Courtney Fortson PG LAC 11 Months
Courtney Fortson, who was an All-Star in the D-League this season, revealed that he will not play in the D-League next year.
"It's either the NBA, Europe or China for me. But the D-League is not an option right now," he said. It's hard to blame Fortson after he lit up the league and couldn't get a call up, but his small stature is working against him as he tries to climb back into the NBA.

Rockets sign PG Courtney Fortson to a 10-day contract on Saturday.
Fortson's deal could be a bellwether for the status of Kyle Lowry -- if he isn't re-signed after 10 days, Lowry could return sooner than later. Either way, Fortson has no value with both Goran Dragic and Derek Fisher on the roster.

Clippers released G Courtney Fortson on Friday.
By releasing Fortson, the Clippers think Chris Paul is showing no ill-effects from his recent hamstring injury and that Eric Bledsoe is just about ready to be called up from the NBADL to take over third-string PG duties behind second-stringer Mo Williams.

Courtney Fortson hit 5-of-10 shots for 13 points, four boards, two assists and a 3-pointer in Tuesday's blowout loss to the Jazz.
He was very active and saw plenty of run in garbage time, as the Jazz were dominant tonight. He's not worth owning in fantasy leagues, but can be put on watch lists in deeper ones.
