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

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 Quincy Miller

  • Reno
  • Forward

Bio

High-upside small forward who at 22 is still learning the game. Rare combination of size (6-10, 220) and deep shooting range. Struggled offensively in first two NBA seasons. With 7-3 wingspan, could turn into two-way weapon as combo forward. View Stats

No. 2 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. 3 Elliot Williams

  • Santa Cruz
  • 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. 4 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. 5 Jordan Hamilton

  • Iowa
  • Guard/Forward

Bio

Gifted scorer who has a nose for rebounds and has proven it in NBA (15.6 points, 7.5 rebounds per 36 minutes). Game is too one-and dimensional does not have a defensive mindset. Has the tools to transition into a stretch-4 and should thrive in small-ball league. View Stats

Donald Sloan

Indiana Pacers

Donald Sloan reenergized the Pacers and led them to a big win over the Mavs when he scored 29 points (10/14 FG), including three threes, with five assists in 38 minutes of playing time. "I was always told, 'You're going to get a legitimate opportunity to show what you can do,'" he said after the game.

More Stats

Danny Green

San Antonio Spurs

Danny Green has been silently crushing it as the Spurs going on their merry way winning games. So far this season, he's averaging career highs in minutes (29.4), points (11.2) and rebounds (3.6).

More Stats

Robert Covington

Philadelphia 76ers

The first pick in the 2014 NBA D-League draft scored a career-high 14 points in just 14 minutes of play for the Sixers on Saturday against the Knicks. He also shot 4-of-4 (not surprising) from three and grabbed four rebounds.

More Stats

Donatas Motiejunas

Houston Rockets

Motiejunas had a nice week for the Rockets as he filled in as a start for the injured Dwight Howard. He grabbed a double-double (14 points, 12 rebounds) in a win over the Mavs and went for another 13 points in a win over the Knicks. So far this season, he's started nine games and averaged 23.9 minutes, 6.6 points and 5.8 rebounds.
