NBA D-LEAGUE: Red Claws busy as draft nears
By Kevin Thomas

PORTLAND -- On the eve of today's NBA D-League draft, the Maine Red Claws busied themselves by trading for more picks, while also announcing eight other players that will attend training camp, which begins Nov. 12.

Those eight, which include three former Red Claws, two players cut from the Celtics in the preseason and University of Maine guard Raheem Singleton, will be joined by the eight players drafted today.

Maine has the fourth overall pick among 16 teams in the first round, and seven more picks in the remaining seven rounds (no picks in the second, two in the fourth).

Red Claws reach out for NBA experience
Former Butler University standout and Washington Wizards castoff Shelvin Mack is Maine's first pick.

NBA experience.

The Maine Red Claws chose Mack with the fourth pick in the first round of the NBA D League draft Friday night. He was one of seven players drafted by Maine.

Mack, 22, was a rookie backup in the NBA last year with the Washington Wizards. The Wizards had drafted him after a stellar freshman season at Butler.
