Marty McNeal, the Bee's former Kings beat writer and NBA columnist, has a blog now, titled "Marty Mac's World," which was also the name of his column. There's a FanShot on the front page with McNeal's quote from Joe Maloof that no teams have asked for permission to interview Geoff Petrie. There's something else of interesting on Mac's blog: a full VSL roster. Here's what McNeal reports:
Donald Sloan / Tyrese Rice / Devan Downey
Sylven Landesberg / Dionte Christmas / Ryan Thompson
Omri Casspi / Donté Greene / Tyren Johnson / Lee Cummard
Hassan Whiteside / Wayne Chism / Jason Ellis
DeMarcus Cousins / Steven Hill / Connor Atchley
That's a full 16 players, and no Jason Thompson, who was believed to be headed to Vegas but apparently won't.
Rice went undrafted out of Boston College in 2009 and played in Greece last season. He averaged 17/5 as a senior at BC.
Downey is a tiny scoring guard out of South Carolina who just went undrafted. Johnson was on the second round bubble last week after a solid 18/8 senior season at Lousiana-Lafayette, but faces an uphill battle playing for a franchise with a newly deep frontcourt.
Cummard, a shooter, went undrafted out of BYU in 2009; he got cut by a D-League team last season, for what it's worth.
Jason Evans possibly doesn't exist, at least according to Google. Hill has one NBA game under his belt, and played with the Tulsa 66ers in parts of the past two seasons. Atchley is a former University of Texas big man who went undrafted in 2009 and bounced around the D-League last season.
Welcome to the Internet, Marty.
