Default Sign Mustafa Shakur!?

Quote:
It has been a while since we've checked in on Shakur, who has made notable strides since leaving Arizona. After stints with Prokom Trefl of Poland and the Euroleague and TAU Ceramica (now Caja Laboral), Shakur exploded in the NBADL last season, showing some new wrinkles to his skill set that make him a much more viable NBA talent. He's a considerably better shooter than he was as a collegian, improving his mechanics and forcing teams to respect his range in catch and shoot situations. His improved range and confidence off the dribble have opened up his floor game. Showing a knack for playing with pace, seeing the floor better, and making much better decisions with the ball than he did in the past thanks to his increased maturity level and basketball IQ, Shakur is a clear-cut NBA caliber player when you factor in his outstanding physical tools.

I hope we give this guy a look. He looks great, it probably wouldn't hurt to sign him as a 3rd string PG and see where it goes.

Was in the NBA for a bit last season but didn't really get him... He pwned the Dleague though.

maybe, but this sounds like a signing that happens after the rest of the roster is pretty much set
it would serve better to get all the FA and major trades completed before signing D league type players
