Ray Parks’ chase for an elusive NBA stint continues as he was selected 25th overall by the Texas Legends in the 2015 NBA D-League Draft Sunday.
Parks went sixth in the second round to the Legends, the Dallas Mavericks’ D-League affiliate team.
The son of the late-great Ray Parks Sr. is a multi-awarded athlete in the amateur and collegiate ranks in the country. He has won the UAAP Most Valuable Player twice (Season 74, 75), the 2015 PBA D-League Aspirants Cup Most Valuable Player, and the 2015 Southeast Asian Basketball Association Most Valuable Player crowns.
In his collegiate career with the National University Bulldogs, Parks averaged 19.9 points, 7.4 rebounds, and and 3.7 assists in his three-year stay with the school.
Parks played for the Mavericks’ NBA Summer League team, and also worked out with the Utah Jazz and Atlanta Hawks prior to the 2015 NBA Draft where he went unselected.
Nguidjol was an intriguing prospect when he stepped foot with the struggling LPU squad in the 91st season of the NCAA. The 6’9 Cameroonian was the only bright spot from that team as he posted norms of 11.06 points, 8.65 rebounds, and 1.65 blocks in the 17 games he played in.
Coach Topex Robinson posted on Twitter that he is proud and honored to have coached Nguidjol.
Good luck on the next chapter of your promising basketball Career. It was an honor to have coached you Victor..
