In my new quest to post something relevant to Maryland basketball every few days from now through the start of the 2008-2009 season, it is my duty to inform otherwise unaware Terp faithful that D.J. Strawberry, perhaps the best Terp in the post NCAA championship era, has been traded to the Rockets from the Suns for rookie point guard Sean Singletary from UVa.
According to a story in the Houston Chronicle, D.J. has a non-guaranteed contract, which means he has to make the team in training camp in order to earn NBA coin.
“He’s got a shot to make it,” general manager Daryl Morey told the Chronicle. “He’s different. He’s athletic, can really defend multiple guard spots."
