    I remember Draftexpress being really high on Gary Forbes at one point.

    Yes, it's as if he peed in the gatorade at some point. There seems to be zero chance of seeing him with the org now.

    I dont get it..Why dont they even give Green a chance? He averaged 10 pts with 38% 3pt shooting in his last year at Boston. At least he's more proven in the NBA than the undrafted players.

    Who said they didn't give him a chance? Maybe he signed to play with another team or he doesn't want to play summer ball.

    I would assume he's waiting to get a contract offer for a team before he plays on their summer league.

    a la wiki
    Green spends most of his off time in Houston working out with former NBA head coach John Lucas. He is considering participating in the 2008 Las Vegas summer league.

    Glad AB plays to see how he will perform, too bad Landry is not there but at least Harris is there. In practice, he was a great 3pt shooter so please show it during the / a game !! Everybody can shoot an uncontested three in practice but it's very different in a real game so hopefully Harris can do it.

    i don't even know if this is true
    but according to wiki
    green Has part of his ring finger amputated.




    maybe this is the reason his game is lacking.

    I'll be following these two closely. It'll be interesting to see what they do.

    I wish Lanny well, he showed a lot of committment to a building coogs hoops program. I assume the best case for him is he plays well in the summer league and gets picked up somewhere else.
