   Really Overdue 2010 D-League Draft Review
2010-11-15

83rd: - Austin Toros - Vernon Hamilton, Clemson

Hamilton was recently in training camp with the Detroit Pistons, his second such training camp stint in three years. That move prompted this exciting blurb:

Hamilton is a defensive minded point guard, formerly of Clemson. It helps to be defensive minded if you're playing at Clemson, and Hamilton was named to the ACC All-Defensive Team in 2006, averaging 12 and 3 that season. However, despite the defense, Hamilton is a bad shooter, very bad free throw shooter, and undersized for the NBA, who is also not a particularly good half court point guard. Nonetheless, he's doing OK in Europe, averaging 19.0 points and 2.9 assists in the Swiss league last season.


He did not make the Pistons roster, and was never going to. But it's quite the CV boost. And it's perhaps bizarre that said CV boost has only gotten him this far.

He can also now claim to have signed in the NBA twice; he once signed with the Cavaliers for training camp, but did not make the team. Not many can make that claim.

2011-03-13

Vernon Hamilton - 13 games, 36.8, mpg, 26.8 ppg, 8.5 rpg, 4.9 apg, 3.8 spg, 0.2 bpg, 3.2 TOpg, 45% FG, 26% 3PT, 59% FT

[...] After Lamizana left, Hamilton became the only import remaining - with nothing to play for by this time, there wasn't much point in getting another. had previously played for the Austin Toros and Dakota Wizards of the D-League, averaging over 13 points and 3 assists per game, and was statistically dominant in his short time in China. He seems like a good candidate for a redux next season.
