Dyson played for the Cavaliers in summer league, at which time I wrote this about him:

There was a time when averaging 20/5/5 at UConn meant a guarantee to be drafted. Not so for Dyson. For all the scoring numbers, Dyson is far from a complete scorer; for all the assist numbers, Dyson is far from a point guard. And at 6'3, he'll struggle to be a shooting guard as well.

Much of his production comes from the fast break, where he is unbelievably good. He can snake his way to the basket with blistering speed, and finish with athleticism despite his small size. In the half court, however, he can't get to the basket as readily. This is due in no small part to his jumpshot, which doesn't really exist. And while Dyson has the athletic tools for perimeter defense, he lapses.

If he goes to the D-League - and he should, because he's going to be on the cusp of a call-up - then he could put up similar numbers to that. But without a jumpshot, his ridiculously tremendous upside potential is limited.


That last point is the reason why he is here. Dyson is not quite good enough to play in the NBA, but he could be one day if he hones that jumper slightly. For that reason, he needs to be in the D-League; for that reason, Oklahoma City want him on THEIR D-League team. That's why they've signed Dyson, because now, when he is waived, he will be allocated to the Thunder's self-owned affiliate, the Tulsa 66ers. From there, Dyson is free to be called up by any NBA team, not just the Thunder; however, Oklahoma City will have the inside track on his progress. It's all deliberate.
