   The best of what's left after what was the best of what's left has gone and is no longer left
2010-08-21

- Thomas Gardner - Gardner signed with the Grizzlies for training camp last year, but was an early cut. He later signed in Belgium, and scored 100 points in 8 games for the Antwerp Giants. 63 of those points came via the three, which demonstrates Gardner's style on offense. Last year was a bit of a nothing year for him, but with two years of NBA experience under his belt, he is capable of good things.

   2010 Summer League Rosters: Utah Jazz

Thomas Gardner

After going undrafted, Gardner was on the Bulls roster for two months of the 2007/08 season, and on the Hawks one for all of 2008/09. He also signed with the Grizzlies for training camp last season; however, even with all that time served in the NBA, he has only managed to appear in 20 games and 143 minutes.

When the Grizzlies waived Gardner, he went to Belgium and signed for Antwerp. He didn't shoot well in his three Belgian league games, averaging 9.7 points on 35% shooting, but in 5 EuroChallenge games he averaged a much healthier 14.2 points on 46% shooting. However, the fans didn't take to Gardner's performance (which they considered underwhelming for a man with such an NBA resumé, and he was benched in February with a knee injury.

Furthermore, in true Gardner style, shooting numbers are his only numbers. Gardner is a shooting specialist in a decent frame, and doesn't do much else. If Morris Almond didn't work out, neither will Gardner. Not here.

- Thomas Gardner

Gardner spent his third consecutive October in his NBA training camp when he signed with the Memphis Grizzlies, but he was an early and quiet cut. He then moved to Belgium in January where he is playing for the Antwerp Giants. Gardner hasn't shot well in his first three Belgian league games, averaging 9.7 points on 35% shooting, but in 5 EuroChallenge games he is averaging a much healthier 14.2 points on 46% shooting.

I did not mention any other statistics of his because, true to form, there are very few of them. The guy is a shooting specialist.
