Report: Brady Heslip stays in D-League, declines overseas offer

Wednesday December 31st, 2014

Three-point specialist Brady Heslip will stay in the D-League after declining an overseas offer, ESPN's Marc Stein reports.

Heslip was reportedly set to sign with a Turkish team, but Stein reports he will stay with the Reno Big Horns in hopes of signing with an NBA team soon.

Heslip, 24, is in his first professional season out of Baylor and has played well in Reno. He is averaging 27.1 points while shooting 49.4 percent on three-pointers. He has posted 6.8 made three pointers per contest while attempting nearly 14 each game.

His eye-popping stats can partly be attributed to Big Horns head coach David Arseneault Jr.'s offensive scheme, which features a designated shooter. Arseneault previously was an assistant at Division III Grinnell College, where a player scored 138 points in a single game in 2012.

Heslip spent training camp with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
