Jeff Ayres, Jimmer Fredette the Top Picks in D-League Draft

Soobum Im/USA TODAY Sports

The NBA D-League conducted their draft on Saturday, and former San Antonio Spur Jeff Ayres went No. 1 to the Idaho Stampede. Another former Spur (although he didn’t play in any real games), Jimmer Fredette, went No. 2 to the Westchester Knicks.

Ayres spent the last two NBA seasons in San Antonio. He averaged 2.7 points and 2.3 rebounds in 7.5 minutes per game last year, and he didn’t get a new deal this summer.

Fredette was given a training camp contract by the Spurs, but he didn’t impress and was waived. The D-League would seem to be a good fit for him as he tries to get back into the Association.

Rounding out the top five in the draft were Perry Jones (Iowa Energy), Cartier Martin (Iowa Energy) and Rysheed Jordan (Delaware 87ers). Jones was waived by the Boston Celtics prior to the season. For the full draft results, check out the D-League website.
