start the first game of his first season. But he wasn't. John Amaechi did it, too.

- DeMarcus Nelson

Duke graduate DeMarcus Nelson started his first professional season last year on the Warriors roster, finished it on the Bulls roster, and spend most of the gap in between in the D-League. In that sense, it's not been entirely unlike the career path of Rob Kurz. (And, hopefully, Anthony Morrow.) Nelson hasn't been in the NBA this year, however, and has instead been playing for Air Avellino in Serie A. He has averaged 9.7 points and 3.5 rebounds in 24.8 minutes per game, but has shot only 26% from three point range.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
