Can the Sacramento Kings lure Andrei Kirilenko?
We might be closer to that answer according to Ailene Voisin of the Sacramento Bee, who cites sources that indicate that the CSKA Moscow and free agent forward might be interested in an offer from the Kings who are "deeply in the mix".
There has been no word yet if Kirilenko will play Wednesday night in Euroleague action against Panathinaikos.no comments
Hey basketball world…
This weekend my team got the much-needed win on the road against Dexia Mons, another Eurocup team from Belgium.
There is now just three games left before our Christmas break and hopefully Coach Gjergja will give us time off so everyone can spend some time with their families during the holidays. Especially those American-import players around the league -- Sean Singletary, AJ Slaughter, Ahmad Nivins, Warren Carter, Justin Cage, Ronell Taylor, and my teammates Kennedy Winston and Chris Booker.
Being so far from home almost all year, they would benefit from a trip home.no comments
Say what you will about the NBA, but this much is true: it is a league of second chances.
In Bonzi Wells’ case, he might fit in the third or fourth chance category.
By now you know Wells’ story. By now you’ve probably heard that the former shooting guard with the Portland Trail Blazers, Memphis Grizzlies, Sacramento Kings, Houston Rockets, New Orleans Hornets – and stints in China and Puerto Rico – is back for one last go around in the NBA, this time in training camp with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Is this the new Bonzi?no comments
Mickael Pietrus career with the Toronto Raptors isn't going to happen afterall.
Paul Coro with the Arizona Republic detailed the story here with the proposed deal that would have sent Pietrus to Toronto in exchange for a second round pick from the Raptors called off after it was learned Pietrus failed his physical.
Another league source said Pietrus didn't fail his physical, but some in Toronto's organization were concerned with swelling in the forward's right knee after surgery back in July.
For now, Pietrus is still a member of the Phoenix Suns.no comments
Hey World -- I’m back again for Round 2…
First, I thought I’d catch you guys up on what’s happened hoops-wise since my last installment.
We’ve had a little bit of a tough stretch, losing our last two games. The first was against Burgos where we were up by 10 points heading in to the half at their place (which is considered one of the toughest environments in the whole league) but ended up losing by twelve points after we struggled to get stops in the 4th quarter. The second loss was at home against Menorca, a team that played in the ACB League last year and is in contention to be promoted back up this year. It was one of those ugly, grind-it-out type games that we end up losing by three points despite turning them over 25 times. Defensively, it was one of our best games all year, but we just weren’t able to make the big buckets we needed down the stretch.
It sucked. Big time. no comments
