1.  6' 8"  210  1983  Stanford                   
Josh Childress--- Olympiacos-- Greece--  Nets NBA
Had a very fine career at Stanford and was selected with the 6th pick of the 2004 NBA draft by the Atlanta Hawks. Joined a very young and athletic Hawks team and had a fine 4 year run playing big minutes and doing alittle bit of everything on the court. In terms of becoming an NBA All-Star, Josh was on the brink of breaking through with his all-around skills. In 2008 Josh might have become a groundbreaker by signing a huge deal of 3 year 20 million net income contract with Greek power Olympiacos.    CLICK READ MORE TO SEE MORE PLAYERS


This could be the start of many mid-level NBA players jumping over to Europe, getting big money NBA teams are not ready to pay to many players in such a tough ecomomic period. Olympiacos kept the trend going in the summer of 2009, signing Linas Kleiza to a 2 year 12 million dollar net income contract and also signed Von Wafer to a 2 year 5 million dollar net income deal. NBA teams who are struggling with the salary cap ,can not handle such free spending. Childress's first year in the Euroleague was a learning experience, scoring 8.8 points a game and 4.6 rebounds per game. His dramatic drives to the hoop, and amazing dunks over defenders that had become a common site in the NBA, were taken away by defenses backing off, hoping to not get beat off the dribble and was the strategy even more so in Europe because of different zone defenses. Josh lost in the Euroleague Final-Four to Panathinaikos and also lost Greek league championship to Panithinaikos. Josh said he is going back to Europe because he has unfinished buisness. The passion of both teams fans, is nothing he has ever heard in any stadium before. Panathinaikos and Olympiacos is like the Yankees and the Red Sox of Baseball back in the States, the fans in Greece make a football crowd on the East Coast seem more like a tennis crowd, it will be an exciting series when they meet in the spring. Olympiacos went to the Euroleague title game but lost to FC Barcelona who was deeper from the 3 point stripe and then lost to Panathinaikos in the Greek championship for thr same reason. Childress took a big offer from the Suns and will return to the NBA, but got a great world experience in his time with Olympiacos. Minutes were limited in his 1st year back in the NBA with the Suns, could be better if he moved to another NBA club to give energy.

2.  6' 8"  250  1977  Arizona State   
Mike Batiste--- Fenerbahce -- Turkey
Mike had a fine Pac-Ten career and joined the Memphis Grizzlies for the 2003 season averaging 6.4 points and 3.4 rebounds a game in 16 minutes per game. Mike was not totally ready for NBA ball in his early pro career, thus he played in the Belgian and Italian leagues before signing with Panathinaikos in July 2003 and has been a force in the paint ever since. He has won 2 Euroleague titles and 6 Greek League championships. Mike is a banger who does all the dirty work who has explosive and powerful dunking ability and can also hit the face-up jumpshot. NBA teams should have taken a long second look at Mike particuarly when he was in his prime, in his later 20's. There are many power forwards and centers in the NBA making double and even triple what Batiste makes, and  do not have the toughness or explosiveness that Mike has shown the last couple of years. Won another Euroleague and Greek title in 2010-11 with Panathinaikos.

3.  5' 9"  185  1977  Clemson   Terrell McIntyre-- Bologna-- Italy -- Retired
Was a big-time scorer at Clemson but because of his size, he went undrated in the 1999 NBA draft. Played in the German league and the A2 Italian league, where he worked on his game enough to be signed by Montepaschi Siena of the A1 league in Italy. Terrell became a star, winning  Italian titles in 2008 and 2009 ,where he was  named Finals MVP in both championship years. He has also been named a All Euro-League first team guard in 2008 and 2009. Terrell has progressed in his early 30's to the point where I would compare him to an older version of Aaron Brooks in Houston. McIntyre had an amazing playoff series against eventual champion Panathinaikos, going for 24, 27, and 35 points against a more dominant and deeper team. At this stage of his career he is better than alot of NBA point guards , but at the age of 32 he is looked at as too old. Terrell said he would like to give NBA a shot, and 2 teams inparticular would be good fits, New York and Philadelphia. Could be a combination of Aaron Brooks and Earl Boykins, and 2 million is all it could take. Won another Italian title in 2009-2010 season with Montepaschi and signed a free-agent offer with ACB team Unicaja of Spain for the 2010-2011 season. Signed with Bolgna of the Italian league for the 2011-12 season.

