    Seems like a nice fit for the Vipers backcourt. Should pair pretty well with Demetrius Jackson. . . Here's the remainder of the training camp roster per the Viper's website.

    Danuel House Forward 6’7 215 Texas A&M
    Isaiah Hartenstein Forward 7’0 250 Germany
    Demetrius Jackson Guard 6’1 201 Notre Dame
    Craig Victor II Forward 6’9 235 LSU
    Alvin Ellis Guard 6’4 210 Michigan State
    Julien Lewis Guard 6’4 195 Fresno State
    Chris Walker Forward 6’10 220 Florida
    Shane Richards Guard 6’5 195 Manhattan College
    Kevin Hardy Guard 6’2 181 McNeese State University
    Georginho De Paula Guard 6’6 194 Brazil
    Kyle Davis Guard 6’0 165 Dayton
    RJ Hunter Guard 6’5 185 Georgia State
    Tony Wroten Guard 6’6 205 Washington
    Devon Bookert Guard 6’3 181 Florida State
    Rodney Cooper Guard 6’6 220 Alabama

    I'm curious to see how House will do. Hartenstein as well.
