   Where Are They Now, 2010; The 75th And Final Part
2010-06-02

- Derrick Zimmerman

Former Mississippi State guard Derrick Zimmerman averaged 11.6 points, 3.8 rebounds, 4.0 assists and a league leading 2.4 steals per game for Budivelnyk Kiev in 2008/09, winning the Ukrainian Superleague defensive player of the year award. It was the only time in his whole career, including four years of college, that he has ever averaged double digits in points. And this is a former draftee we're talking about here. That's how good the defense is - it matters not that he can't score. Not really.

Zimmerman stayed there for a second season this year, but he saw his numbers drop down to 7.2 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.4 steals, as he had to share court time with Khalid El-Amin (20.5ppg, 5.1apg). Zimmerman also has never learnt to shoot; in 37 games this year, he hit only two three pointers. They came in the same game.
