HoopsHype Brady Heslip rumors


February 20, 2015 Updates

If the experiment was to see if professionals could play Grinnell’s offense then it has already failed. The Reno Bighorns have become the D-League’s most entertaining team, averaging nearly 140 points and 50 three-point shots a game. One player, Brady Heslip, hit 20 three-pointers in the first two games, scoring 78 points and became a YouTube celebrity for a week. They are fast, aggressive and playing a way no one else in the D-League is playing. But they are not running Grinnell’s system. Not anymore. Reno’s ever-changing 10-man roster has forced Arseneault to scratch the hockey-style substitutions and the full-court press. It’s tough to run shifts and a pressure defense with only 10 players especially when one of those players is a 7ft 5in, 360lbs center named Sim Bhullar who Arseneault affectionately calls “Big Sim”. There are many unique things Big Sim can do. Running a full-court press for more than half a game is not one of them. The Guardian

Still, multiple NBA scouts seem to agree that remaining in the D-League, was, nevertheless, the right decision for Heslip. A source confirms to RidiculousUpside.com that the guard was indeed close to signing a deal overseas, but instead chose to stick around (especially with the Showcase right around the corner) because he believed a call-up to The Association was well within his grasp. While his stock may have taken a hit most recently, scouts still believe he made the right call. "Why would he want to go anywhere else?" one added. Ridiculous Upside

We asked Gino Pilato of the fantastic website D-League Digest for the scouting report on Millsap and this is what he had to say: "He will look to attack the basket often. Despite his knack for finding alleys in the lane, Millsap will step back or take the pull-up jumper without hesitation. He turns the ball over too much, but can really impact a game on the defensive end. When matched up against Reno, Millsap caused fits for Brady Heslip, he was in his pocket every chance he had. The following contest against L.A., Millsap took on another tough offensive assignment in Manny Harris and was once again successful. Position-wise, Millsap is in a grey area in the NBA, but can serve as a forward or guard in the D-League." HoopsHype
