40th: - Utah Flash - D'Andre Bell, Georgia Tech

Bell's game is quite similar to that of L.D. Williams. He too is a defensive specialist shooting guard whose offense consists of little more than the mid-range jumpshot. The reason why Bell slipped so far below Williams is that he doesn't have Williams's athleticism, and the production that it brings.

Bell played for the Heat in summer league, about which I wrote this about him, in a post that went unpublished:

Bell, a 6'6 guard out of Georgia Tech, was a good college player who won't play at the next level. He's a good defensive player with a lefty mid-range jumpshot; that's about it. The shot lacks range, and Bell is not a ball handler. He cannot slash or run any offense, and isn't particularly quick, which doesn't do much for his defensive potential at the higher levels of the game.

In that tournament, Bell totalled 8 points and 8 fouls in 38 minutes. Bell also hasn't had much luck in recent years; he was trapped in a burning building in May, and redshirted the 2008-09 season due to surgery on a career-threatening spinal injury that could have caused paralysis. Nevertheless, despite it all, he's here now, in the relatively prolific climbs of the D-League draft.
