INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Glen Rice Jr. already knows what to expect in his next job.
After spending last season competing against bigger bodies, more refined shooters and quicker guards than he ever faced in college, the 6-foot-6 shooting guard is now on the verge of becoming the first player to go from D-League star to NBA first-round draft pick.
"I think the D-League competition is a little better than people think and most of the guys have already been here (team workouts)," Rice said after his latest stop Monday at Indiana. "I think that was one of the biggest helps. All of my teammates have been through this and played in the summer league and they were able to tell me what I needed to work on last season."
