33rd: - Reno Bighorns - James Florence, Mercer

Florence played with the Philadelphia 76ers in training camp, and was covered hence:

Last season, Florence averaged 17.7ppg, 3.1rpg and 4.6apg in his senior Mercer. That's the good bit. The bad bit is that he did that on percentages of 41%/32%/75%, alongside 3.7 turnovers in only 33 minutes per game, on an Atlantic Sun Conference team with few quality wins and who couldn't even beat East Tennessee State for the conference championship. While his assist totals were nice, and his scoring totals decent, Florence's CV looks fairly ordinary from an NBA perspective. Watching him in his senior season, these were the disjointed notes I managed:

highest scorer....high scorer....takes too many 3's + has lots of TO's.....gets to line a ton.....high steals......pushes ball.....fairly quick......smart....pump-fakes.


So, that's about all I've got there.


Florence did not appear in any preseason games for the Sixers, and nor was he chosen as an allocation player for their affiliate, the Springfield Armor. So now he's with Reno.
