Fuquan Edwin and Brian Oliver selected in D-League draft

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Both Seton Hall graduates that were eligible for yesterday's NBA D-League Draft were selected by affiliates of NBA franchises. Fuquan Edwin was chosen 15th overall by the Sioux Falls Skyforce (Miami Heat), while Brian Oliver was selected in the fourth round by the Reno Bighorns (Sacramento Kings).

Sioux Falls, who recently traded former Seton Hall point guard Andre Barrett to the Westchester Knicks, also drafted Ashton Gibbs, the older brother of Sterling, yesterday. After strangely being signed and then waived less than 12 hours later by the San Antonio Spurs last week, it looks likely that Edwin will be a mainstay for Sioux Falls and not the Austin Toros this season. Whether he gets called up to the Heat is another question.

As for Brian Oliver, his next step is making the Reno Bighorns' roster. Their training camp pool of 17 players must be trimmed down to 10, according to NBA.com:

NBA D-League rosters must consist of 10 NBA D-League players, but may not exceed a total of 12 players, including NBA assignments. If more than two NBA players are assigned at once, a team must reduce its roster to avoid going over 12 players.

Teams are limited to 12 roster moves a season, although additional moves can be gained in certain situations, such as a player being signed by an NBA team or leaving to play in Europe. Training camp roster cuts do not count against the 12 moves.
