    Well a week ago they were saying he would be going to the NDBL since they have Billups and Hunter at the PG spot. But both talked very high on Wil and said he was learning fast and had some skills so if he's impressing it may be tough to not keep him on the active roster. But also as a 3rd PG how much time would he get? He might develop quicker as a NDBL starter than only getting garbage minutes. Hunter has been in the league for awhile so I would guess Blalock is viewed as a project to eventually replace him as the backup PG.

    Re: Blalock

    He's got a one year guaranteed contract to show what he can do. So he's not going to Europe

    Re: Blalock

    NDBL is not Europe, they play in US cities. It's sort of like AAA basketball. Don't be shocked if he starts the season with Detroit's affliated NDBL team. It would not be the end of the world for him either if he went there. He'll probably be a starter on the team and get to play against guys who have already been in the NBA, are rookies like him, or are guys that are borderline NBA talent. The NDBL is probably better than playing overseas and a lot of NBA teams are starting to use it to develop some of their project draft picks that would get more minutes to develop there instead of sitting on the end of an NBA bench.

    I'd really like to see the NBA utilize the NBDL more. It would be great if every team could have its own affiliate, much like the AAA baseball leagues. I think that it would only be a good thing for the NBA.

    He will get his shot prior to mid-season. He has a few things to learn. In fact IMO he did well getting away from Stinson.

    Speaking of Stinson where is he at? Has he gotten on with any team at all? Anybody know if Fizer is with anybody this year? Last year he was MVP of the NBDL so I hope he gets a chance some where.

    Re: Blalock

    Des Moines has been rumored to be getting an NBDL team in the future.

    I don't know how well DM would support it (How are the Stars doing?), but I think it'd be pretty cool.

    Re: Blalock

    Isn't the Detroit NBDL team in Sioux City? I am pretty sure I read that if Will goes to NBDL he will be in Sioux City.
