- Trey Gilder - Gilder played briefly for the Grizzlies last season, then returned to the D-League and put up an almost identical season to his one in 2008-09. Gilder's certainly athletic enough for the NBA, and has improved on his mistakes over the years; however, rather than continuing to develop an outside shot, Gilder has been using it less than ever. And he also doesn't play defense as well as a man of his athleticism should.

Gilder, too, has been previously covered. He was playing with the Magic at the Orlando summer pro league, and was thus covered here. He played in only two games for them, however, totalling 2 points and 3 assists.

Trey Gilder was fourth in the NBA in PER last year. If I give that fact the context it needs, it'll lose its lustre, so I won't. When not in the NBA, Gilder was back in the D-League, spending all but 9 games of the season with the Maine Red Claws. He averaged 14.3 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.2 blocks per game, doing a little of everything except for jumpshooting. The lanky bugger is developing well as a role player; unfortunately, outside of his athleticism, there is nothing exceptional to his game. And in the NBA, basically everyone is an athlete.

- Trey Gilder
Gilder signed with the Grizzlies in training camp to a $25,000 guaranteed contract, and stuck around for a couple of weeks before being waived. He appeared in two games, and as a result he is now tied for the league lead in true shooting percentage (1.000%, along with Ryan Bowen) and is fourth in PER (31.2; behind Paul Davis, Bowen and LeBron James, in that order). It's not much of a boast in a five minute sample size, but I'd totally claim it.
Back in the D-League, Gilder is averaging 14.3 [points] and 5.6 rebounds for the Maine Red Claws, numbers almost identical to last year's.
