GATORADE Call-Up Candidates: 12/6

GATORADE Call-Up Candidates: 12/6
Here is the latest list of ten players that can be considered the top current candidates for a GATORADE Call-Up. If you disagree or think that other players should be mentioned, feel free to leave a comment below.

Antonio Daniels, Texas - Daniels keeps on trucking as the Legends have extended their winning-streak to five games, and he's stating his case as the NBA D-League's top point guard. He has been proficient at getting through the defense and to the foul line, where he is excellent at 56-66 this season. He's also taking good care of the ball, turning it over only 11 times compared to 47 assists so far.

Othyus Jeffers, Iowa - Jeffers' shooting has fallen by the wayside in the past two games, but he has been stellar at evey other facet of the game this season. One of the league's top scorers and rebounders from the shooting guard/small forward spot, Jeffers also checks in at fourth in the league with 2.3 steals per game. One of the better one-on-one defenders in the league, Jeffers is helping Iowa limit opposing shooters to just .432 from the field, second-best in the NBA D-League.

Alan Anderson, New Mexico - Anderson was held under 22 points for the first time this season when he scored just ten on Saturday, but he still leads the league with 25.2 per game. The former Michigan State star is shooting an astounding .651 (41-63) from the field, including .519 (14-27) from three-point range. Anderson is also an excellent rebounder for a 6-6 guard/forward, pulling down 6.4 boards per game. View video highlights.

Courtney Sims, Iowa - It's almost been an automatic basket when Sims gets the ball in the paint this season. The former MVP is shooting .679 (55-81) from the field to the tune of 18.6 points per game. He'd likely be putting up even bigger scoring numbers if he wasn't on an Iowa team that has plenty of other effective offensive options. View video highlights.

Trey Johnson, Bakersfield - Johnson is neck-and-neck with Anderson as the league's best perimeter scorer after another huge week for the Jam. He's putting up 24.9 points and shooting better than 50 percent from the field. NBA teams have to be loving the consistency of Johnson, who has scored 21 points or better in all seven of his games this season. View video highlights.

Patrick Ewing Jr, Reno - After narrowly missing out on a roster spot with the Knicks, Ewing has done all he can against NBA D-League opponents to prove that he deserves a roster spot. The 6-8 forward is stuffing the boxscore with 17.7 points, 8.1 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 2.3 steals, and nearly a block per game. One of the best athletes in the NBA D-League, Ewing can further his cause for a call-up if he improves on his .438 (35-80) field-goal percentage. View video highlights.

Sean Williams, Texas - The athletic center from Boston College is playing a big role in a hot start for the Legends. Williams has blocked multiple shots in every game and leads the league with 3.5 per game while also adding 7.3 rebounds. Playing with a group of established scorers, Williams is taking advantage of his chances on the offensive end, posting 13.8 points on .607 (34-56) shooting.

Aaron Miles, Reno - The veteran point guard's play has him challenging the likes of Daniels, Walker Russell, and Curtis Stinson as the league's best point guard early in 2010-11. Heading into this week, the former Kansas Jayhawk leads all qualified players with 9.9 assists while also displaying some scoring punch with 16.3 points per game. The one knock on Miles that can limit his NBA prospects is his lack of an outside game. Miles has only attempted three three-pointers and has yet to make one this season.

Orien Greene, Utah - The former Celtic had a solid first season in Utah, but he's really stepping up his game in 2010-11. The 6-4 guard is one of the league's best scorers with 23.4 points on .561 (64-114) from the field, including a red-hot .552 (16-29) from long-range. He's also an active defender who led the league in steals last season. Some trades and player movement have left Greene as the go-to guy in the Flash lineup, and he's look to take advantage and earn a return to an NBA roster. View video highlights.

Antonio Anderson, Rio Grande Valley - The 2009-10 GATORADE Call-Up was one of the league's best guards last season, and he is back with the Vipers seeking a return to the NBA. Anderson is an effective scorer on the NBA D-League level despite his lack of an outside shot, but his main strength comes on the defensive end, where his length and athelticism makes him one of the league's best perimter defenders. He's been a bit inconsistent since returning to the Vipers but look for Anderson to return to form as one of the league's top guards before long.

Patrick Ewing Jr. is a player

Patrick Ewing Jr. is a player who is ready to play in the NBA, in my opinion. He really has worked on his game and could be a good athletic spark off the bench, who can put up some points, play some D and run the floor
