Canton Charge training camp roster

CANTON - The D-League Canton Charge announced their 2012-13 training camp roster on Tuesday.

It consists of 16 players that were acquired via the D-League draft, trades, open tryouts and affiliate player rule.

Kevin Anderson, Michael Eric and Kevin Jones were all in the Cavaliers' training camp this season and added to the Charge roster via the affiliate rule. The rule allows three players from your NBA parent club’s training camp roster to be protected from having to enter the draft upon clearing NBA waivers and join the affiliate automatically.

Kyle Gibson is the lone returning player in training camp with the Charge.  Gibson played in 44 games (28 starts) with Canton last season, averaging 9.9 points on .403 shooting with 3.6 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 23.9 minutes per game.  He played an instrumental role in the team’s deep postseason run, starting all six playoff games and averaging 18.8 points on .486 shooting with 4.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 33.7 minutes per game.

Jonathan Moore and Titus Robinson were both added through attending the team’s open tryouts among over 60 players with various different basketball backgrounds that came out to compete.  Six players from Canton’s 2012 draft class will be coming to Charge camp, highlighted by 10thoverall selection D’Aundray Brown, who also participated in NBA training camp with the Cavaliers.
