I read today that the Charlotte Bobcats waived Jahidi White (you may remember his days at Georgetown) and signed point guard Cory Alexander from Roanoke of the developmental league.

Why would I bring this up? Bremerton 1999 graduate Miah Davis was the backup point guard on the Roanoke Dazzle's roster. Perhaps this would free up more minutes for the player that ran the point for Bremerton's 5th-place finish in the 3A state tournament in 1999.

I checked, and sure enough, Miah seems to be getting his chance. He played 41 minutes in a 97-93 loss to the Huntsville Flight on Saturday. He scored 12 points, pulled down 4 rebounds, and dished off 8 assists. He shot 3-for-8 from the field, and was 6-for-6 from the line. He recorded a steal, but the four turnovers aren't too nice. That hopefully will shore itself up.

A surprise in the boxscore was the revelation that Haywoode Workman is an NBDL official. Surprise! I never thought I'd see that name again.

The Dazzle play the Columbus Riverdragons tomorrow, so we'll see what Miah does then. The NBDL plays through the beginning of April. Hopefully Miah can play himself into the NBA with a 10-day contract at the least by the end of the year. It'd be something.
