Great article that should answer all the questions that people have asked here on this site. I hope other students (especially athletes) read the article and learn from it (i.e. dealing with pressure, being a leader, seeking needed assistance). Wishing Devin Cannady all the best during this next phase of his life.

If true, it is good to see Devin get an opporunity. Needless to say, he will have to shoot lights out on 3 pointers to even have a prayer for a NBA career but Europe will obviosuly be a good option for him.

Yeah, each NBA team places around 15 players on their summer league roster, and only a few will make the NBA team. And most of those that do are the draft picks from this year and last year. But it's still a great opportunity to audition for the G-League or international teams.

Cannady worked out for 6 NBA teams and received a summer league invite. For comparison, recent Princeton players, such as Cook, Bell, and Weisz, only had 1-2 NBA workouts and no summer league invitations, but still found good opportunities to play professionally overseas.

If he gets in one of those can’t-miss zones, somebody will give him a look. Shooting ability is rising as a commodity in the league.

No minutes for Devin. Oni scored 17 for Utah. If Oni shot like that against LSU, round 2 for Yale.

Oni is playing a little to passive but he has skills. Devin somehow needs to get on the floor.

I hope Cannady gets a chance today, He is an elite shooter. If he can light it up in Summer league, he should be fine.

Zero minutes again. Does not bode well.

While the box scores for the two Thunder summer league games do show zero minutes, Cannady has played about ~20 seconds in each of the two games. He played the last 20 seconds of the first half in Game 1, where they ran a play for him, but he missed the three. He did get a rebound on the defensive end. In Game 2, he played the last 16 seconds of the first quarter, again with the idea that he would take a three on the final possession, but the team turned the ball over.

The Thunder shot a horrendous 2-29 on threes in Game 2, and their opponent actually played zone against them for while, so maybe Devin will get a chance soon. Hopefully the Croatia game on Tuesday.

In 1985 there was a summer league held at Jadwin Gym. The NJ Nets signed Craig Robinson to their summer squad. My girlfriend and I went to Jadwin to see Robinson play against pro competition.


THERE WAS NO AIR CONDITIONING in Jadwin. We sat there. My girlfriend and I. In the sweltering heat. Watching the Frickin' Nets. Waiting for Craig. Who got a DNP-Coach's decision.


Since that day, I refuse to get excited about Tigers getting to play summer league ball. Not even Devin.

(Spoiler: She married me anyway.)

Sounds like Ok City in summer time.

I caught the end of the first half last night, and he was put in for the last play for 4 seconds or so. The ball never came his way.

Is the coach just throwing him a bone?

I think the Thunder know Cannady can shoot, but they haven't been willing to use him in regular game situations. Perhaps they think his size makes him a liability of defense. At those end-of-quarter situations after a timeout, they're just hoping to get him an open look for a three, since he probably is their best three point shooter.

Cannady is probably setting some type of +/- record per minute:
Game 1: +3 (0 minutes)
Game 2: +0 (0 minutes)
Game 3: +2 (0 minutes)
Game 4: +2 (0 minutes)
