yeah he should have

i agree about him going to try out for the sixers. i think he could help him and he should have def made the second round last night. also i think heytvelt should have been a pick and id like to see him make the cavs roser. hes big, athletic, and can shoot. his athleticism and scoring is what the cavs need in another big man

He was not another Micheal

He was not another Micheal Redd... But i think a team like the Knicks, Clippers, 76ers, Mavs and Kings will take a look at him for a good rotational player.

Dionte Christmas should have been drafted he is a great shooter. Im suprised that the Knicks didn't try to get him in the second round since they couldn't get Curry in the first round like they wanted.

Roger Mason Jr. like?

I think that Dionte Christmas is a guy that could serve as a Roger Mason Jr. type player. A primary sub who comes off the bench and gives you quality scoring and good perimeter shooting. I'm not sure if he'll ever develop into a Michael Redd, but I do know that guys like Dionte Christmas are the backbone of Championship teams. Some situations that I think would be good for him include: Cleveland, Phoenix, New Jersey, Chicago, New Orleans. None of these teams have legitimate scoring guards coming off the bench that I can think of. Phoenix does, but i dont think that Steve Kerr would down a good shooter coming off the bench. He's knows that role all too well. New York works also. Aside from Marbury, D'Antoni's never met a guard he didnt like.

Summer league, then NBDL

This always happens to undrafted players. Some NBA team picks them up on a summer league roster, only to have the player underwhelm the coaching staff and end up on a NBDL team. I think Christmas should've been taken in the mid-40s, but hey, I guess they thought he didn't have an NBA body and he didn't play against great competition. It happens.
