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

58th: - Rio Grande Valley Vipers - Richard Roby, Colorado

Roby played with the Nuggets in summer league, at which time I wrote this about him:

Roby is a Colorado graduate, which explains a lot. He was a draft candidate in 2008, but went undrafted, and has spent the last couple of years in Israel. For Maccabi Haifa last year, Roby struggled, averaging only 7.7 points and 2.5 rebounds per game. Roby is a 6'6 guard who plays decent defense and rebounds well, yet as his jumpshot release has improved, its effectiveness has disappeared. Roby has shot under 30% from three in both his professional seasons. And his defense, while good, is not good enough to overlook his lack of offense.


In that tournament, Roby averaged 6.8 points and 3.4 rebounds per game, but shot only 32% from the field. He started this season in Mexico, signed with Halcones Rojos de Veracruz and averaging 14.9 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.9 steals before coming home.

- Richard Roby

Colorado graduate Roby has spent the first two years of his career in Israel. He spent his first year with Bnei Hasharon, averaging 9.8 points and 2.6 rebounds per game, and this year he moved to Maccabi Haifa. Roby is averaging a similar 8.7 points and 2.5 rebounds in 17.4 minutes per game there, but is shooting only 27% from three point range and is turning it over 1.7 times per game (compared to only 1.3 assists).

Here's a little video about Richard Roby made by Bnei Hasharon, notable for its brief Cookie Belcher cameo. (He's the other American in the clip.) Belcher is now into his fifth season with the team, and is averaging 12.1 points and 3.0 assists.
