Last night was DeShaun Thomas' night, but he's not the only Buckeye looking to prove his worth to the NBA. According to Bob Baptist/Dallas Lauderdale's agent, Lauderdale, who played last season with the Blazer's D-League affiliate the Idaho Stampede, will play for the Blazer's Summer League team next month in Las Vegas:

Lauderdale, who has done a professional stint in Poland, is a bit undersized to be the banger he needs to be in in an NBA paint, but it appears he will be getting his shot. Could this mark the return of Jon Diebler, who was last seen launching threes in Turkey? (Portland Houston owns his rights.)
