Laron Profit was the finals MVP for Libertad of the Argentinian A League last season and according to this he only played in the preseason this year. (see bottom).

He's listed as a free agent here:

The Libertad Sunchales team website lists Profit as a former player.

I saw that Gilchrist was drafted by Colorado in the NBDL draft last fall, but as far as I can tell, he never played in a game for them.

By the way, they waived Francis yesterday (1/28).
