In the first round, the Charge picked guard Roosevelt Jones. Jones, 23, played four years at Butler. He averaged 13.8 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.7 assists as a senior. Interestingly, he only took four total three-pointers at Butler.

With the No. 62 overall pick, Canton selected Amere May Jr. May Jr. played at Delaware State and his father, Amere May Sr., played professionally in Israel. May Jr. is listed at 6’3” and 185 pounds.

At pick No. 81, the Charge added guard Stedmon Lemon. A 6’6” wing, Lemon played two years at Johnson C. Smith, a Division II school in the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association, after starting his career at South Georgia Technical College.

After adding Lemon, the Charge added Chip Armelin with the No. 10 pick in the fifth round. Armelin, who was picked with a pick acquired from the Los Angeles Defenders, played college ball at Southern Mississippi. He spent last year with Naturtex-SZTE-Szedeak, a Hungarian professional team.

Next up, with the No. 13 pick in the fifth round, Canton selected Anthony Odunsi from Houston Baptist. Odsuni is a 6’4” guard who also played at Utah and Albany during a four-year college career.

With their last pick, No. 19 in the sixth round, the team added Trey Davis from the University of Massachusetts. Davis, 23, is a 6’0” guard who averaged 18.7 points as a senior last year. He also scored 40 points in a game last year after being motivated by his mom turning his phone off.

Canton opens up play on Nov. 11 with a road game against the Grand Rapids Drive. Quinn Cook, last year’s D-League Rookie of the Year, is among the players returning to the roster.
