D-League Draft and Training Camp Rosters Complete

November 1, 2007 - NBA G League (G League) News Release

NEW YORK, NOV. 1, 2007 - The Colorado 14ers used the first overall selection in the 2007 D-League draft to choose five-year NBA veteran Eddie Gill who's played with New Jersey, Memphis, Portland and Indiana. "It's an absolute honor to be the first overall selection in the draft," said Gill. "I think it's going to be a great opportunity and a great fit for me as well as the Colorado 14ers."

Carlos Powell who played with Golden State's summer League squad and was cut by the Warriors during the preseason was the second pick in the draft, taken by the Dakota Wizards.

The Albuquerque Thunderbirds then selected 34 year-old Darvin Ham, a veteran of eight NBA seasons and a member of the 2004 championship winning Detroit Pistons. Jelani McCoy who played for the Los Angeles Lakers during the 2001-02 season returns to L.A. as the D-Fenders selected the seven year NBA veteran with the eighth overall pick.

Former NBA players Jamison Brewer, Adam Harrington and Robert Whaley all were tabbed in the second round.

The ten players selected by each team in the draft will combine with the six to seven players already assigned via allocation, local tryouts or players returning from the previous season. The rosters for each of the 14 teams will be cut to 12 players on Nov. 14. Final 10-man rosters must be set by Nov. 21.

Each team will play one preseason game between Nov. 15 and 20 before the D-League regular season tips off on Nov. 23.

The first round selections were:
1) Colorado 14ers - Eddie Gill
2) Dakota Wizards - Carlos Powell
3) Albuquerque Thunderbirds - Darvin Ham
