1. Lynn  Greer-- 6' 2"  180  1979  Temple-- Azovmash
-- Ukraine
Played for legendary coach John Chaney at Temple University. Played for the Bucks in the NBA, can do alot of the same things J.J Barea does in Dallas. Was offerred a huge guaranteed contract with Olympiacos of Greece. Played in European Final Four with teammate Josh Childress in 2009. Many  current NBA bench players  could never have scored 24 points per game, as Lynn did early in his European career. Greer is better than many backup point guards on benches in the NBA.  Signed with Fenerbache Ulker of the Turkish League for 2010 season. Helped Fenerbahce win the 2009-2010 Turkish title. Played with Fenerbahce in 2010-11, but moved to Italy with A.J Milano in mid January. Signed with UNICS Kazan in Russia for the 2011-12 season. Signed with Azovmash for the 2012-13 season to compete in Ukrainian league and VTB United league play.

2. Pat Calathes-- 6' 10"  225  1985  St. Joseph's-- Maccabi Haifa-- Israel
Played at St.Joseph's for Phil Martelli. A very good outside shooting big man who has Greek heritage, thus he was signed in the Greek league by the 4th best team Maroussi. Pat saw limited minutes in 2009 sitting behind higher priced veterans, but the team is cutting salaries so he will get an increased role in 2010, due to the veteran lineup at Maroussi. Resigned with Maroussi for the 2010 Greek season, where he will play against his brother Nick, who signed with Greek power Panathinaikos. Helped Maroussi take 3rd place in the Greek league. In the summer of 2010 he moved on to Greek A1 team Kolossos and had breakout games of 34 and 36 points and averaged 14.3 points and 8.1 rebounds. Signed with Greek and Euroleague championship team Panathinaikos in July 2011 where he will play with brother Nick. Signed in Israeli league for 2012-13 season with Maccabi Haifa, where he should get more offensive looks and play big minutes, like he did early in his pro career with Maroussi.

3. Matt Walsh-- 6' 6"  205  1982  Florida-- - Spirou- Belgium-
Played for Florida University. Was let go by the Miami Heat and went to a lower-level Greek A1 league team and scored very well. I look at Bonner for the Spurs or Scalebrine on Boston and think Matt could stick in NBA on right situation. Matt is more of a wing player so European leagues are his ultimate destiny. Signed with Euro-League Slovenian team Union Olimpija for 2010 season. Moved on to Aris of the Greek league in Feb. Played in the Greek playoffs in 2009-2010 against a deep Olympiacos squad for Aris. Signed with ASVEL in France for 2010-11. Signed in the ACB Spanish league with Murcia for the 2011-12 season, where he should get good minutes. Signed with Spirou in Belgium for the 2012-13 season, where he could get good scoring numbers up again, as he should be a go to guy.

4. Scottie Reynolds-- 6' 2"  195  1987  Villanova-- Enel Brindisi - Italy 
Played for Jay Wright at Villanova. Became the 2nd leading scorer in Villanova history and was named to the All-American team in his senior year. Hit a huge running shot to beat PITT and send Villanova to the Final Four in his junior season. Played with the Suns in the 2010 summer league after not being drafted in the 2010 NBA draft. NBA teams think he is too small for the off guard spot and not a true point guard. Has great scoring ability and in the right system he could find a spot, but he chose to take a big deal from the 2nd division league in Italy. The big money deal is great and the 2nd division in Italy is better than many other European leagues, but a guy with the rep of Reynolds should have found a Euroleague team to play with for the better competition level and for NBA teams to keep a good eye on him. In November he decided to leave Italy and try his hand in the NBA D-League to have a better shot at NBA. After the D-League he joined the Philippine league. Ended the 2011-12 season playing with Turkish TBL team Antalya and played well enough to get a deal in the Italian A league for the new 2012-13 season with Enel Brindisi.

