SG – 6’5, 185lbs – Born 30th July 1992
Having spent his first two professional seasons with the Santa Cruz Warriors, Drisdom then took a year away from the G-League to play in Japan second division with the Hiroshima Dragonflies, and then returned to the Memphis Hustle to begin this season (his rights having been selected by them in the 2017 Expansion Draft). However, he appeared in only five games and 44 minutes, scoring two points with eight rebounds, before being released in early December. Picked up in mid-January by Delaware, Drisdom managed a further nine games and 114 minutes, good for 36 points in that time, before being waived with a couple of weeks left to go in the year. Drisdom showed in his two seasons with Santa Cruz that although he was not a shooter at a key shooting position, he did have some defensive awareness about him. So long as you can get others to handle the ball and space the floor, you can use Drisdom to go to the glass, help defend around the perimeter, cut the baseline and drive to his right hand sometimes. In his time with the Warriors, he was a good G-League bench player to have. Not so much this season, but then, opportunities were very limited.