4.  6' 4"  190   1981  Maryland   Drew Nicholas-- CSKA Moscow -- Russia
Played in the deep ACC conference in college , and had a very good 4 year career, gainging All ACC 2nd team honors his senior season. Drew went undrafted in the 2003 NBA draft, so he started his pro career in Italy, scoring big numbers his 1st 2 seasons with Fabriano (27 PG), and with Livorno at (22 PG), he ended the 2004 season playing in the ACB, with TAU and managed 7 points per game. The next season he returned to Italy to play for Benetton in the Euroleague, and put up big scoring numbers at 19 points per game. He then moved on to Turkey to play with Euroleague team, Efes Pilsen and averaged 14 per game. His next stop was Greece with Panathinaikos, where he won a Euroleague crown, averaging 8 per game splitting time with a deep roster. At 28 years of age, Drew could still help many NBA teams, with his fine outside stroke, and probably should have gotten a good look after the year at Benetton. Helped Panathinaikos to another Greek title in 2009-2010. Won another Euroleague and Greek title in 2010-11 with Panathinaikos, but left for A.J Milano in 2011-12, where he will team with Panathinaikos teammate Antonis Fotsis.

5.  6' 4"  200  1976  Duke  Trajan Langdon--- CSKA Moscow--Russia  RETIRED 2011
Played at Duke on a deep college team. Selected with the 11th pick of the 1999 NBA draft by the Cavs. Injuries slowed Trajan's 3 year NBA career. Trasferred to Europe and has played for 4 major teams, in 2003 for Benetton Treviso in Italy, in 2004 for Turkish power Efes Pilsen, then in 2005 with the Russian league and Dynamo Moscow. The following year of 2006 he moved on to his team ever since CSKA Moscow. Won 2 Euroleague titles with teammate Theo Papaloukas in 2006 and 2008, winning Final Four MVP in 2008. Trajan can still help a playoff caliber NBA team as a key 3 point shooter off the bench but the money he makes for CSKA will not be matched by an NBA team at this stage of his career. Helped CSKA to another Russian title in 2009-2010 and the Euroleague Final Four. Scored 14 points in a preseason game win over the Cleveland Cavs in 2010-2011 season.
Decided to retire after he helped CSKA Moscow win the 2010-11 Russian PBL league title.

6.  6' 1"  180  1976  Bucknell  J R. Holden---CSKA Moscow-- Russia RETIRED 2011
Started his pro career in Latvia in 1998, then transferred to the Belgian league from 1999 to 2001. Progressed to the Greek league and played for AEK in 2002 and after a fine season with AEK he signed with Russian power CSKA where he has been ever since.
Was a key player on the 2 Euroleague championship teams in 2006 and 2008. Played for the Russian national team at Eurobasket 2007 in Spain and hit the game-winning shot with 2 seconds left to spoil the party for the NBA stars on the home Spaniard squad. Has definate NBA ability, possessing amazing quickness and if he is hitting his perimeter shot , he is a match-up problem. The money he makes at his age, it would not be a good move for him to leave his hero status in Russia. Signed a 2 year extension in the summer of 2009. Helped CSKA Moscow win the 2010-11 Russian PBL league title, as he saved his best for last on the season, going for 25 points in the final win and said he would be retiring.