5. Joe Crispin-- 6' 0"  200  1979  Penn State-- Azovmash-- Ukraine - Available
Played at Penn State out of Pitman N.J. A big time scorer in the Turkish league 2009, played one year for the Lakers. Also Played in Italy, Greece, Spain and Had more scoring ability than some backup lead guards  of the NBA and should have been given another shot at NBA at some point in his career. Signed in the Lega Due with Sigma Barcellona for the 2010-2011 season. Signed with Azovmash in the Ukraine for the 2011-12 season and will compete in Eurocup play.

6. Rodney Green-- 6' 4"  190  1988  LaSalle- Novipiu Casale- Italy Lega 2

Played for LaSalle University and a Philadelphia native. Was named to Philadelphia Dailey News 1st team ALL-City team and led his high school Prep Charter to the Pa. state title in his senior year. Improved every year at LaSalle, finishing his senior year scoring 18.5 points per game. Signed in Israel and has great driving ability, but his 26.5%(3PT) in his senior year at LaSalle must get better to get big minutes in his 1st pro season. Moved to Ironi Ashkelon in Feb. 2011 in Israel from Galil Gilboa. Moved to the Ukraine with Mykolaiv for 2011-12 season. Signed with Novipiu Casale for the 2012-13 season of the Italian Lega 2 league. Novipiu might pay better money than some teams, but for Rodney to be visable to NBA scouts, an A league in Europe versus better overall talent might be way to go.

7. Allan Ray-- 6' 2"  205  1984  Villanova-- Ratiopharm -- Germany
Played at Villanova for Jay Wright and thrived in his small ball enviorment. Tried to stick with the Boston Celtics but his size at 6 foot 2 inches is a problem in the NBA. Needs to establish himself in the Italian league before a high level Spanish team looks at him. Played for Lottomatica Roma last year, averaging 12.9 pts. in 9 games, then transferred to Ferrara  and averaged 15.5 pts. in 15 games of Italian league play. Sat the 2009-2010 season out, due to a knee injury and just signed with Montegranaro for the 2010-2011 season of the Italian league. Signed with Krka in Slovenia in November for 2011-12. Left Krka and signed in the French LNB league with Pau orthez for the 2011-12 season. Signed with Ratiopharm of the German BBL A league, where he should be a big scorer.

8. Dionte Christmas-- 6' 5"  205  1986  Temple-- AGOR - Greece - Boston NBA
Played his high school ball in Philadelphia and stayed home to play college ball at Temple University. After a slow start in his freshman year, Christmas led the Atlantic 10 conference with 20 points per game in his sophmore year. He ended his college career with 2,043 points and became only the 4th player in Temple basketball history to go over 2000 points. Dionte was not drafted and was waived late in the preseason by the 76ers and signed to play ball in Israel with Hapoel Afula. He picked up where he left off at Temple U, and averaged an outstanding 19.5 points per game in the Israeli league using his fine jumpshot to shoot a good FG percentage. He played for the Kings in the 2010 Las Vegas summer league and averaged 6.6 points per game in 14 minutes of play, shooting 52.4 on FG and 33.3 percent on 3 pointers. Dionte has the stroke from the outside to make the NBA, but he might want to go the path of a Drew Nicholas who has made big money playing for Panathinaikos. If Dionte goes back to Europe, I would like to see him on an upper mid-level ACB team to get consistent minutes and could be signed by a Spanish or Greek power the next year. Signed in the Turkish league with Mersin in the summer of 2010 and good scoring numbers could get him a look from Efes Pilsen or Fenerbahce. Moved from Turkish league to Adriatic league with Nymburk in 2011 and moved to his 3rd team with PAOK in April. His nice work at PAOK got him a look from AGOR for the 2011-12 season. Had a big scoring year in Greece in 2011-12, scoring 41 points versus Euroleague and Greek champions Olympiacos that got him a look from the Houston Rockets, but took a deal with the Boston Celtics instead, that if he plays well in training camp and preseason could help him grab an NBA roster spot. If Boston lets him go, Dionte still could go the Drew Nicholas route of playing for good money in Europe, as he had big money deal offers after his good year in Greece, but went with Boston to acheive his NBA dream.

