    He needs time at the 3. Any time he can get there at any level will help. 4 months in Australia to get adjusted to the position, and then a short stint in the D-League sounds like a solid chance to develop a SF game.

    I really like the fact that the team knows one of their main goals for DeAndre is development. They want to win, but if they want to keep getting fringe NBA guys, development is key!

    "We will get a championship" - Daniels
    Myself (March 2014):
    The raptors are a tremendous young team and will win a championship in the following five years.

    The format was an unqualified success last year in Sydney with Perth Wildcats claiming the Cup and their star forward James Ennis winning the Borner Medal.

    Ennis subsequently went on to be in the league’s All Star Five and led Perth to the championship before being signed by the NBA’s Miami Heat.

    He has set a high bar for new Wildcats import DeAndre Daniels, who joins Perth after being drafted at 37 by the Toronto Raptors this year.

    “Everyone’s different, your players are different … He’s not James (Ennis), we don’t want him to be James we want him to be ‘Dre (DeAndre), and we want ‘Dre to give us what he’s good at,” Wildcats managing director Nick Marvin said.


    DeAndre shoots at the basket.
    Daniels is good at dunking and at 206cm, will present match-up problems for most of the NBL’s small forwards.

    Daniels underwent surgery today to remove a bonespur from his elbow:

    "Perth Wildcats star import DeAndre Daniels has undergone surgery to remove a small bone fragment from his right elbow.
    The injury was revealed during the Wildcats initial screening process of its new players.
    With the 2014/15 NBL season more than five weeks away, the club opted to have the joint repaired surgically rather than preventatively maintain the issue throughout the season.
    This will allow Daniels to fully develop as a player and give the Perth Wildcats the best possible chance of winning back-to-back Championships.
    The 22-year-old is expected to be discharged from hospital later today.
    Daniels will re-join his teammates in the next week and begin the rehabilitation process, which is expected to take four to six weeks."

    Will possibly miss the first few weeks of the season, but should still get lots of run in Perth.

    Didn't the Raptors have a "screening" (medicals) process?

    Hmm...to answer myself...maybe not since he has not technically signed a contract here.

    Since winning a championship at UConn two things have happened:

    1: he's worked out at a lot of per-draft workouts, combines & played at LVSL. he also worked out with Alex McKechnie and the other Raptors rookies. Finally, he's been practicing with the Wildcats since his arrival in Perth.
    2. At no point did anyone detect the bone spur until He signed with the Wildcats.

    I'm glad to hear that the injury isn't career threatening and was discovered early enough so as not to be aggravated. I wish him a speedy recovery, an injury-free season and a lot of success.

    More surgery for Wildcats import
    SHAYNE HOPE, EXCLUSIVE The West Australian

    Wildcats import DeAndre Daniels has had two bouts of surgery since arriving in Perth. Pic: Steve Ferrier/WA News
    High-profile Perth Wildcats import DeAndre Daniels has undergone surgery to halt significant deterioration in his eyesight.

    The NBA prospect is expected to make a gradual recovery during the next month and could return to the practice court as early as next week.

    Wildcats medical staff detected the impairment, caused by a condition known as keratoconus, during player screenings last month.

    Only Daniels' near vision has been affected, causing him trouble when reading and looking at screens in close range.

    The 22-year-old had surgery last week and his eyes are still extremely sensitive to light.

    But Wildcats managing director Nick Marvin said Daniels was expected to be available for the opening game of the NBL season, at home to New Zealand, on October 10.

    "It doesn't affect his basketball and, in fact, he didn't realise he had this condition because it didn't affect his play," Marvin said.

    "He's played a whole year at the University of Connecticut and won an NCAA championship with this situation.

    "He's been to 14 NBA clubs for try-outs, but the effect on his playing is so minimal that nobody has picked it up."

    Seems like a nice tidy stat line, especially knowing he his still just coming off surgery.

    Does Daniels remind anyone else as younger jordan Hamilton? Both shooters who have similar measurements and both were drafted by Masai.
