Of all Arizona's players in the D-League this season, Kyle Fogg might be a particularly interesting one to keep an eye on.

The parent Houston Rockets kept placing players over him at Rio Grande Valley last season but Fogg could have a better chance to stand out with the expansion Delaware 87ers, which are being fully run and owned by Philadelphia.

The D-League-focused blog Ridiculous Upside said of Fogg, "If he plays well when given the chance, he's likely to prove he belongs in the NBA logging minutes for the 76ers."

Fogg went to camp with Denver, but was cut and went to Delaware, which took him in a D-League expansion draft. He'll be joined in the 87ers camp by former Cal guard Jerome Randle and former UCLA forward Reeves Nelson.

Overall, Arizona could have nearly as many former players in the D-League (seven) as the NBA (nine) this season. The others:

-- Zane Johnson (UA and Hawaii) was drafted by Canton, where he will play with former Cal guard Jorge Gutierrez.

-- Garland Judkins (UA, Texas A&M Corpus-Cristi) was drafted by Santa Cruz and says he's now headed to Iowa.

-- Kevin Parrom was drafted by Rio Grande Valley.

-- Grant Jerrett is headed to Tulsa.

-- Salim Stoudamire will attempt a comeback in Fort Wayne.

-- Mustafa Shakur is returning to Erie.

Our 64-page basketball special section is now available online as an e-edition, which is posted to the right. 

There's an in-depth look at UA's recruiting success, as well as a bunch of other stories that include a season overview, sidebar on Nick Johnson's role as a recruiter, a column and fan guide from Greg Hansen, story on ASU's Jahii Carson, among many others.

We also had a look over the weekend at Gabe York's situation if you missed that.

After visiting USC, Stanley Johnson says the Trojans have told him he'll be able to play his style of play as the team's only small forward.

Findlay's Jonah Bolden, a fast-rising 2014 forward from Australia, says he'll cut his list to five schools soon. 

He previously announced on Twitter a Top 10 of UCLA, Michigan, UNLV, Louisville, SMU, LSU, Arizona, Oregon State, Auburn and Vanderbilt.

Andre Iguodala and his new team begin a four-game road swing tonight, in Philadelphia, of all places.

A Jonas Brothers-backpack-toting Shabazz Muhammad says the Internet "hypes up your head" as a prospect.

Stanford's Chasson Randle scored 37 points in an exhibition game.