7.  6' 3"  200  1983  Alaska Fairbanks  Brad Oleson---Caja Laboral---Spain 
Was a Division 2 All-American at Alaska Fairbanks. Signed with LEB team Rosalia of Spain in 2005 and won the LEB championship in 2007. Signed with ACB league and Fuenlabrada where he shocked all the so called scouts around the world by not only playing his 1st year of ACB ball, but dominating certain games against veteran Spanish players, becoming the leagues 2nd leading scorer at 18 points a game. He is a  Mini-Ginobolli with the ability to dunk on 7 footers and also hit a high percentage on the deep 3 point shot. Had Fuenlabrada hanging around a playoff spot all year long on a team picked much further down the standings. Had big games against ACB powers TAU and FC Barcelona. Spanish power Real Madrid signed Oleson to a big deal for 2010 season. After a coaching change,Messina wanted Pablo Prigioni to run Real Madrid at the point so Oleson was traded to Caja Laboral for the 2010 season. I think Oleson will get increased minutes at Laboral and with Euroleague exposure this Mini-Ginobolli will soon have NBA teams looking for his services. This is an incredible story on how hard work can get you big money from a small Alaskan high school. Helped Caja Laboral upset FC Barcelona in the ACB Finals as he hit big shots against Real Madrid in the semi-final series and did a good defensive job on Juan Carlos Navarro in the championship round. Played in Euroleague games last season on a deep roster.

8.  6' 8"  225  1979   Samford      Mark Salyers-- Moutahed--  Lebanon
Played his college ball at Samford University, from 1997 to 2001. He went undrafted in the NBA draft, and started his pro career in Italy, with Cimberlo from 2001 to 2003. He split the 2003-2004 season with Turkish squad, Oyak, and with French power Pau Orthez. Mark moved back to Turkey the next season, to play with Fenerbache. The 2005-2006 season, he bounced back to France and Italy, until he found Chorale Roanne as his home from 2006 to 2008. He became the go to guy at Roanne, and led the Euroleague in scoring in 2008, scoring 21.8 points per game, with 6.6 rebounds, shooting 54% from the field and 34% from 3 point range. He had a big game, that year, going for 40 points against his former team, Fenerbache. He has since moved on to the Ukrainian league and the French league with Lemans, where he plays now and is scoring 14 a game. Mark, could have been in the NBA, during that 3 year stretch, and helped many teams. Signed with Angelica Biella of the Italian league for the 2010-2011 season. Decided to sign in Lebanon for the 2011-12 season. Moved to the Turkish league with Trabzonspor in November 2011.

9.  6' 4"  185  1981  Miami(OH)  Chet Mason- Croatia--Adriatic--KK Zadar -- Retired
Chet is a native of Cleveland, Ohio, and he played his college ball at Miami of Ohio, where he played big minutes all 4 years, loading up the stat sheet in steals, assists, points and with an amazing amount of rebounds, from a 6' 4" guy, who played the point guard position.He averaged 7.9 and 7.6 rebounds per game in his final 2 years in college. After college he moved on to the D-League, to play with the LA D-Fenders and scored 7.6 points per game in 20 minutes a game, with his rebounding totals still solid. Chet has moved on to the Adriatic league for the 2009-10 season, and is playing well, loading the box score in many stats, his athleticism and amazing rebounding ability, should have let him get a good look by NBA people, but his 3 point shooting percentage has NBA guys holding off, but a guy I like in Carlos Arroyo, does not shoot the NBA 3 with regurlarity, but gets guys involved with assists, and that is why Chet could have a good impact on a defensive minded NBA team, just like Rajon Rhondo does in Boston. I would like to see him in ACB play next year if NBA guys do not come calling. Moved to Latvia and the Baltic league for the 2010-2011 season. Left for Zadar in the Adriatic league in mid-season 2011.

10.  6' 1"  180   1988   Arkansas     Patrick Beverley--Spartak-- Russia
Started his pro career in the Ukraine with Dnipro Dnepropetrovsk, where he averaged 16.7 pts. per game, shooting 48% and 38% from 3 pt. range, with 2.2 steals per game. Was selected in the 2nd round of the 2008 NBA draft by the Miami Heat, but chose to play in the Ukraine last season, to get his game together, before trying his hand at the NBA. Upgraded his European pro club, by signing with Greek power Olympiacos, for the 2010 season. Patrick will take some of the minutes, left behind by Lynn Greer transferring to Turkey. Patrick is very quick, and turns the corner to get to the hoop very well. Has a great defensive presence on the ball, hounding opposing point guards. Playing with Theo Papaloukas, he needs to work on his perimeter 3, to stay on the court. With a year or 2 with Olympiacos, I can see him joining the Heat, and pushing Chris Quinn and Carlos Arroyo for minutes, especially with his defensive mindset. Moved to the NBA for the 2010-2011 season with the Heat but was let go in preseason and signed with Spartak of the PBL Russian league in Jan. Still playing with Spartak in Russia for the 2011-12 season.

