He’s happy with that choice. And with his opportunity. “It did stick for the rest of the year,” Dedmon said, smiling. “I got the rest of the year guaranteed, so it works.”

Dedmon’s 10-day contract with the team expires today, but the combination of Davies’ injury and the 7-foot center’s play seem to make it a foregone conclusion that he will be signing at least another 10-day contract. “I like what we’ve seen in him,” coach Brett Brown said. “There’s a size, obviously, but there’s an enthusiasm and an energy. When you look at him, his history really not having started to play basketball until he was 18, and at his early age now you feel that his upside could be pretty significant. We’ll make the official decision [today] but I’m thrilled with what he’s done so far.”

Dedmon, now 24, played a handful of games at the high school level, before getting eased into the sport (and into 23 games) by the coaches at Antelope Valley (Calif.) Junior College. From there, he played 51 games over two seasons at Southern Cal, then entered the NBA Draft with only “two classes (left) to get my degree.”
