Ben Uzoh Sent to D-League

According to the Nets official Twitter account, third-string PG Ben Uzoh has been reassigned to the Springfield Armor D-League organization.

In 32 games, Uzoh had been averaging 3.4 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists on 41 percent shooting. He’s looked a bit over his head at times, including most recently on Friday, when he got a few minutes in the first half against the Clippers. This move will get Uzoh some playing time. This is not a bad thing, as I think Uzoh does have a future as a bench player in this league, he just needs time to develop, and with Sundiata Gaines finding ways to contribute nightly, Uzoh wasn’t going to get those opportunities on the Nets any time soon.
