Jamaal Tinsley Aiming NBA Comeback, Enters NBDL Draft

The once starting point guard for the Indiana Pacers is looking to get back to the NBA. And if that means working his way up from the D-League to get there, that’s what he’s planning to do. From Yahoo Sports: “Jamaal Tinlsey hopes to return to the NBA, and he wants to use the Development League to help his efforts. Tinsley has sent in the needed paperwork to enter Thursday’s NBA Development League draft, sources told Yahoo! Sports. Tinsley, 33, averaged 9.8 points and 6.6 assists per game through eight NBA seasons while starting 366 of 436 career regular-season games. He last played in the NBA with the Memphis Grizzlies during the 2009-10 season. The deadline to enter the D-League draft is Tuesday. The Los Angeles D-Fenders have the first pick in Thursday’s draft. Top pick candidates include former NBA center Jamal Sampson, former Villanova forward Curtis Sumpter, former DePaul forward Mac Koshawl, former Dayton forward Chris Wright and former Texas A&M-Corpus Christi center Chris Daniels. The Reno Bighorns selected former NBA forward Nick Fazekas with the top pick in last year’s D-League draft.’”

    @SwissArmyKnife5 thats whats sad about the nba, rich aholes punishing basketball players because of attitude, michael jordan was ran out of chicago by jerry krause, if the players don’t unite and form their own league they will never be treated fairly by the nba, thats a fact, david stern and the wealthy owners are aholes, none of these aholes have the right to keep anyone from playing basketball based on attitude

    He’s a brooklyn boy. Goin Nets to back up DWill.

    He got bounced because he was on that BK bullish.Only so many times you can get in trouble at the club.When your equipment manager gets shot with a bullet meant for you,3rd time dodging bullets in about a year and a half. I think any club would have a problem with that.If he could repeatedly get in trouble in Indiana dont let him near a big city like LA or Miami too many clubs.Although I always want to see my Brooklyn brethren do well.I doubt it.E no guarantee DWill is staying in BK.

    @sunshine let’s see… you’re at your job and you keep giving bad attitude to the customers and to your co-workers… What do you think your boss would do? It’s the same for NBA players

    I wasn’t aware he ever left. I hope the Celtics give him a look if they don’t pick up AI.
