On Roster, DNP With Team

Postby Robert Bradley » Fri Dec 30, 2011 10:01 pm

Using some players that John Grasso had found, along with a few others I found I thought I would start a list here of players who were with a team but never appeared in a game with them. It's far from complete, so any contributions would be helpful.

Please Note - this is not a list of players who missed a complete season but played with the team in another season (such as Greg Oden with Portland in 2010-11)

Jonas Jerebko 2010-11
Terrico White 2010-11



Using that criteria, Jerebko shouldn't be on the list since he played for Detroit in 2009-10. He's also played for them this year.
The late Conrad McRae is one to add since he was with Denver in 98-99 on a 10 day contract
but never got in a game. He's one of the few players to be on an NBA roster but never play in the NBA.
I should be able to add quite a few more next week as I have a few files with that kind of info.

Thanks John, I started the list during the offseason, so at that point he (Jerebko) qualified, but as you point out, he no longer does.

I'm going to see how much success I have going through transactions in media guides to come up with more.

Hinson played with the Nets in several other seasons, so he would only qualify for the Hawks (1992-94)

Good article describing some unusual Pacer circumstances:

http://lmf.websitetoolbox.com/post?id=1 ... nextnewest

It's about 8 messages down.

Scott English would definitely qualify (on bench for one game before being released)

Damon Bailey, maybe: IR all season as a rookie, on bench as member of team, but not dressed all year. Never played a game.
