NBA D-League Showcase, Day Two
January 16, 2008

Jelani McCoy had a nice showing in today’s opening game despite coming off the bench and playing only 26 minutes. McCoy has always been primarily a defensive player and today he displayed some nice offensive moves and smart decision making. He finished 6-for-6 from the field including a nice left-handed lay in late in the game where he switched hands on the way up. He has trouble establishing good position on the block, but does a good job getting after missed shots. He also showed off some nice interior passing skills with 5 assists.

McCoy is a good shot blocker and had two today but needs to be more aggressive on the defensive boards – he had only two defensive rebounds. He also needs to be stronger and do a better job of holding his ground.

McCoy is an NBA veteran who already saw some action this season with the Denver Nuggets. He’s a bit undersized, but the lack of size in the D-League and his previous NBA experience makes him a safe call-up candidate for an NBA team. Some NBA teams will refuse to deal with him because of past issues, but he could be a stop-gap for the remaining teams in the NBA.

2007-08 D-League Draft/Season Preview
November 1, 2007

A veteran with 7 years of NBA experience, McCoy is the type of center who can have a big impact in the D-League. He has spent the last few years playing in Italy, Ukraine, and Spain before coming back this summer and showing well on the Denver Nuggets summer league team. McCoy has a well-built body, good shot blocking instincts, and the physical attributes to be amongst the league leaders in rebounding. Throughout his career, he has been the type of player who always makes spectacular plays at times, but never fully translates his talent to the game, due to his average feel for the game. Still, the D-League will be a good venue for him to prove that he still has some basketball left in the tank, whether for high level overseas teams, or an NBA team looking for a 3rd string center.
