DENVER, Dec. 17, 2007 – The Colorado 14ers today announced the re-acquisition of guard Eddie Gill. Gill was the #1 overall draft pick in this year’s D-League Draft and returns to the 14ers after being the first Gatorade Call-Up of the season by the New Jersey Nets.

The Aurora, Colorado native appeared in 13 games and made one start this season for the Nets. He averaged 2.9 points and 1.6 assists in 11.5 minutes per game. Gill was also in the New Jersey Nets training camp this pre-season, and has spent time with the Nets, Indiana Pacers, Portland TrailBlazers, and Memphis Grizzlies since entering the league in 2000 out of Weber State.

The 14ers host the Austin Toros at the Broomfield Event Center on Tuesday night, where Gill will make his season debut for Colorado. To make room on the roster, the 14ers waived forward Julian Sensley due to injury.
