Yeah. We don't have a lot of NBA playing experience, but all of these guys are here to coach, which is precisely what a team filled with youngsters who left school early need. They all played in college. And here are their stats.

Yes, I have no clue how many rebounds a game Brad got in college. But yeah, we do have a few people who have at least played in college. No NBA players, but most of these guys have coached with some great teams in the NBA. So, perhaps that will serve us better in the future.
