  1. Tony Mitchell TONY MITCHELL Hapoel Galil Gilboa (Winner League) signed 25-year old American forward Tony Mitchell (203-107kg-92, college: N.Texas). He played last summer at Metros de Santiago in LNB league in Dominican Republic, but left the team in June. Mitchell managed to play in three leagues in two countries last year. In 8 LNB games he had 14.3ppg, 9.0rpg, 2.1apg, 1.3spg and 2.4bpg. The last season he played at Magnolia Hotshots in Filipino PBA where in 8 games he recorded very impressive stats: 21.3ppg, 14.4rpg, 1.8apg, 1.0spg and 2.9bpg. Mitchell also spent pre-season at Limoges CSP Elite (ProA) in French league that year. The other team he played that season for was Maccabi Haifa. In 17 Winner League games he averaged 10.7ppg, 5.5rpg, 1.6apg and 1.1bpg.In 2013 Mitchell was drafted by Detroit Pistons (NBA) in second round (37th overall). The former University of North Texas standoutis in his fifth season in pro basketball. Read more: http://www.eurobasket.com/Israel/news/523707/Galil-Gilboa-signs-Tony-Mitchell,-ex-Metros-STGO

  3. With a 4-2 win-loss record, it would be easy to say that the Star Hotshots are in a great position to clinch a playoff spot in the ongoing PBA Commissioner’s Cup. Up next for the Hotshots are Blackwater, Rain or Shine, Tropang TNT, Meralco and Alaska which, except for the Elite, are touted as strong playoff contenders. Just like any other import-flavored conference, these foreign reinforcements end up being replaced if a team feels a need to make changes or adjustments to improve on their playoff chances. But Victolero, during a short talk with PBA mediamen after their tough loss to the Beermen last Sunday, expressed his hope of seeing import Tony Mitchell play a notch better than his six-game norm of 22 points, 14.2 rebounds and 3 blocks in their upcoming tough assignments. read more: http://sports.mb.com.ph/2017/04/17/pba-tony-mitchell-needs-to-step-up-and-fast/
  4. I asked them why they didnt have any actual NT game film of Mitchell... they just liked my tweet. Regardless, great move by Mitchell to go to one of the top leagues in Europe.
  5. http://www.nba.com/warriors/mitchell-waived-20151012 Not exactly a shock at this point. Wish him the best.
  6. Why a fresh start benefits Tony Mitchell Mitchell played only 79 minutes last season. Just four players who were on an NBA contract all season (excluding those who missed the entire year due to injury) played less: Ricky Ledo Robert Covington Carrick Felix Keith Bogans The last Pistons rookie to play so little? Walter Sharpe. There was just no trust with Mitchell. Mitchell was drafted as a project, and his minimal playing time though perhaps not to that degree was no surprise. Now, he has a chance to impress a staff that has few preconceived notions about him. Did he work hard enough last year? Was he focused enough?

  7. This might be the most important competition of camp. The Pistons already have 15 players with guaranteed contracts, and Monroe would bring it to 16. The regular-season limit is 15, meaning that Detroit would have to trade or waive someone. A trade is always possible, but its most likely someone gets cut. That player would still get paid this year, but hell lose a chance to prove that he deserves another NBA contract. The dropped player could come from beyond my Bynum-Datome-Mitchell list, but those three not being handpicked by the new regime works against them.

  8. ORLANDO, Fla. -- Tony Mitchell has heard two Detroit Pistons head coaches wonder aloud and publicly about whether he grasps the work load necessary to succeed as a borderline NBA player. His only guarantee is contractual. In that sense, he is safe next year. But to crack a crowded front line, the second-year forward has to shed the low-motor label that dogged him in college and continued through last season, when then-interim coach John Loyer openly said Mitchell needs to work harder. Already this offseason, Stan Van Gundy, the new president of basketball operations and head coach, has called Mitchell's workouts "a little inconsistent" and said the player "works hard when he's here."

  9. "Funny story from yesterday: Former North Texas star and current Detroit Pistons forward Tony Mitchell made an athletic play at the rim, but couldn't finish. One scout went to write down something in his note pad and another grabbed him on the shoulder and said, "Don't waste your ink." Take that as you will."

  12. Mitchell said he didn't go to the D-League with any specific goal but appreciated "playing and working on my game, working through mistakes, just stuff like that." "I wanted to dunk on somebody but I didn't accomplish that," Mitchell said. "But other than that, it was cool. I was just trying to play and learn from those guys down there, and just listen to some of the guys, what they see, and how can I improve on it." Mitchell played six games with five starts for Fort Wayne, and Siva five games with four starts. Siva averaged 12 points, 2.8 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 2.6 steals for the Mad Ants. Mitchell averaged 6.8 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.5 blocked shots. Both players suffered injuries. Early in their stay there, Siva fell and sprained both wrists, and Mitchell fell on his back while trying to block a shot. Mitchell also sprained an ankle last week in Reno.

  13. In six games (five starts) with the Mad Ants, Mitchell averaged 6.8 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.5 blocks in 22.1 minutes per game. Mitchell turned in his best performance of the stint vs. the Iowa Energy (1/3) when he recorded 14 points, nine rebounds, one assist and four blocks. The 37th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft from North Texas University, Mitchell has appeared in 10 games this season with the Pistons averaging 1.1 points and 1.1 rebounds in 4.0 minutes per game.

