The Austin Spurs, presented by SWBC, announced today the team has acquired Travis Trice from the Wisconsin Herd in exchange for Nick Johnson, the returning rights to Olivier Hanlan and Austin’s own 2019 NBA G League Draft 2nd Round Pick. The trade is subject to Trice and Johnson passing a physical.

Trice (6-2, 177) is averaging 15.4 points, 5.1 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.47 steals in 34.8 minutes over 19 games (18 starts) this season with the Wisconsin Herd. He joined the Herd after spending training camp with the Milwaukee Bucks.

The guard spent the 2017-18 campaign split between the Brisbane Bullets, where he averaged 15.5 points, 3.6 rebounds and 5.1 assists in 32.2 minutes over 27 games and Champville SC of the Lebanese Basketball League.

Trice spent the first half of the 2016-17 season with the Cairns Taipans in Australia, averaging 14.6 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists in 26.7 minutes over 26 games. For the second half he joined the Westchester Knicks, averaging 21.1 points, 3.6 rebounds and 6.4 assists in 35.6 minutes over nine games.

In his first professional season, he played 51 games for Westchester in 2015–16 where he averaged 15.3 points, 3.5 rebounds, 5.7 assists in 34 minutes over 49 games (48 starts) after being waived by the New York Knicks in the preseason.

The Michigan State Spartan played four years in college, holding career averages of 8.5 points, 2.9 assists and 2.1 rebounds in 23.6 minutes over 134 games played.

The Semi-Finals matchups are as follows:

* San Lorenzo de Almagro v AEK
* Flamengo v Austin Spurs

This is the first-ever edition of the FIBA Intercontinental Cup to feature the reigning champions of the NBA G League, Basketball Champions League and DIRECTV Liga de las Americas.

You guys should be paying a closer attention to Nikola Milutinov.
He is probably the best Center in the Euroleague ATM..

I'm hoping to find some time soon to watch some of Lonnie's Austin highlights. I was high on him coming out of college, but haven't had much chance to check him out this season.