Louis Bullock---Cajasol--Spain - Available
Selected in the second round of the NBA draft in 1999. Started his European pro career in Italy and played from 1999 to 2002. He then transferred to the ACB league in Spain and played for Unicaja Malaga for 2 seasons. After 2 years with Malaga, Bullock transferred to Spanish powerhouse Real Madrid where he has been ever since. Won the ACB title with Real Madrid in 2005 and 2007. Interms of NBA potential, his small 6'  1'" height is not a good fit at the shooting guard position. He can play some lead guard as well but with his primary slot being the 2 guard ,the  European leagues was always a better choice for Louis. Has carved out an impressive European career considering his small frame. Moved to Cajasol for the 2010-2011 season of the ACB.

12.  6' 11"  265  1979  USC    Will McDonald-- Fujian-- China
Started his pro career in the French league in 2003. Moved on to 2 different mid-level ACB teams ,where he scored the ball well, using his big wide-body to his advantage in the low-post. Signed with Spanish powerhouse TAU in 2007 where he has teamed in the paint with Tiago Splitter to form a tall tandem at the center position. Had the body and the overall mobility to play in NBA, especially in his days of playing in the ACB, but at this stage of his career the ACB is a good league where he is well established. Could go back to a mid-level team to get more extended playing time and more touches in the post, if he wishes but a high-level team such as TAU always gives him a chance at a Spanish title. Signed with Gran Canaria in the ACB for the 2009-2010 season.
 Moved to DKV Joventut for the 2010-2011 ACB season.

Was not taken in the 2009 NBA draft after a good career at Gonzaga University. He plays the point guard spot but is not the best 3 point shooter, but with work it should improve.  Has tremendous leaping ability and can dunk on bigger players with ease. Played with Hapoel Gilboa Galil in 2009-2010 in the Israeli league and helped them upset power Maccabi Tel Aviv for the Israeli title. After a good year with Gilboa in 2009-2010 where he averaged 14 points and 4.5 assists, he signed this season with Euroleague club and Israeli power Maccabi Tel Aviv and should get good minutes in the best league in Europe, the Euroleague. Helped lead Macabbi Tel Aviv to the Euroleague Final Four in 2010-11, but chose not to stay with them for 2011-12, as he has many NBA teams looking for his services if their is an NBA season. If the lockout lasts, he could sign with another Euro club.

Was not selected in the 2007 NBA draft ,but wound up making the Lakers 15 man roster and saw limited playing time other than practice time. Was released by the Lakers in 2008. Moved on to Europe and played with Ricky Rubio on Joventut Badalona of the ACB league.Coby keeps trying to latch-on to an NBA roster by participating in NBA summer leagues but he should take on the Brad Oleson way of thinking, and join a mid-level ACB team to work on his game in a very impressive Spanish league and maybe with good numbers on a mid-level team, a Spanish powerhouse might give him a large payday. The NBA, other than the end of the bench is out of reach given his skill level. Signed with Granada in the ACB league of Spain and finally will get minutes to show what he can do. Moved to A.J Milano in Italy for 8 games late in the 2010-11 season. Signed with Montegranaro in Italy for the 2011-12 season

Omar Cook--A.J Milano--Italy
Selected in the second round of the 2001 NBA draft. Omar is more of a combo guard ,who at 6' 1" has defensive problems on an NBA roster. His European career started in Belgium and has progressed to the French and Russian leagues. Recently signed a 2 year deal with Unicaja of the ACB Spanish league. The  ACB is a positive step in Omar's career and the NBA should be an after thought in his mind. Unicaja has a tough 3 guard rotation of Cook, Pooh Jeter and Taquan Dean that will cause match-up problems for opponents in the ACB league and the Euroleague. Signed with Valencia in Spain for the 2010-2011 season. Helped Valencia get to the Euroleague playoffs, but decided to sign with A.J Milano in 2011-12.

