Pro City Update: 8.4.13 Pt. 2
Pro City Update 8.3.13, we have player updates, gleaned during the Nike D.C. Pro City summer league, quarterfinal playoffs.August 6, 2013 - In conjunction with
For more on Sunday's action, including a semifinal schedule change and rundowns of G'Town player's performances, see the Premium Court message board.
Robbie Jackson - 7'0", 265 pound center, Skills and Scrimmages - Indicated he's scheduled for a tournament in Dubai, where teams will scout him, hopefully producing a professional opportunity.
Jackson is an intriguing player; he has size, mobility and decent hands and footwork. All that adds up to a player than can stand out.
The issue is historically, he doesn't always focus on the court, is not a constant effort guy. If Jackson can do those things, he's certainly a pro somewhere on the planet.
Isaiah Swann - 6'3", 205 pound guard, A Wash - One of the best shooters to emerge from the DMV in recent decades, Swann is a bucket-getter, without a doubt. He will pull from 35 feet, or get to the rack.
Swann can defend, but hasn't done so consistently. Same for diming.
Last year he played in Turkey. This season, German Bundesliga franchise New Yorker Phantoms Braunschweig will have his services.
Folarin Campbell - 6'3", 190 pound guard/forward, A Wash - Campbell is a scorer that loves to pull up. He can drive, and it's getting better, but it's not his first default.
Must become a better all around guard going forward. Is smart.
Signed with Enel Brindisi, a first league Italian franchise.
Brian Leggett - 6'6", 225 pound forward, On Point - A graduate of Barton College, Leggett has played in the APBL (last season), and for the NBA D-League's Springfield Armor (2011). He's also spent time in Chile.
An athletic defender and rebounder, Leggett must become more comfortable away from the cup, including dribbling and shooting from distance.
This rugged player is still searching for pro work.
Ade Adetosoye - 6'1", 200 pound guard, Skills and Scrimmages - Just having graduated from UDC, Adetosoye is looking to be a professional, saying "I'm trying to go overseas". He's a powerful guard that loves to get into the lane, and will hit spot ups also.
Admittingly, he must become a more consistent passer to take his game to another level. Will defend and rebound.
Mike Creppy - 6'2", 190 pounds guard, Higher Level - A game manager, Creppie regularly also pulls up for jumpers - spot up and off the bounce from mid-range. Is a heady player.
Must continue concentrating on getting to the basket. To his credit, it's improved.
Played for Greece's Ilysiakos (Athens) last season. Options are open for this year.
Corey Allmond - 6'2", 175 pound guard, Premier Athletics - This guy is a dead eye shooter with impressive range and a quick release. Give him a sliver of daylight, he'll make you pay.
He's also advancing his skill set, as Allmond said "Everybody wants me to show I can play point guard". Not a pure lead guy, Corey can handle and find people, and seems more comfortable in doing so.
A D-League veteran of Fort Wayne ('10-'11) and Maine's training camp last year, Allmond will know soon whether he returns to that league, or travels "this year to the Ukraine, Turkey, or Hungary".
Bobby Maze, 6'3", 175 pound guard, Jamal Board All-Stars - This combo guard is headed to Hoverla (Ukraine)
