Mustafa Shakur RumorsAll NBA Players
Mustafa Shakur: My very first day on the job. Fresh off a 4-5 hour flight from a D-League road trip in Dakota , Coach Saunders along with the Wizards organization gave me my 1st NBA playing opportunity. I knew maybe 2 plays, but he didn’t hesitate for one second when he put me in the game. Always found a way to include me even after injury and not being 100%. Forever thankful. One of the best basketball minds I’ve ever been around. My deepest condolences to his family. Rip Coach Flip Saunders.
As reported earlier today by ESPN’s Marc Stein, but reported here at DleagueDigest.com first (that Fab Melo was entering the NBADL), here is the complete breakdown of a four-team deal that includes Fab Melo, Tyler Brown, Daniel Orton, Mustafa Shakur and Sean Singletary. Texas Legends get Fab Melo’s NBADL rights (claimed by Maine). Maine Red Claws receive Tyler Brown (claimed by Texas), and Daniel Orton (from Tulsa). Tulsa 66ers get Mustafa Shakur (from Erie BayHawks). Erie BayHawks receive Sean Singletary (from Texas Legends).
The Erie BayHawks have started to build their 2013-14 roster prior to the start of Friday night’s NBA Development League Draft. Four players from last year’s squad will return to the BayHawks for Training Camp. They will be joined by two players the team acquired via the affiliate rule, which allows D-League teams to obtain the rights of players released by their parent clubs during NBA Training Camps. Returning to the team are guards Mustafa Shakur, Terrel Harris and Nick Covington as well as forward Terrence Jennings. Forwards C.J. Leslie and Justin Brownlee will join Erie following their releases from the New York Knicks.
