Douby had been the No. 3 pick in the Development League’s draft, and he further cemented himself as a strong call-up candidate with a 20-points-per-game start to the Sioux Falls’ season.
With Shanghai, Douby significantly bolsters a scoring backcourt that lost Von Wafer for the year, teaming with Indiana Pacers camp invite Darnell Jackson at point guard.
Shanghai is expected to go deep in the Chinese playoffs, a scenario that could prevent Douby from signing in the NBA late in its season.
After three seasons as a standout at Rutgers, Douby went 19th in the NBA Draft in 2006 to the Sacramento Kings and played two seasons with the organization. He signed a free agent deal with the Toronto Raptors in 2009, but was later released.
Douby, 29, has averages of 4.1 points and one rebound while shooting 31.2 percent from three-point range over three NBA seasons. The 6-foot-3 sharpshooter closed the 2012-13 season with Zhejiang.
It should be noted that Douby set a record in the Chinese Basketball association not long ago, scoring 75 points in a win over the Shanxi Brave Dragons in only 36 minutes.
Douby set a mark with his Zhejiang Golden Bulls that could last for quite a while. The mark is the highest in the CBA’s 18-year history, one that eclipses the 71-point record set by former Memphis Grizzlies guard Andre Emmett.Follow @exnbadotcom
