One Terp in the NBA Summer League: Terrell Stoglin

Looks like I was wrong yesterday. Though he isn't listed on the initial roster that the team released, it appears that Terrell Stoglin (2010-12), the newest member of our Where-Are-They-Now family, is playing for the Toronto Raptors' summer league team after being passed over in the NBA Draft.

Here's the Bleacher Report's outlook on Stoglin:
There is no doubt the man can score from anywhere on the court. But beyond his blaring off-court red flags (engaging in a Twitter war with your coach never solves anything), Stoglin's main impediment to his success in the NBA is that he is undersized.

He can put the ball on the floor and create shots for himself, but will too often be overwhelmed by more athletic and physical NBA defenders. Stoglin has the talent, but it looks like he is a candidate to take his attitude and his game overseas.

The Diamondback's Terrapin Trail blog also followed up with a story about Stoglin's struggles this summer:
Stoglin has been given that opportunity. His game, though, has done very little talking.

Through four games with the Toronto Raptors in the Las Vegas Summer League, Stoglin has totaled just 11 points, three rebounds, two assists and two turnovers. His 24 minutes played are the lowest of any member of the team by more than 2o minutes. [...]

And with a roster already loaded with guards, Stoglin will have to show a marked improvement if he wants to see his pro career begin with the Raptors.
