ARMOR ACQUIRE FIRST ROUND EXPANSION DRAFT PICK, MARCUS CAMPBELL
In addition to his brief time playing in Italy, Campbell, a former Mississippi State Center, has played on various NBA D-League teams including the former Arkansas Rimrockers, the Austin Torros, the Idaho Stampede, and most recently, the former Anaheim Arsenal.
Campbell, 27, played in 38 games with the Arsenal during the 2008-09 season, averaging 11.0 points and 8.9 rebounds per game. In four seasons in the NBA D-League, Campbell has accumulated 1,487 points, and his 1,017 rebounds and 171 blocks rank fifth and sixth, respectively, in league history.
“Marcus knows this league and the talent that it holds. He brings both talent and experience to the table as well as size and size is a quality you can’t teach.” Said Head Coach and Director of Basketball Operations, Dee Brown, “We are always looking to improve our roster and acquiring Marcus gives us another piece to the puzzle.”
To make room for Campbell on the roster, Springfield waived former Auburn guard, and Bernardston Mass Native, Adam Harrington.
Springfield will take on Fort Wayne this Friday evening at 7 p.m. at the MassMutual Center. The Armor will be honoring all Military personnel that evening and will offer a $2 ticket at the MassMutual Center Box Office to any member of the Military who has a valid Military ID. Box Office hours are Monday through Friday, 9-5, Saturday, 10- 4. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at www.armorhoops.com or the MassMutual Center Box Office.
