2010 NBA Draft: Two Un-Drafted Prospects Find Their Homes

The title may be a little misleading because they still have to make the team. However, two point guards were the first to be invited to play on a NBA summer team.

Those two players are Duke's Jon Scheyer and UConn's Jerome Dyson.

Neither of the two was really promised to be drafted. Each have the ability to run the point but there are still question marks.

Dyson was announced to participate on the Cleveland Cavaliers summer team. 

On the other hand, Scheyer is going to D.C with John Wall and the Wizards.

Dyson seems to be in a situation where he could possibly make the roster. He is coming to a team that doesn't really need a point guard because of the services of LeBron James--that's assuming he stays.

He could come right in and play the role Mo Williams and Delonte West failed to play. 

He is very aggressive and has the ability to score the ball at will. 

He reminds me a lot of Phoenix Suns guard Leandro Barbosa. Neither player gets lift on their jump shot and both stand 6-foot-3. Not to mention, neither was looked on to be much of a threat in the NBA.

Barbosa proved he can be an under-sized shooting guard, can Dyson? We'll find out shortly.

As for Scheyer, he is also put into a place where he can make the roster. He is 6'5'' and has the ability to play either position.

He can come into Washington as a shooting guard and provide three-point shooting from the wing.

Not only that, when Wall is out he has the ability to run the offense. He sees the court well and get's his teammates involved on the offensive side of the ball.

Scheyer and Dyson are both placed in situations where they might make the roster.

More un-signed talent is one the way.
