Springfield Armor look to fill out roster in today’s draft

The Springfield Armor has begun to piece together its 2011-2012 roster. JamesOn Curry, Lance Hurdle, Jerry Smith, Eugene Spates, and L.D. Williams have already re-signed with Springfield. They will enter training camp, along with at least one player from the open tryouts held Oct. 22-23.

The rest of the roster will consist of Armor draftees from the 2011 D-League Draft, which takes place Thursday night.

The D-League Draft follows a serpentine format, meaning the order will alternate each round. For example, the Los Angeles D-Fenders have the first pick of the draft. In the second round, the D-Fenders pick last, and so on.

Springfield had the 16th overall pick (the last pick in the first round), but traded it to the Tulsa 66ers in exchange for Scottie Reynolds. Springfield does have the 17th overall pick (the first pick in the second round).

The Armors other picks include, the 48th, 49th, 80th, 81st, 112th, and 113th.

Some former NBA players are eligible for this year’s draft, including Jamaal Tinsley, Gabe Pruitt, Alando Tucker, Jamal Sampson, and Cedric Bozeman.
