Roberts just left Bradley, where he averaged 9.2ppg, 4.6rpg, 2.2apg and 1.5spg in his senior season. He also appeared in the 2010 dunk contest, as did the aforementioned L.D. Williams, finishing second to Vermont star, recent Clipper and current Jam forward Marqus Blakely (also mentioned above).
Roberts's best known moment might be this game winning 75 foot shot with 0.9 seconds left to beat Oakland in the 2009 CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament quarter finals. Unfortunately, the cameraman took that play off.
Roberts has developed nicely in this three D-League seasons, making the Defensive Third Team this season whilst also pouring in 14.4 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.3 assists. Very athletic, he conceivably would have a chance of making it in the NBA under that oft-cited "three and D" banner if he could up the "three" part of that from his usual low 30's percentage. Unfortunately, dynamic though he be, it's not enough without this. He is in much the same situation - and, save for the pseudo-point guard skills, much the same player - as the aforementioned Rodney Green. Both likely fall short.
Note: Non-US teams that the player
has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in
that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not
the top division. 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.
