Can Tony Mitchell (D-League) make it in the NBA?
Does anybody else think Tony Mitchell could make it in the NBA. I remember seeing him in college and thinking he would be a good NBA prospect. Led Alabama with 15.2 PPG, 7.1 RPG and 1.6 SPG as a sophomore but was suspended midway through his junior season then asked to be released from the Tide.
He ended up in the D-League where he was this past season's rookie of the year and was All-NBA D-League First Team. He's still just 23 years old and I think could be a solid bench player for a team in the league. Maybe even a good backup for Leonard in SA. I think he could be better than most small forwards available in the draft. Anyone else think so?
yea i honestly thought he was going to be on a team this year. He has some high flying dunks in college that made me say 'WOW'...i think he can absolutely find his way on a team but in this day in age the nba-worthy players dont always get famous with just a snap of a finger....luck of the draw
