Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE
Andre Emmett had a quick stint with the Nets, but he's hungry for more.
Most casual basketball fans haven't heard from Andre Emmett since he played under Bob Knight at Texas Tech in the early 2000s.
Now, Emmett is trying to make his name known in the D-League, and get a call-up before the All-Star break to New Jersey (now Brooklyn).
Emmett plays for the Reno Bighorns and had his best season in 2011-12 with 23.1 points, 5.5 boards and 3.2 assists a game and a 52.1 shooting percentage, all career-highs.
Mind you, he also has the CBA record for most points in a game in 2010 with 71 points.
Emmett could easily make his way onto an NBA bench as a backup point guard for a team that needs one. In a couple years, he may make a starting lineup on a struggling team.
His ceiling is as high as it'll ever be.
