Former Washington Huskies guards Scott Suggs and Abdul Gaddy found a home in the NBA Development League.

Suggs was taken in the first round (15th overall) in the D-League draft on Friday by the Santa Cruz Warriors, which is the minor league team for the Golden State Warriors.

Meanwhile, Gaddy was picked 10th in the second round by the Iowa Energy, which is the D-League affiliate for the Chicago Bulls, Denver Nuggets, Minnesota Timberwolves, New Orleans Pelicans and Washington Wizards.
