The Idaho Stampede have acquired former University of Maryland point guard John Gilchrist. The 6-3, 201 pound guard went undrafted in the 2005 NBA Draft, as an early entrant after his junior season. His first action in a Stampede uniform will be Friday, April 6 as Idaho takes on Colorado in Broomfield.
Gilchrist has had summer league stints with the Cleveland Cavaliers (2005) and Denver Nuggets (2006), but has played the past two seasons in Israel and France.
Gilchrist was brought in just in time for the playoffs, where the Stampede will be the top seed in the west.
