Here’s the guys who did not.
Black, 22, went undrafted in 2018 after a four-year career with the Fighting Illini. He was then picked up by the 905 with the 25th pick in the G League Draft two weeks ago. The 6’7” Black averaged 15.3 points and 5.2 rebounds per game in his senior season with Illinois.
Scott, 24, was another selection for the 905 at the G League Draft, though he was later in the third round. Out of Purdue Fort Wayne, the 6’1” guard averaged 22.6 points per game in his senior year.
Savage, 25, was a draft selection for the 905 in 2017. Picked 26th overall, the 6’3” guard was the only draft pick who made the team in 2017-18 and averaged 3.4 points on 32.8% shooting in 31 appearances and 12 starts. This time last year, our Cole Shelton did an interview with Savage about joining the team.
Washington, 25, is a 7’1” centre who also spent last season with the 905. In 25 games, including five starts, he averaged 1.9 points on 41.5% shooting, along with 1.2 rebounds and 0.4 blocks. A graduate of Wake Forest, he was undrafted in 2017 at the NBA level before joining the G League.
The 905 open their season on Saturday at Paramount Fine Foods Centre against the Delaware Blue Coats, with a scheduled tip of 2 p.m.
