I saw a passing reference in another thread but no details.


Did he ever get paid for his misadventure in Greece a couple of years ago? Sounds like it was a screwy situation. Hopefully he got some decent hummus out of the experience.

An interview with Matt at the D-Fenders training camp. It was pretty amazing to realize how many Zags have been part of the Lakers - Ronny, Adam, Rob, Elias, and now Matt!

Matt's actually now with the 76ers D League affiliate in Delaware. He wasn't really getting any meaningful minutes with the Defenders, but is now playing 30ish minutes per game and putting up some nice numbers. FYI, there's a D League channel on youtube where you can watch NBDL games.

I caught a game on cable last week... the D league is hard to watch because they are all trying to impress.....but damn, he is a terrific player, as always a good shooter but a great floor game... one of my favorite Zags like JP and Harris...

General "Mad Anthony" Wayne was a Revolutionary War General and later led the US Army against an Indian Confederacy where he won the decisive Battle Of Fallen Timbers. Along the way he founded Fort Wayne.


No word on well he could shoot the 3.

Ft. Wayne has a long professional BB history. It was originally the home of the Pistons. The team was owned by Fred Zollner who manufactured Pistons. Moved the team to Detroit in 1957 (same year the Lions last won an NFL title).

I caught his recent game against the Maine Red Claws. He was a non-factor in the game. He is too slow to create much offense for himself against those types of athletes. He was 0-7 from the field with a couple of turnovers. He finished with two points off of a pair of made free throws, two rebounds, and one assist in 25 minutes of play.

Bouldin (6-5, 215) averaged 14.7 points and 3.8 assists in 34 minutes per game with the Sevens. He appeared in 23 contests, including 18 starts.

Sounds like he's getting some good run with the Mad Ants: http://www.news-sentinel.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20140222/SPORTS/140229899
Apparently he's playing some 2 and backing up their point guard. The story says Ron Howard is their point guard. I feel like Richie Cunningham from "Happy Days" should be too old to be playing in the D-League, but what do I know?

This article says some nice things about Bouldin and gave some insight into the life of the d-league.

Nice.


Bouldin, who’s playing in Delaware to prove to scouts he can compete in the NBA after four surgeries on his left foot in recent years, shows why it’s been tough for Baker to take him off the floor. He dishes out nine assists while quietly pouring in 18 points and committing only two turnovers. At Gonzaga, Bouldin served as the Bulldogs’ primary scorer, but on the Sevens, he’s trying to reinvent himself as a point guard. He plays with poise and knows how to change speeds. If his shooting touch doesn’t desert him, it’s hard to imagine Bouldin not getting a look somewhere.
...
I meet Matt Bouldin in the bleachers behind the basket to talk about his D-League experience. Before we start talking, two kids waddle up to him, signed memorabilia in hand, and ask him, “Where’s the Crime Stopper?” A few players, still in uniform, linger on the court.

“I’d say three or four or five years ago, I wouldn’t think the D-League got any respect,” Bouldin says. “Nobody in Europe cared about it, the majority of the NBA teams didn’t care about it. It was one of those leagues where you were like, why would anybody play here? The respect it’s getting now … I know a bunch of European teams watch almost every game. They’re interested in a lot of players here. It’s just a different world in [today's] D-League. But there’s a lot of upside to it.”

The last time I heard from Bouldin, he was on a bus to Indiana after being traded to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants for a second-round pick in this year’s D-League draft. “Fort Wayne had wanted me since Reno,” Bouldin texted, referring to the annual D-League Showcase, held in Nevada. “It is what it is.”

Matt invited to attend NBA D-League Mini-camp Monday and Tuesday:

New York, May 8, 2014 -- The NBA Development League will hold its fifth-annual Elite Mini Camp on Monday, May 12 and Tuesday May 13 at Chicago’s Quest Multisports gym. The camp features top 2013-14 NBA D-League prospects and gives players an opportunity to display their skills and be evaluated by NBA team personnel in advance of NBA Summer Leagues and 2014 training camps.

The two-day event features both drill work and full-court games for players to comprehensively showcase their talents. NBA front office executives and scouts are expected to be on hand to evaluate the talent, as NBA teams look to fill their rosters for Summer League and training camp.

This year’s 37-player event includes six players with NBA experience, including Shane Edwards (Canton Charge), Jeff Foote (Springfield Armor), Terrell Harris (Bakersfield Jam), Dennis Horner (Bakersfield Jam), DeQuan Jones (Reno Bighorns) and DeAndre Liggins (Sioux Falls Skyforce). Matt Bouldin (Fort Wayne Mad Ants) will also attend the camp having recently been crowned an NBA D-League Champion with the Mad Ants.

Twenty-seven athletes who participated in last year’s NBA D-League Elite Mini Camp went on to play in NBA Summer League in Orlando or Las Vegas, while eight of those players earned NBA training camp invitations. Tour’e Murry and Hollis Thompson, who both played at the 2013 NBA D-League Elite Mini Camp, spent the entire 2013-14 season in the NBA with the New York Knicks and Philadelphia 76ers, respectively.

Matt slated to work out for Orlando, per this story (http://prestointhepaint.com/2014/06/17/orlando-magic-host-seven-workouts-according-reports/):

Orlando Magic host seven for workouts, according to reports

With most of the focus on the rapidly approaching NBA Draft, the Orlando Magic hosted a workout for seven free agents on Tuesday. Amongst the reported group of players is former Duke guard Seth Curry, who’s the brother of Golden State Warriors star point guard Stephen Curry. Michael Scotto of SheridanHoops reported that CJ Leslie, Josh Selby, Matt Bouldin, Scott Suggs and Josh Magette would be joining Curry. Sea Dubs Central, a site that covers the Warriors NBA D-League affiliate, had previously reported that Cam Jones would be working out for the team as well.
Undrafted out of Gonzaga in 2010, Bouldin has bounced around the D-League, while also spending a few seasons overseas. Bouldin, a 6’5” shooting guard, averaged 12.7 points per game his four years at Gonzaga. In 55 D-League games for four teams, Gouldin has averaged 11.9 points on 42.3 percent shooting.
