Nate Darling Signs Two-Way Contract with NO Pelicans
A few mock drafts had Nate as a late second round pick, but he went undrafted. Probably the preferable option for second rounders anyway since you sign with the team of your choice. On the two way, Nate can float between the NBA and G-league.

Lee, Darling, and Norton have all made G-league rosters at this point.

He was rated way higher than All World 5 Star High School kid (Auburn) Austin Wiley too

I can't believe he was that highly regarded. He must've blown up when he left us - I admittedly did not follow him after he left UAB.

Averaged 21 PPG up there, last season. Also, everyone knows you don’t have to play a bit of defense to make it in the league.

A year ago Delaware beat UTSA on a neutral court 91-79. Darling went off for 37 points, outperforming Jhivvan Jackson and Keaton Wallace. Darling was 8-10 from 3-point land.

That’s crazy. He just didn’t seem that good to me at UAB. Seemed overmatched at our level..

Just another thing that shows what a poor coach Ehsan was..

I think the blame should be spread around to the assistants too.

He shot 41% from three for us his last season, and had multiple 20 point games. He should have been taking 10 three pointers a game at that point.

RE: Nate Darling Signs Two-Way Contract with NO Pelicans
He left UAB specifically because of our play style, when it was very obvious he should have been taking way more threes for us. I probably complained in every game thread how we never ran screens designed to get him open looks. When he made threes, it was usually out of the flow of the normal offense.

I doubt Darling sticks in the NBA, but he fits the “Duncan Robinson” mold that teams are trying to stockpile at the end of their bench.

He was outstanding in high school, he was outstanding in international play, he was outstanding at Delaware. It wasn't Darling that was overmatched in Birmingham.
