Active U of L NBA-ers:
- Earl Clark- Orlando Magic, the back-up small forward is seeing quality minutes for defensive purposes. Clark is receiving more time due to the roster shakeup with Dwight Howard being out with a back injury. Even with the increased minutes, the actual production has been spotty for Earl this week, 1.7 points per game and was held scoreless twice in four games. The fourth year forward is averaging 2ppg and 2.5rpg this season.
- Terrance Williams- Sacramento Kings, the newly signed point-forward is currently being used as the 6th man. Last Sunday T-will scored a season high 21 points in a 87-104 loss to Houston. He is averaging 12.3 points this week in four games. With no playoffs in sight, Williams is highly motivated to impress the Kings management as he is headed into free agency in the offseason with only a couple more games left to showcase to his new team. T-will is averaging 7.4ppg, 2apg & 3.6rpg this season.
- Francisco Garcia- Sacramento Kings, the veteran reserve's role for the season has consisted of being a dead eye three point specialist and vocal team leader. Francisco has missed the last the four games with a concussion. He last played on 4/7 in a 94-109 loss against the Clippers where he scored 13 points. Garcia is expected to return sometime next week. Francisco is averaging 5 points and 2 rebounds this season.
- Samardo Samuels- Cleveland Cavalier, primarily used to spell Tristan Thompson minutes at the four spot. Samardo has seen inconsistent minutes all season due to the Cavs having a loaded frontcourt. Samardo has put up 5.6 points per game this week in 5 outings. The Cavs suffered two losses but Samuels had great individual success against Indiana this week. In two back to back matchups, he posted 13 points in game 1 followed by a double-double, 10 points & 10 rebounds in game 2. In 46 games this season, Samardo is averaging 4.8 ppg and 3.2 rpg.
