Due to the recent acquisition of point guard Marcus E. Hill, the Armor’s roster will reach the new league maximum of 12 players.
During an interview last week Coach MacKinnon commented,
“With the NBA starting training camp, we may lose a couple of guys to camp, so things happen,” MacKinnon said. “We’re always on the lookout for good players.”
In the same article written by Jeff Thomas of The Republican, Thomas writes,
“MacKinnon said there are no plans in place to add a 12th player, but if the right player presents himself the Armor would certainly take advantage of this window for expansion.”
This brings up an interesting scenario with the NBA’s training camp rosters needing to be filled up next week. The Armor bringing in another point guard, makes you wonder if the New Jersey Nets have already been in contact with Springfield about dipping into their “minor” league teams’ roster.
This leads me to believe that the Nets will call-up JamesOn Curry for training camp on December 9th. With Curry putting up big numbers the past two games: 28 points, 10 rebounds, and 4 assists against Fort Wayne on Friday and 16 points, 4 rebounds, and 9 assists against Maine on Saturday. Curry who was called up last season for the LA Clippers and was drafted by the Chicago Bulls knows what it takes to be a pro.
