Former Arizona shooting ace Salim Stoudamire has a new address in the NBA’s D-League.
The 6-foot-1 guard played nine games with the Idaho Stampede, which is where he had wanted to play, reportedly working out a pre-draft agreement to play for the franchise. His father, Charles, lives in Boise.
The Stampede selected Stoudamire, 28, with the last pick in the first round of this season’s draft.
He averaged 13.2 points and 3.7 assists for Idaho before being acquired by the Reno Bighorn this week. Stoudamire had 15 points and five assists in his first game for Reno, but had only three points in 13 minutes in his second game.
Stoudamire averaged 8.0 points for the Atlanta Hawks in 157 games spanning three seasons, 2005-06 to 2007-08. A groin injury contributed to his two years out of the league.