Jerimiah Massey-- Kr. Krylia --Russia
Was a second-team All Big-12 selection in 2005 at K State. Went undrafted by NBA mostly due to his 6' 7" size at the power forward position being undersized in scouts minds. Started his pro career in Greece with Larissas where he led the league in rebounding as a rookie. Moved on to Aris in Greece where he was voted the most spectacular player of the Euroleague in 2007' where he ran the wings a had dramatic dunks on fast-break plays. Also has one of the best spin- moves in the low post in all of basketball. Jerimiah is a high flyer who could make many NBA rosters and be a nice reserve on playoff caliber teams. Signed by Real Madrid to a big deal after a great Greek league season. Real  Madrid is stacked and deep at many positions, Massey needs touches to show his greatness and a mid-level ACB team might be a better fit for his spectacular play. Moved to Xacobeo in March 2010. Signed in the Russian league with Lokomotiv for the 2010-2011 season.

 Graduated from the University of Rhode Island in 2008, where he was a dominant long-range 3 point shooter in Atlantic 10 play, hitting chots 5 to 8 feet past the 3 point line. Was not looked at by NBA teams due to his size and played his 1st year in Turkey with Mersin. Was picked up this season by ACB team Lagun ARO and has put up good numbers. After a good year in Spain, he could be looked at by NBA teams, as a 3 point specialist. Would be a great spot up shooter for Miami, but his lack of size will probably keep him in Europe with major clubs taking a good look at him next season.

He became the only player in Notre Dame history to score 1700 points and have 600 assists in the same season. A knee injury disrupted his senior season. Has the ability to be a backup point guard in the NBA ,particuarly on the offensive end, but defensively his slight build might become a problem. Played in the ACB league in 2009 on a mid-level team. The ACB and it's up and down pace is a good fit for his style of play. Playing with Fuenlabrada in the ACB league, for the 2009-2010 season, forming a quick guard tandem with Gerald Fitch.

Was a star through his junior year at Louisville and was considered a lock to go in the 1st round in the 2005 NBA draft. Decided to go back to school for his senior year and fought through an ankle injury the whole year. As a result of the injury Taquan went undrafted in the 2006 NBA draft. Started his pro career in the Italian league, then transferred to the Russian league with Dynamo Moscow. Taquan can get to the hoop off the dribble but needs to work on his outside stroke. Has about a 1 or 2 year window of getting a good look from NBA teams, recently signed by Unicaja Malaga of the ACB league ,and the Euroleague exposure will be good for his chances of finding an NBA roster. The only problem with Unicaja is, minutes could be slit between Omar Cook and Pooh Jeter, for Taquan.Transferred to Caja Laboral in January of 2010, to help their guard play. Moved on to Greece after Caja Laboral during the 2010 season to play with Kavala. Signed with Air Avellino of the Italian A league for the 2010-2011 season.

Played at Maryland and was voted to the second team All-ACC in his senior year. Lost some of his jumping ability when he tore his ACL early in his college career. Selected by Phoenix in the second round of the 2007 NBA draft. Traded to Houston then was released. Joined the Italian league with Fortitudo Bologna in 2008, joining Greek low-post center Lazaros Papadopoulos. Darryl has very good defensive capabilities and if he concentrates on that part of the game, his points will come off steals and fast-break situations. If he works on his outside shooting Darryl can find his way into the NBA much like Diawarra of the Miami Heat, I think Darryl has more NBA ability than Diawarra has shown. Joined Reno of the D-League for the 09-10 season. Signed with Lietuvos Rytas in mid January 2011. Signed with Hapoel Jerusalem in Israel for 2011-12 season.

Was selected in the second round of the 2003 NBA draft by the Atlanta Hawks. Hansen has real NBA ability, the Hawks were just a bad fit at that stage of his early pro career. Played for Spanish power TAU from 2004 to 2006. Transferred to Dynamo Moscow of the Russian league where he joined Antonis Fotsis and Lazaros Papadopoulos to make up an explosive scoring trio. Hansen has the ability to hit the 3 pointer and also has good leaping ability who can dunk on big-men. Hansen is also an above average defender. A playoff caliber team should have taken a hard look at Travis in years past, he could have been a key reserve to a playoff push. I look at Sasha Vujacic on the Lakers who plays no defense and is a streaky shooter, Travis deserves NBA minutes over Sasha. Recently signed with ACB power Real Madrid for the 2010 season. Signed with Khimki in Russia for the 2010-11 season.

