   Anybody Wanna See Second Prize? Second Prize Is A Set Of Steak Knives.....

Strawberry spent his first professional season in the NBA, playing in 39 games with the Suns in 2007/08. The two years hence have been spent in Italy and the D-League, the latter of which saw him averaging 13.7 point and 5.5 assists per game last year for the Reno Bighorns. Those decent if underwhelming numbers don't do justice to Strawberry's good defensive play at both guard spots, and his decent slashing ability - however, they're also not really call-up calibre numbers from a D-League player. In Strawberry's defense, he didn't start a single game, coming off the bench behind Will Blalock and Desmon Farmer in every one. If he returns to the D-League next year and starts, this will help his numbers (and thus his call-up chances) considerably. With the Hornets, he has a chance to stick anyway, as does Shakur. However, the late signing of Jannero Pargo may have closed the door on either or both of them.

D.J. Strawberry - Strawberry has been playing two guard this season alongside Miles, and has also had to battle for time with Warriors assignee point guard Jeremy Lin. Last year, Strawberry had to come off the bench behind two other good quality D-League guards; Russell Robinson/Will Blalock and Desmond Farmer. He's therefore not had much run as a full time point guard over the last two years, splitting time between the two guard positions depending on who is around him. Nevertheless, Strawberry is putting up 13.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 29 minutes per contest, whilst playing his usual good quality defense, and had a realistic shot of making an NBA roster as recently as three months ago, when he signed with the Hornets for training camp.

D.J. Strawberry

Strawberry spent last year in the D-League, averaging 13.7 points and 5.5 assists per game for the Reno Bighorns. Strong defensively at both guard spots, Strawberry's jumpshot is improved, hitting 35% from three point range; he's also a good athlete that doesn't make too many mistakes.

A bigger, more passy, less highlighty version of a Shannon Brown replacement? It's possible.