  14. We have spent some time talking UNT mens hoops over the last few days, but there is always something else going on. And thus, the Sunday night notes. The big news tidbit of the day is that Tony Mitchell appears to be headed back to the NBA to rejoin the Pistons this week Read more: http://meangreenblog.dentonrc.com/2014/01/sunday-night-notes-catching-up-with-garrett-davis-t-mitch-back-to-the-nba.html/
  15. Brady (Bowling Green, Ky.): I’m concerned about the futures of rookies Tony Mitchell and Peyton Siva. When can rookies be traded? If a rookie is waived, does the rookie continue to be paid the amount remaining on his contract? How are rookies supposed to improve when they spend so much time on the bench or dressed in suits during games? Do player development staff have the opportunity to work with them or are they expected to hire their own shooting or other coaches? Langlois: No one should have had any reasonable expectations that Mitchell or Siva were due to crack the rotation as rookies, Brady. They were both second-rounders, for one thing, and they came to the Pistons at the deepest positions on their roster, for another. Rookies can be traded now. You might be thinking about the Dec. 15 date that opens the door for free agents to be traded, but it doesn’t apply to rookies. As for pay, it all depends on the contract and how much of it was guaranteed. It was widely reported that Mitchell, as a high second-round pick, got two fully guaranteed seasons and Siva got one such guaranteed year. There is no expectation that either will be waived at any time before their contracts are up. Read more: http://www.nba.com/pistons/chat/mailbag_131218_1.html
  16. Averaging 1.8 minutes of playing time in those four games when the outcomes had been long decided. Only 21 years old and learning to navigate being a professional basketball player as a rookie. Such a player would seemingly be a candidate for the NBA Development League. But thats not the case with Pistons rookie Tony Mitchell. Barring a rash of injuries, the athletic power forward from North Texas will likely spend his rookie season learning the game with the Pistons. So a stint with the teams D-League affiliate Ft. Wayne probably wont happen. Read more: http://www.freep.com/article/20131208/SPORTS03/312080086/
  17. A few months ago when Tony Mitchell declared for the draft, he had more than a few people question his ability to make it in the league or even make the opening day roster. At first it seemed like the decision to leave UNT after two years might backfire when he fell to the second round of the NBA draft. Well, the Pistons are set to open against the Washington Wizards tonight and guess whos on the roster? Yep, Tony Mitchell.

  18. Auburn Hills Sometimes a complex game like basketball can be so simple if the instructions are concise and clear. Pistons second-round pick Tony Mitchell is living proof of that, with his quick feet, long strides and wide eyes making it hard for the coaching staff to ignore his attempt at cracking the rotation. He was the first big man off the bench Tuesday night and in tandem with fellow reserve Jonas Jerebko, can add a dimension of activity if Maurice Cheeks so chooses to go that route. He played 16 minutes against the Wizards and made all four of his shot attempts with one rebound, one steal and two blocks. He brushed off the observation he could be making headway ahead of Jerebko or Charlie Villanueva. Right now Im not worried about it, Im just taking whatever minutes I have, Mitchell said. Whatever Coach Cheeks wants me to do, Ill do it. Read More: From The Detroit News: http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20131023/SPORTS0102/310230114#ixzz2ie31ovVI
  19. Mitchell's contributions primarily came much earlier in the game, while the Pistons were assisting 22 of their 26 first-half field goals, including all 10 they scored in the second quarter. Mitchell was the first Piston off the bench. He finished with eight points on 4-of-4 shooting, plus a rebound, two assists and two blocked shots in 16 minutes. The second-round draft pick from North Texas plays at the Pistons' most crowded position, power forward. Greg Monroe starts there, while Josh Smith, who was healthy but didn't play Tuesday as a rest measure, also figures to play there regularly when not at small forward. Jonas Jerebko and Charlie Villanueva also play power forward. But with Villanueva seemingly slipping in the pecking order, and Jerebko pressed into more small-forward minutes because of Gigi Datome's injury forcing Singler to play more at guard, Mitchell remains in the mix. "I'm a rookie, you know what I'm saying? Whatever comes up to me, I just take it as it is," Mitchell said. "There's still a learning curve for myself and my fellow rookies, as well. I'm just trying to learn how to play the game under coach Cheeks. It's gone well, for the most part. "Whoever plays, that's coach's decision at the end of the day. Right now, everybody's just working, trying to play together, learning each other a little bit." The Pistons (3-4) continue to work through through preseason with several key injuries.

  20. Those are two of Tony Mitchell's eight points against the Wizards on Tuesday, coming at the end of the first quarter. He finished the game shooting a perfect 4-for-4 from the field -- but that's just part of the story. He also blocked a couple of shots, dished two assists, notched a steal and a rebound. His steal was pretty fun: he picked off an errant John Wall pass in the first quarter and led a fast break before assisting to a trailing Jonas Jerebko. Simply put, the dude's just fun to watch -- I'm really, really hoping we see a whole lot of him all season long. Fortunately, it sounds like Mo Cheeks is willing to consider it.

  21. With the roster appearing to be set, Vince Ellis looks at individual Pistons players and assesses expectations for the coming season. Todays player Power forward Tony Mitchell Power forward Tony Mitchell How obtained: Second-round pick in the June draft the 37th overall selection. Looking back: Considered a potential lottery pick before an uneven sophomore season caused his stock to drop at North Texas. Even casual observers can notice his effort in getting back to help on defense wasnt up to standards, but the Pistons are intrigued by his athleticism and size. His salary: $500,000 (Year 1 of three-year deal). Looking ahead: A lot isnt expected this season, so there probably will be a D-League stint.
