   .....Third Prize Is You're Fired

Like Gist, Jerrells, Temple and Gee were covered in the Spurs summer league roster round-up thing. Jerrells averaged 10.8 points and 4.4 assists on 43% shooting; Temple totalled 11 points in his only 1 game; Gee averaged 14.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.4 steals, and was the team's best player. All of them did better than Baylor centre Josh Lomers, who in 4 games recorded only 21 minutes, 0 points, 2 rebounds, 0 assists, 0 blocks, 5 turnovers and 11 fouls. Tough week for Josh Lomers.

   15 More Ten Day Contract Candidates (Because Apparently 101 Wasn't Enough After All)

In some additional related bookkeeping, the reason for many of the players listed in the previous list was due to the NBA's contract guarantee date. All players on NBA rosters on or after January 10th have their contracts guaranteed for the remainder of the season (future seasons are unaffected); this also includes waivers. In-season waivers are 48 hours long and do not include weekends; therefore, with the 10th of January being a Monday, players had to be waived by close of business on Wednesday 5th in order to have cleared waivers before the deadline date.

Eleven players with not fully guaranteed contracts were waived in the hours before that deadline: Steve Novak, Damien Wilkins, Jarron Collins, John Lucas III, Ime Udoka, Lester Hudson, Ronald Dupree, Brian Skinner, Pops Mensah-Bonsu, Sundiata Gaines and Rodney Carney. Twenty seven unguaranteed players survived; Delonte West, Von Wafer, Brian Scalabrine, Samardo Samuels, Manny Harris, Alonzo Gee, Brian Cardinal, Melvin Ely, Gary Forbes, Jeremy Lin, Ish Smith, A.J. Price, Ike Diogu, Luc Richard Mbah A Moute, Ben Uzoh, Didier Ilunga-Mbenga, Shawne Williams, Malik Allen, Garret Siler, Patty Mills, Sean Marks, Darnell Jackson, Chris Quinn, Sonny Weems, Jeremy Evans, Cartier Martin and Hamady Ndiaye. Players with contracts who had already become guaranteed due to specific guarantee stipulations in their contracts were Sherron Collins, Derrick Brown, Josh McRoberts, Willie Warren, Derrick Caracter, Luther Head and Joey Dorsey.

   2010 Summer League Rosters: San Antonio Spurs

Alonzo Gee

It wasn't a surprise when Gee went undrafted; he was good at Alabama, but not particularly good at any one thing. But it was a surprise when he then became hot sizzle. Gee went to camp with the Minnesota Timberwolves, and went to the D-League after being cut. He proceeded to tear the thing up, averaging 21.1 points and 6.7 rebounds per game, being named an All-Star and winning the rookie of the year award. This first earned him a call-up to the Washington Wizards, for whom he played two ten day contracts and averaged 7.4 points and 2.9 rebounds per game. For some reason, the Wizards opted not to keep him around after that, so the Spurs dangled a chunk of their MLE - $150,000, to be exact - just for Gee to then not play for them. That's how those guys roll. They essentially buy your loyalty. Anyone can do it, but only the Spurs do.

   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 24

- Alonzo Gee

Gee went undrafted out of Alabama, and made his way to the Spurs summer league roster. From there he made his way to the Timberwolves training camp roster, and after being waived he was the 6th overall pick in the D-League draft by the Austin Toros. This cheers me up because in July, I wrote:

"The chances of him playing for the Austin Toros next season are about one jillion percent."

So that's nice.

On the season, Gee is averaging 20.6 points and 6.7 rebounds per game, and one of the D-League's best players. He still does not have strong three point range - Gee is shooting 38% from down there, but on about 1.5 attempts per game - yet he's scoring well anyway. And he certainly has the size for the role. So another training camp placement seems inevitable.

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.
