It's almost unconscionable for him to be playing for Brazil this offseason - considering his contract with the Wiz and the number of injuries he's had. If he gets another injury this offseason, I'd look into whether or not his contract is voidable. I'm no lawyer, but I'd think a good attorney could make the case that this is wreckless behavior.
He didn't play for the national team last summer though.
And he doesn't have many opportunities left. Plus, Brazil is hosting the Olympics in two years and the Brazilian basketball program can't flop like it did last year when they sucked.
So, I understand he feels an obligation.
I mean, he's going to get hurt regardless if he comes into Training Camp rested or not. He had rest last summer and STILL got injured early on.
He's just always going to get injured and miss 20-30 games.
It'd be nice to dump him elsewhere so we don't have to worry.
