The NBA D-League is ever expanding, with 22 teams set to open play this month, including the relocated Salt Lake City Stars.
Training camp rosters were finalized earlier this week, and there are seven players with local ties who will be aiming to make a squad.
Here's the rundown, in alphabetical order.
The former BYU Cougar and the NCAA’s career triple-double leader signed a contract with the Dallas Mavericks in the summer and will play for their D-League team after getting waived just before the NBA season began.
The 7-foot-3 center who was part of the Utah Runnin’ Utes’ basketball program from 2006-2012 has joined the D-Fenders on a tryout basis. After getting waived by the Delaware 87ers of the D-League last year, he did not play professionally.
Having been called up to the NBA from the D-League’s Bakersfield Jam, Millsap appeared in 67 games for the Utah Jazz over the course of two seasons before getting waived in January of this year. He averaged 4.2 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 16.4 minutes per game. After getting waived, he finished the season in Israel with powerhouse Maccabi Tel Aviv.
A Runnin’ Ute during the 2010-2011 season, O’Brien finished his collegiate career at San Diego State and has been a fixture in the Jazz organization over the last 16 months. He played for their 2015 summer league team, got a training camp invite and was called up from the Idaho Stampede (now the Stars) in January. He was with the Milwaukee Bucks during this year’s training camp.
A freshman on the University of Utah squad that went 6-25 during the 2011-2012 season, Odunsi had three other stops during his collegiate career, finishing at Houston Baptist University. He was drafted by the Charge on Sunday.
Also a freshman on the Runnin’ Utes’ 2011-2012 team, Storey had two stops after transferring from Utah, finishing his collegiate career at Morehead State. He’ll join the Swarm on a tryout basis.
One of the mainstays at Utah over the last four years, Tucker turned an open tryout with the Stars in September into a training camp invitation. As a senior for the Runnin’ Utes last season, he averaged 5.4 points per game.