After a great scoring year in Turkey, Gary joined Spanish power FC Barcelona but their structured system and overall depth was a bad fit for Gary's offensive minded game. Gary is now the starting 2 guard in Italy on Benetton's squad. Has definate NBA scoring ability, especially on a free- flowing type of offense such as Phoenix or Golden State. Probably will not get a look at this stage of his career, so an ACB big pay day should be his target. Moved to Spain with Unicaja in April. Signed by the Spurs in the NBA for the 2010-11 season.

Calathes-- Lokomotiv -- Russia
Joined Florida University
after there national champion season. Had 2 quality seasons in the SEC and opted to go pro at a young 20 yr. old age. Was drafted in the second round of the NBA draft in 2009 by Minnesota and his rights were traded to Dallas. Nick might have been a 1st round pick ,but since he opted to sign with Greek power Panatinaikos for 3 years, teams just wanted his rights. The money he signed  with in Greece ,was equal to an early lottery pick in the NBA draft. Minutes could be tough, especially in his 1st year on this deep and savy squad. Playing for 3 years in the Euroleague and the Greek league should have Nick more than ready to enter the NBA at the age of 23 playing infront of the loudest crowd in the world. Playing for the senior Greek national team in the 2009 eurobasket tournament in Poland, along with Kosta Koufos,as the veteran Greek squad attempts to go to more of a youth movement. Helped Panathinaikos win the Euroleague title in 2010-11 season and played well as the lead point-guard for the Greek national team at Eurobasket 2011.

Khalid moved to the French league and then on to the Ukrainian league where he won league MVP in 2006 and a league championship. Signed with Turk Telecom of the Turkish league in 2007. Defense is a problem for Khalid as he let a 17 yr. old Ricky Rubio score a career high 29 pts. against him, in a fast-break track meet. Khalid arrived in the NBA, 10 yrs. too early, and could be a Jameer Nelson type of player, but in that era of the NBA was hurt by his lack of size and inconsistent jump shot. Signed with Ukrainian team  Budivelnyk Kyiv for the 2009-2010 season. Signed with Lietuvos Rytas of the Euroleague and Lithuania for the 2010-2011 season. Was having a great year with Lietuvos Rytas in 2010-11, but a bad knee injury stopped his season.

38.  6' 3"  180   1983   Utah State  Jaycee Carroll- Real Madrid- Spain 
Played at Utah State University where he was a big-time scorer becoming the schools All-time leader in points and 3 point makes. He went undrafted in the 2008 NBA draft, due mostly to his size as a combo type of guard. Played in NBA summer leagues in 2008 and then played in Italy with Teramo Basket before finding his niche with Gran Canaria of the ACB Spanish league where he has become a go to scorer. Played with Boston in their 2010 summer league but returned to Gran Canaria where he has kept his big scoring numbers and great outside stroke going in the 2010-2011 season. At 27 years of age, Jaycee might have one more shot at an NBA job, but being a limited minute guy instead of being the man with the ball might not be the way he should go and instead look to a big European deal in Spain, Greece or Italy. Had anther big scoring year with Gran Canaria in 2010-11, leading the deep ACB league in scoring and landing a big name club in Real Madrid for the 2011-12 season. Thirty point games will not show up as often, but a chance at an ACB and Euroleague crown is worth less shots.

Was a legitimate top 5 pick after his sophmore season at Maryland, but after a so-so junior and senior season, he fell to the 33rd pick in the 2001 NBA draft, selected by the Hawks, his rights were traded to Houston, where he played 2 seasons, averaging 3.7 pts. per game in bench minutes. Played for Patras of the Greek league, before returning to the NBA, with the Magic in 2005-2006. Returned to Europe, with Hapoel in Israel in 2006-2007 and moved on to Israeli power Maccabi Tel-Aviv, where he had a breakout season earning 1st team All-Euroleague honors in 2007-2008. After the only good year he has had since his sophmore year in college, Morris chose to sign with a deep CSKA team and his minutes were cut from his good Maccabi year minutes. Signed with an even deeper front-line in the ACB league for the 2010 season, with FC Barcelona, could have a good year playing with a point guard like Rubio, who likes finding the open big man. FC Barcelona did not resign Morris for the 2011-12 season.

