2014 NBA Draft Prospects from the NBA D-League: Norvel Pelle
|Birthdate:||February 3, 1993|
|Birthplace:||Long Beach, Calif.|
Former top-ranked center in the recruiting Class of 2011; decommitted from St. Johnís and signed with Iona but was ruled academically ineligible to play. Participated in 2013 NBA Draft Combine in Chicago last May. Extremely gifted athletically but viewed as a long-term project as an NBA prospect. With Sevens, blocked an impressive 3.8 shots per 36 minutes but committed nearly 8 fouls per 36 minutes. Nearly 7-3 wingspan and 34.5-inch vertical allows him to finish lobs around the rim; offensive game limited beyond that.
