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

16th: - Idaho Stampede - Salim Stoudamire, Arizona

Salim, whom you'll know as a shooter, was mentioned earlier this summer in the Best of What's Left free agency breakdown:

Damon's cousin has not played outside of the NBA in his professional career. He also hasn't played in an NBA game since April 16th 2008. After the Hawks passed on re-signing him that summer, Stoudamire signed with the Spurs for training camp, and had $200,000 of his minimum salary contract. This would have given him the inside track on a roster spot, had he been healthy. But he wasn't, and the vegan was waived in favour of Desmon Farmer (who I guess you could also add to this list, although I won't). Stoudamire stayed on the shelf for most of the rest of the year, but was picked up by the Bucks for no obvious reason with about two weeks left in the season and signed through this season as well. However, the Bucks waived him this summer, and Salim has not signed or played anywhere since. Because of injuries and his one dimensional skillset, it seems unlikely that he ever returns to the NBA.


As mentioned there, this will be the first time Salim has played outside of the D-League; it's been NBA or bust the whole way through until now. In addition to providing a platform for developing young players, or young players on the cusp of the bigs, the D-League is also sometimes a place for veterans to rebuild their careers. As we'll see later, Salim isn't the only player both of those statements apply to.
