Awesome job!

It's great to see Pat Burke playing. That's a feel-good story right there.

Pekovic looks like he's been a scoring machine (I remember you telling me that Euroleague scoring numbers are lower than in the NBA). Like wise, I'm happy to see that Eric Williams has found a niche. Have you been able to see many games?

This is a great list. I appreciate that you've included who still has their rights held by an NBA team. Do you think that we'll see any of these players in the NBA later this season, or next year? Or are they all just marginal players that are trying to make a living in a lesser league?

It's really hard to tell. A lot of the international players whose rights are held by teams that drafted them (or acquired them through draft trades) are very contingent on contracts and buyouts. Nikola Pekovic signed a big contract. He's also made some comments that discourages me from thinking he'll ever play in the NBA. Tiago Splitter also recently signed a large contract.

I think you could see someone like Giorgos Printezis come over next year for the Raptors.

Sidenote: At the 07 draft after he was selected in the late 2nd round, David Stern goes "And Giorgos is here!" and he ran up to the stage from the general audience wearing a t-shirt and sports jacket. How can you not love the NBA Draft?

Thanks!

There's Shumpert. Sheesh, he's 31 already...seems just a couple years ago he was sinking 3's on Cuse. Good for him, if he's still earning some cash overseas.

Jaycee Carroll is averaging 19 ppg in the Italian League for Teramo Basket, hitting better than 50% of his three's. Not a PG yet.

What's kinda surprising about Jaycee is that he's shooting 76.5% from the ft line (26-34).


18.8 PPG, 5.3 rpg, 1.8 apg, 52.7% from 2, and 51.9% from 3.

Big fan of Nikola Pekovic. Glad to see he's doing half decent.

Koponen hasn't really been getting many minutes. He's playing with Virtus Bologna of the Italian League, getting under 15 mpg, but he's averaging more TO (.9) than assists (.7) and shooting 17.6% from three (3 for 17). Ouch.

Ibaka has been getting even less minutes than Petteri; about 12 mpg in the ACB (Spanish League) for Ricoh Manresa. 5 points, 3 rebs, and a block per game, but shooting almost 55% from the field. Hard to decipher anything from those minutes.
The only game Ibaka got over 20 minutes, he produced. He scored 15 pts (5-8 fg, 5-6 FT), and grabbed 7 boards (2 off) in 24.5 minutes.

I see Splitter is playing pretty well for Tau. I wish there was a way we could acquire his rights.
