Griz coach Lionel Hollins said Selby's D-League tour would give him "an opportunity to see four or five game tapes to see exactly what he is. We've been trying to patch him in at point guard. Is he a point guard? We don't know. Is he better at the off-guard spot? We don't know. He's never played it for us. I'd just like to get an opportunity to see him when he's playing a lot of minutes."

Iman Shumpert: Friday night, I headed out to Bridgeport, Conn., to play in another charity game for us locked-out players. The people who came out — maybe 2,000 — provided us plenty energy with cheers and competitive boos. I decided to sit out the last part of the game after going up for a dunk and feeling an awkward pain in my knee. I could have kept playing, but decided just to ice it to ensure I was OK. Nothing major. I think it was due to not warming up at half because I was hanging out with fans and doing photos and autographs, which is partly why we were there. Some of the many participants were Tyreke Evans, Sam Young, Josh Selby, Wes Mathews, Nolan Smith, Howard Thomkins and Travis Leslie. My team won, 171-169. The best part for me was getting a chance to connect with more Knicks fans praying for a season! It was a great turnout. New York Post

Selby hasn't already signed in Europe in part because his agent, Andy Miller, cited two timetables for players to commit overseas. Miller said European teams have a late October/early November deadline for when training camps begin. There's another cut-off date around mid-December when teams have to finalize rosters. "I've looked at different situations," Miller told The Commercial Appeal last month. "I'm 100 percent sure I can find opportunities (for Selby) ... But it has to be the right job and the right environment in terms of living. He's in the development stage so I just can't send him anywhere." Memphis Commercial Appeal

But the 6-3 guard's ascent to the next level has been rudely interrupted by a league-imposed lockout that threatens the 2011-12 season and Selby's rookie campaign. Instead of enjoying the bright lights of the NBA, Selby continues to work around one of the darkest stages of his basketball life. He's playing the waiting game in lieu of contests at FedExForum, and insists there are no regrets. "I don't regret any thing," said Selby, a Baltimore native. "I've just been doing what I've always been doing. There's nothing us rookies can do about the lockout so I just wait to hear what's going on." Memphis Commercial Appeal

Selby's spent most of his time this summer with the likes of Anthony, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul. And it didn't taken long for Griz pillars Mike Conley, Rudy Gay, O.J. Mayo and Zach Randolph to vouch for the 20-year-old Selby's potential. "He's the steal of the draft," Randolph said. "The young fella is going to help us." Memphis Commercial Appeal
