NBA runs its stats with SAP
Open

Introducing NBA Projections

In evaluating players in the NBA D-League, a key question is how they would perform in the NBA as they face tougher competition in a slower paced game while playing fewer minutes.

With the introduction of NBA Projections -- derived using insights from SAP and by running complex formulas through the Hana tool -- we can now estimate a player's production in the NBA based on how they have performed in its official minor league.

2014-15 Season Preview, By the Numbers

Let the number crunching begin.

Thanks to the NBA Development League's advanced stats platform -- launched at the start of the 2013-14 season -- we have more insight into the Top Prospects in the minor league than ever before.

From the advanced to the most basic, here are the numbers to know as you get set for the 14th season of the NBA D-League.

Rise of the Mad Ants

Long before their undefeated playoff run, Mad Ants coach Conner Henry sold his players on the doors winning a title could open. Their willingness to buy in resulted in what became a special season.

NBA Projections

NBA Projections: Who Can Help OKC?

The Oklahoma City Thunder have been hit with a ridiculous slew of injuries to superstars (Durant and Westbrook out at least a month) and role players alike. They are in desperate need of players to help stem the tide.

OKC can look to the D-League and use new NBA Projections to see how a player's D-League stats project to both an average NBA team and their team specifically. This tool, with insights from SAP and built on complex formulas processed through the HANA tool, is vital in evaluating potential call-ups. Read More | Introducing NBA Projections

2014-15 Season Preview

Key numbers to know as the 14th NBA D-League season tips off.

Players To Watch View All

The Prospect Watch will be updated once a week. Players must have played a game in the NBA D-League this season in order to be ranked.
NBA Experience

No. 1 Seth Curry

  • Erie
  • Guard

Bio

Got better as his rookie year went along and shined during Summer League. Has complete offensive arsenal but defense, athleticism remain question marks. View Stats
NBA Experience

No. 2 Earl Clark

  • Rio Grande Valley
  • Forward

Bio

Proven NBA player who’s still just 26. Potential reclamation project a la James Johnson and Shawne Williams. RGV is perfect place for him to develop missing piece (consistent 3PT shot). View Stats
NBA Experience

No. 3 Manny Harris

  • Los Angeles
  • Guard

Bio

Prolific scorer at NBA D-League level (31.8 ppg last season). Inconsistent outside shooter. Needs to focus on being role player rather than scorer first. View Stats
NBA Experience

No. 4 Elliot Williams

  • Delaware
  • Guard

Bio

Elite-level athlete with supreme leaping ability. Needs to refine outside shot to open up rest of offense. Potential defensive-minded combo guard off the bench. View Stats
NBA Experience

No. 5 Willie Reed

  • Grand Rapids
  • Forward/Center

Bio

Proven at NBA D-League level; simply waiting on NBA opportunity. Proficient rebounder who at the very least can crash the offensive glass at the next level. Athletic and mobile with an NBA frame; can run the floor and finish lobs. Offensive repertoire is limited beyond that, and still learning defensively. View Stats

Shawne Williams

Miami Heat

Williams has been hot for the Heat. The forward has been starting while teammates recover from injuries and has helped the Heat continue their winning ways as they sit at fourth in the East with a 5-3 record.

Williams shed 25 pounds during the offseason and has reached his lowest weight since college, which has helped contribute to the 28-year old's great start. He currently leads the Heat in in three-point percentage at 47.4 percent and is posting his highest career scoring average at 10.8 per game.

More Stats

Gerald Green

Phoenix Suns

Green is still en fuego. The guard scored 16 points in the fourth quarter to help the Suns defeat the Warriors on Sunday, 107-95, after entering the quarter down 79-71. He then went on to dominate the Nets on Wednesday night, scoring a season-high 28 points to help the Suns get the W after once being down by 19.

More Stats

Reggie Jackson

Oklahoma City Thunder

Jackson is definitely trying to make the most of his time as the starting point guard for the Thunder while Russell Westbrook is sidelined with an injury.

The former 66er spent the last week putting up numbers: A 29-point career-high night against the Bucks on Tuesday, followed by a win over Boston on Wednesday in which he posted 28 points - -14 of them in the third quarter -- and eight assists.

More Stats

Dennis Schroder

Atlanta Hawks

Schroder made some moves this past week as he put up a career-high 14 points in the Hawks' first road win of the season after defeating the Knicks under the lights in the Garden on Monday.

The German native is becoming more of a key contributor off the bench early this season and saw more minutes last week with 28 at New York and 20 (plus 11 points and five steals) at home in a win against the Knicks on Saturday.

More Stats

Lance Thomas

Oklahoma City Thunder

Lance Thomas is another alum getting the starting-gig with the Thunder. After going undrafted in the 2010 NBA Draft, he was selected by the Austin Toros in the NBA D-League Draft.

Thomas has started five games this season and had an awesome showing at Boston when he put up career highs of 13 rebounds and six assists.

More Stats

James Johnson

Toronto Raptors

Johnson's poster even startled Drake with this scary dunk over Philadelphia’s Brandon Davies. Oh, and he had another big one against the Bulls (plus 16 points, five rebounds, four steals and four blocks):
