Pro ‘Noles: One Month Into the NBA Season

Florida State has put a lot of players into the NBA and other professional leagues over the last few years. Now that the NBA Season is in full swing, let’s get an update on all of your professional Seminoles.

Jonathan Isaac

Isaac has started all 14 games this year for the Orlando Magic, and is putting up career highs across the board, averaging 13.1 PPG, 7.5 RPG, 1.4 APG, 2.8 BPG, and 1.4 SPG on a 46.4/34.4/82.1 shooting split. If he were to keep up these defensive numbers, it’s very likely he could be in the discussion for Defensive Player of the Year. He’s scored over 20 points three times this season, including a 25 point, 9 rebound, 4 steal, and 2 block game against Indiana on November 23.


Malik Beasley

Beasley is in a contract year, but hasn’t played like it yet. He’s been receiving only 13 minutes per game, and is only averaging 6.5 PPG, 1.5 RPG, and 1.2 APG on a 39.7/47.4/100.0 shooting split. He scored a season high 17 points against Phoenix on November 25.

Dwayne Bacon

Bacon has started 10 of 14 games for the Charlotte Hornets, and is also putting up career highs across the board stats-wise: 7.5 PPG, 2.7 RPG, 1.3 APG, and 0.9 SPG. He is also in a contract year. He scored a season-high 25-points against the Warriors on November 2.

Terance Mann

Mann started 3 games for the Clippers when Landry Shamet went down with an injury, and made the most of it putting up a 13 point, 6 rebound, 8 assist game against the Atlanta Hawks on November 16. The Clippers expect him to be seeing heavy minutes as soon as the second half of the season, which is phenomenal for a second round pick on a contending team.

Mfiondu Kabengele

Kabengele has been stuck on the Clippers’ depth chart behind Ivica Zubac and Montrezl Harrell, two established bigs. He’s only appeared in four games for the Clippers, but put up 10 points in 7 minutes against the Hawks on November 16.

Because he’d been seeing such limited playing time, the Clippers sent him down to the G-League where he has been playing really well; 13.0 PPG, 9.7 RPG, and 2.1 BPG. He’s put up some great highlights, too.

Phil Cofer

Cofer made the College Park Skyhawks roster, the Atlanta Hawks G-League affiliate, out of a camp tryout, and is starting to make the most of it.

He has started 2 of the 7 games he’s appeared in, and is averaging 2.4 PPG and 3.7 RPG.

Braian Angola

After a stint with the Orlando Magic’s summer league team, Angola is back playing overseas, now for Filou Oostende, a team in the Belgian Pro Basketball League.

He is starting and is averaging 13.6 PPG, 4.4 RPG, 3.0 APG, and 1.0 SPG on a 38.6/40.5/83.3 shooting split.

Christ Koumadje

Koumadje is playing for the Delaware Blue Coats, the 76ers G-League affiliate, where he also spent the summer league.

Currently, he’s averaging 7.0 PPG, 8.8 RPG, 2.0 APG, and 3.0 BPG in 4 appearances.

David Nichols

Nichols has been balling out overseas, averaging 23.7 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 3.3 APG, and 2.8 SPG and has started every game for Omonia-Nicosia in Cyprus. Against Etha Engomi, Nichols scored 33 points.

Michael Ojo

Ojo is playing for Crvena Zvezda in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague. Here, he is averaging 5.4 PPG and 3.0 RPG in 10 appearances. He scored a season high 12 points against ALBA Berlin in 17 minutes of action.

Boris Bojanovsky

Bojanovsky is starting for BK Levicki in the Slovakian Basketball League, averaging 8.5 PPG, 5.9 RPG, and 1.6 BPG.

Ian Miller

Miller is playing for Chorale de Roanne where he is starting and averaging 13.4 PPG, 1.9 RPG, and 2.9 APG (which leads the team).

Xavier Rathan-Mayes

XRM has started all 5 games for the Texas Legends in the NBA G-League, where he is averaging 18.0 PPG, 4.4 RPG, and 3.2 APG on a 44.9/25.0/69.2 shooting split.

Deividas Dulkys

The man who once torched North Carolina is currently playing for BAXI Manresa, where he is averaging 4.0 PPG, 2.2 RPG, and 1.2 APG.

Toney Douglas

Douglas is still playing, now for Movistar Estudiantes, but has only appeared in one game where he 3 assists, 2 rebounds, and 2 steals.
