   Really Overdue 2010 D-League Draft Review

36th: - Texas Legends - Justin Dentmon, Washington

Dentmon is even more size-deficient than [Lawrence] Westbrook, for his measures in at only 5'11. He briefly formed an explosive midget backcourt with Huskies teammate Isaiah Thomas - Explosive Midget Backcourt would be a decent band name - but graduated in 2009 and went to Israel to play for Hapoel Afula. Dentmon played extremely well in Israel, leading the league in scoring with 19.8ppg and tacking on 3.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.8 steals per game while shooting 45% from the field and 36% from three point range. Being a 5'11 shooting guard has obvious problems, as evidenced by Westbrook above, and Dentmon has never showed the point guard ability of someone like Tweety Carter (who played off the ball for a long time, but, when given the chance to play point guard, proved he could do it). By this stage, he probably never will. He does, however, get buckets.

Justin Dentmon - Dentmon scores wherever he goes. He averaged 14.4ppg in only 28mpg in his senior season for Washington, and then last year led the whole of Israel with a 19.8ppg average. This season, with the D-League's Texas Legends, Dentmon is putting up 18.8 more points per game, and he's doing it on 51% shooting. And he's 5'11. You wouldn't normally look at 5'11 scorers, but when they score big and score efficiently, you have to.
