Iowa Energy and the D-League Draft

CHICAGO — The NBA may still be locked out but that isn’t stopping the next potential class of players from making news. The NBA Developmental League held it’s annual draft tonight and after all 8 rounds were complete, 8 players now have a shot at potentially wearing a Bulls uniform.

But if at the very least, they join a championship team in the Iowa Energy who won last season’s NBADL Championship game. It was a huge deal for the fans of the Energy and the players and sent the D-League stars into the murky offseason with more than their Chicago Bulls counterparts had.

But when looking at this next season, the Energy have added eight new players with a lot of potential. They may not ever actually wear a Bulls uniform or play in the BA but after the magical season the Energy had last year, you may not have to be an NBA’er to have an extraordinary season.

Over the next few days we will be breaking down the Iowa Energy’s eight draft picks. Here is the final draft list for the 2011 NBA D-League Draft for the Energy.
