Graham heating up in D-League action

Troy Daniels made the jump from Rio Grande Valley Viper to NBA sharpshooter. Briante Weber wasted no time before being called up from the Souix Falls Skyforce to the Memphis Grizzlies. If Treveon Graham keeps his current pace, he might not be far behind.

Graham is having a red-hot March with the Idaho Stampede, averaging 26.2 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.2 assists while hitting 55.8% of his attempts, all well above his career average since joining the team this past November.

After seeing his minutes decline the past four months, Graham is averaging a career-high 39.9 over his six March contests and has rewarded his team for their confidence in him. Graham’s 109.5 offensive rating this month is his best yet, as is his 10.2% assists percentage, 18.7% defensive rebounding percentage, 60.1% effective field goal percentage and 64.3% true shooting percentage.

It may have taken the Freight Train a while to gain momentum, but now that he’s running at full speed, might be hard to stop.
