Jon Elmore is a skilled point guard that plays for head coach Dan D’Antoni, who is the brother of current Houston Rockets’ head coach Mike D’Antoni, and Dan D’Antoni has nearly a decade of experience as an assistant coach in the NBA.

Elmore is an intriguing prospect, because he is a point guard that may play in an NBA type of offense in college, which may give him a slight advantage over other borderline draft prospects.  Elmore helped lead Marshall to an upset win over Wichita State this year in the tournament, and Jon Elmore is a player that may have the smarts and skills to end up on an NBA team’s summer league roster.
