Yesterday the Memphis Grizzles assigned their 2009 First Round Draft Pick Hasheem Thabeet to the D-League. According to league sources the Grizzles even attempted to trade Thabeet and OJ Mayo to Golden State for Monta Ellis before the trade deadline but the trade fell through. This seems to be another situation of a team picking an undeserving player to high in the draft; we all remember what happened with Darko Milicic.
Currently you can pick up Thabeet autographs or relics for well under $10, a sad situation when you consider he was the 2009 #2 Draft Pick. How many more teams are going to pass on Chris Paul or Dwyane Wade to draft a project?
