Glen Rice Jr.’s rookie season came and went with just a few glimpses of his NBA potential but more than enough strong performances in the Developmental League to maintain the intrigue surrounding his potential as the son of a former NBA All-Star.

Here are three numbers from Rice’s 2013-14 campaign:

1
Games started by Rice this past season. When Bradley Beal went down with a leg injury, the Wizards inserted Rice into the starting lineup for a Dec. 9 contest against Denver. The guard finished with seven points on 3-for-9 shooting and three steals.

24.3
Points averaged during a three-game rehab stint in January with the Iowa Energy of the NBA’s D-League. Rice said the time, which came after he had his wrist surgically repaired, served to re-elevate his confidence and demonstrated the explosive scoring potential possessed by the 6-foot-6 rookie.

29.7
Field-goal percentage for Rice in 11 games this past season. The number was well below his efficiency during his days at Georgia Tech, when he shot 43.5 percent from the field and displayed a capable stroke from three-point range. Rice was 5-for-11 on three-pointers from the left side of the floor with the Wizards this past season, but he failed to make a shot from any other area on the floor outside the paint.
