Nuggets' Jordan Hamilton Playing In Drew League

Before the NBA lockout began, the league had already canceled the Las Vegas Summer League, which would have been a chance for Denver Nuggets to see Jordan Hamilton play against a low-level of NBA competition. But Hamilton is now playing in South Central Los Angeles' Drew League for the L.A. Unified.

In a recent story by Pedro Moura of ESPN Los Angeles, we learn that Hamilton came up with a huge block to stop the game-tying layup in a recent game. And according to Moura, Hamilton reported that he was a bit out of shape, having not played competitive basketball for about three weeks. He scored 20 points, pulled down seven rebounds and stole the ball three times in his summer debut. That's the kind of production Hamilton will need to bring once he steps onto an NBA court if he wants to receive playing time with a crowded field ahead of him (Arron Afflalo, Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari).

But Hamilton will need to find something to do as the lockout heads into the fall. Timofey Mozgov has already signed with his former Russian team and Ty Lawson is thinking about heading to Europe if things stay the same into November. What will Hamilton do?