Played his college ball at Kentucky, where he was an ALL-SEC freshman selection, and had a fine career, at the big-time school. Gerald went undrafted in the 2004 NBA draft and played in the Ukrainian league, he then got a shot at the NBA, as the 3rd string point-guard of the Heat, but could never get his rythm, in up and down minutes.He tried to make the Wizards and the Pistons, but wound up with NGC Cantu of the Italian league. He joined Fuenlabrada of the ACB league in Spain,for the 2009-10 season, and has picked up, right where Brad Oleson left off with Fuenlabrada, last season. He is attacking the paint, and using his bigman Estiban Batista, to work off nicely. Has had a 41 point and a 33 point game thus far, and should be a hot name next season, by big name clubs in Europe, but he should make sure his minutes are definite, something Brad Oleson, might be rethinking on a deep Caja Laboral team. Signed with Aliaga in December to play in the Turkish league in 2010. After afew games in Turkey, Fitch signed with Unicaja in January for the rest of the 2010-11 yr.

45.  6' 5"  210  1985  Florida State   Von Wafer---Vanoli- Italy - NBA Boston- China
Von was the 39th pick in the 2005 NBA, by the Lakers, he has also played with the Clippers, Nuggets, Blazers and Rockets, in the NBA, where he had a break-out year in Houston, as he scored 9.7 points in 20 minutes of play, shooting 45% from 3 point range. He was a free-agent last summer and went the Josh Childress route, by signing a 2 year, 10 million dollar deal with Greek power, Olympiacos. The deep roster, was not a good fit for Von, as he was waived in December 2009. Von can help many NBA teams, but his style of play did not fit the Olympiacos, inside-outside play. He is very good in an open court game. Signed by the Boston Celtics in the NBA for the 2010-11 season. Signed with Vanoli for the 2011-12 season, where he can be a go to guy.

Edgar Sosa was a high-school All-American player out of Rice high-school in New York City and went to play at Louisville University, where he was a good scorer and had a 31 point game in the NCAA tournament against Texas A&M. He went undrafted by NBA teams mostly due to his size and played for the Pistons at the 2010 summer league.

Agreed to play with Montenegranaro for 2011-12 in Italy, but broke his leg playing with the Dominican national team at FIBA Americas 2011 in Argentina and should be out at least 6 months.

52.  6' 9"   265  1984  North Carolina- Sean May- Paris Lev. -- France
Played college ball at North Carolina where he won a national title, scoring 26 points in the title game, on 10-11 FG and was the 13th pick in the 2005 NBA draft by the Bobcats. His NBA career was slowed by a knee injury, but played with the Bobcats from 2005-09 and with the Kings in 2009-10. After years of being on the disabled list and trying to get back into the right condition, May signed with Turkish power Fenerbahce in December 2010, where he will give them minutes in the paint. The fewer games will be better on his knee and with the right workout program, could get back to his college type of play because he is still young enough to show his total game. Did not get great minutes with the deep Fenerbahce squad, but signed with Zagreb in Croatia for 2011-12 and should get more playing time.

53.  6' 8"  200  1984  HIGH SCHOOL- Gerald Green- Kr. Krilya- Russia -- NBA Nets - Pacers
Started his pro career right out of high school in 2005 with Boston as he was taken with the 18th pick of the 1st round after becoming an All-American player and winning the high school slam dunk contest. He also won the 2007 NBA slam dunk contest and had tremendous athlectic ability, but never really figured out the shooting guard spot in the NBA. After time with Boston, Minnesota, Houston and Dallas, he moved to the Russian league where he has become a big scorer and made him a more complete player because of the zone defenses he has to play against. If he gets another shot at the NBA, the time in Europe with Lokomotiv and Kr. Krilya served him well, with his improved jumpshot.
