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

Kevin Kruger - UNLV graduate Kruger has tried not to sign in the D-League lately, picking up stints with the quickly bankrupted Martos Napoli, as well as a stint in Mexico with Soles de Mexicali a couple of months ago. Yet, inevitably, he wound up back for a fourth season with the Utah Flash, starting at point guard alongside Orien Greene's two guard. In 13 games with the team this season, Kruger is averaging 16.8 points and 5.0 assists, alongside only 1.9 turnovers, on shooting percentages of 41%/38%/89%. He is getting to the line over 7 times a game; in fact, he has taken 96 free throws, compared to 71 three point attempts, compared to 60 two point attempts. So it's an efficient 41% FG he's shooting. However, despite being a good shooter and solid half court point guard, Kruger is not big, not fast and not athletic, with no NBA physical tools to his credit and only a solid yet unspectacular playmaking ability. He ranks just behind Chris Quinn in every facet of the game.

   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 37

- Kevin Kruger

As mentioned in this rundown of the Napoli debacle, Kruger found himself some Italian volunteer work this summer. In 5 games for the team that wasn't paying him, Kruger averaged 4.2 points and 1.8 assists before jumping ship in November. He later returned to the D-League and the Utah Flash, for whom he has averaged 15.1 points and 4.8 assists per game, shooting 47% from three point range.

By the way, since that Napoli story was written, they have achieved their best loss of the lot, a narrow 169-29 defeat at the hands of Benetton Treviso. They were outscored by 140, outrebounded by 51, and outstolen by 30. Benetton shot 59-76 from two point range and 16-36 from three: Napoli shot 7-25 from two and 4-25 from three. Five Benetton players had more than 4 steals, and even Daniel Hackett had 3 more, along with 6 assists and 4 rebounds in only 8 minutes. However, in a moment symptomatic of his season, Hackett did not score.
