    For being known mostly as a shooter this guy has HORRIBLE shooting percentages in his 19 games played over 3 seasons!

    Pretty good NBDL numbers, for sure. 23.8 ppg, 5.1 assists.

    I didn't know a negative PER was possible. -7.17. Wow.

    I'm never critical of these kinds of signings because they never have an impact on anything. Mostly, I'm hoping he is hilarious in interviews or develops an entertaining high five routine.

    Yeah, I don't expect this dude to play. I hope he can keep up with Lance's cheerleading.

    No he won't play much but can be a solid 15th man smart player who has range for days. Makes me kind of sad love watching him every year in the Dleague. Travis Diener without the speed but has more size. We did need a shooter off the bench purely shooting he is the best out on the market. But brings nothing eles really. But I'm happy for him been watching this guy hoop for years looks like he could be the water boy but he can really play and knows his role.

    Well I am a fan of bigger PGs... But usually because they can get to the basket well and can defend... Doesn't sound like this guy's skill set though...

    Hey, I remember that guy. He played in the Utah Jazz SL team which played against the Pacers this summer. He had 11 points (3/4 shooting, 4/4 FTs), 2 assists and 1 booard.

    I also recall that the announcers said that his nickname at college was "Auto" because he was automatic from the free throw line. They said that they shot over 95% at college. The D-League stats put him at 96.2% and in his NBA career he has hit 32 of his 33 FTs (97%).

    Hey, I won't say no to someone who is so reliable at the line.

    Not his skill set at all. At the NBA level he will be beyond bad on defense and not a great penetrator I think he actually plays a lot like Cabbages just a better teammate.

    I've watched him play over the years, good to see him get yet another chance with the big boys. The dude is a knock down shooter and handles the ball well, smart player. I think he could run an offense if on the right team and the defense doesn't pressure him to much, which he should be fine doing during a season. Playoffs or important season games is another story, so I don't see the point of signing him on our team. Prolly just a 10 day contract.

    There are worse scrubs, but I'd still have preferred our last guy on the bench/first guy in a suit be a big guy. Oh well, whatever.

    Finally, the great shooter Larry Bird promised us a few years back.

    I attend Missouri State, so naturally I welcome the new addition.
    "Missouri's former basketball coach Norm Stewart would traditionally have his players stay in Kansas City, Missouri, before playing at Kansas, going so far as to require the team bus to buy its gasoline at a Missouri filling station and reprimanding players who ate in Kansas, as he did not want to put any money into Kansas' economy."- MIZ-ZOU

    If we have to fill a nearly meaningless 15th spot on the roster, then you might as well do it with a specialist. If someone goes down with a broken leg in the last second of game 7 of the finals and we have two free throws to win the championship, then you sub in this guy. Apart from that scenario I don't think he'll play much. I don't think having a 96% free throw shooter on your team could ever be bad though. This guy even makes Reggie look like a bad FT shooter.

    I thought signing Blake makes him our #14 player?
