Nice signing for Baskonia. It will be good to see him in ACB.

Super team trend spreading to Europe. Adam Silver needs to make a decision.

He averaged 14.3 and 4.6 in 28 minutes in the NBA. Not first selection material but not that bad, I thought he can be given another chance in the NBA nut injuries really slowed him down the last years. I always thought he can be a very impactful player in europe, it's time to ball now, no excuses.

This is a sign of how euro basketball is changing. All these players have played for Baskonia in their primes: Prigioni, young Calderon, young Dragic, Huertas, Nocioni, Scola, Splitter, Oberto...

A couple of years ago they signed a washed up Odom and now this. Oh Lord....

Injuries weren't his biggest issue. It really seemed like he just stopped caring.

Yes he was like fased out, but he was playing decent basketball with the Knicks until that stupid flying dunk break him up.

he is not as bad as people say, his biggest problem was he was a #1 pick and could never live up to it