9. Zack Rosen-- 6' 1"  170  1989  U. of PENN-- Hapoel Holon - Israel
Played at University of Pennsylvania for former NBA and European league guard Jerome Allen, Zack Rosen played high school ball at St. Benedict's in New Jersey and became an All-time great at PENN. Rosen was the only 3 time captain at PENN and is the All-time assist leader, games started leader and minutes played leader and is 3rd in the history of PENN in scoring. Was the IVY league player of the year in 2012 and a 3 time first team selection in 2010, 2011 and 2012. With the right NBA team, Rosen could stick in the league, as another IVY league point-guard Jeremy Lin out of Harvard signed a huge money NBA deal and Rosen can do alot of the same stuff on the court, with his ability to score the ball and shot 40 percent from the 3 point line in his senior season. Rosen signed with Hapoel Holon in the Israeli league for 2012-13 season and if an NBA spot is not in his future, Rosen has all the tools to make big money in Europe on a Spanish ACB team or Maccabi Tel Aviv in future years.

12.   6' 7"   225   1984   Villanova-- Curtis Sumpter-- Maroussi- Greece- Tulsa D-League
Started his pro career in Germany after a fine career at Villanova University and probably would have made an NBA roster as a tough glue guy if it were not for a knee injury in 2005-2006 that caused Villanova to red-shirt him. He is now playing in the French league with Vichy for the 2010-2011 season and will help them in tight games with good defense and rebounding. Moved to the Greek league with Maroussi late in the 2010-11 season. Has played for 3 teams in France along with Hainut in Belgium, before his move to Tulsa for the 2012-13 season with the D-League.

13.  6' 6"   215   1986   Villanova- Dwayne Anderson- Oliver Baskets- Germany
Played at Villanova University for Jay Wright who loves to play small ball with his guards and was a major part of their success, along with the many other guards that are now playing pro ball in Europe. Is now playing pro ball in Germany with BG Gottingen and is a hard noised tough player in the mold of Curtis Sumptner from the wing position. With a good year in Germany and in Eurocup play of scoring big numbers, an Italian, Spanish, Greek or Russian league team may give him a bigger pay day next season. Signed in Italy for the 2011-12 season with Piacenza. Moved to the German BBL league with Oliver Baskets for the 2012-13 season.

15.  6' 4"   195   1990     Temple U. - Juan Fernandez- Brescia - Italy Lega DUE
Former Temple University and European league point guard Pepe Sanchez convinced fellow Argentinian point-guard Juan Fernandez to play at Temple University and had a very good sophmore season scoring 12.6 points per game, shooting 45 percent from 3 point land and after a down 33 percent stroke from the 3 point line in his junior year, Fernandez picked his deep stroke back up to 43 percent in his senior season, while scoring 11.2 and 11.1 points in junior and senior year. Solid floor leader but his game translates more to European leagues than NBA game. Signed with EA7 Milano in Italian A league for the 2012-13 season, but will play with Brescia of the Lega DUE league on loan. With good play, he could be in the EA7 lineup later in the year or next season to play against better talent.  Juan Fernandez will be a big part of the Argentinian senior national team soon, as Manu Ginobili and Pablo Prigioni are both getting older and the young guys might get their shot.

Played his high school ball at St. Josephs Prep in Philadelphia for Speedy Morris and became the schools All-time leading scorer and went to Villanova. A team player who has good defensive ability and had some good scoring games while at Villanova. Can get into the lane for tough layups while also being able to stick the 3 point shot.  Can be a good glue-guy type of player in a higher level European league in later years. For now Cyprus is good for his development but the time at Villanova and his Big-East time will help him blend into better leagues. Signed in Germany with Walter Tigers for the 2011-12 season and is still with the team at start of 2012-13 season.

Ronald Flip Murray is a player who learned his game in Philadelphia playing for Strawberry Mansion high school and the legendary Sonny Hill summer leagues, that have provided many NBA players over the years. He did not go to a big-name University, but did enough at Shaw to get selected in the 2nd round of the 2002 NBA draft by the Bucks. Flip is a combo-guard who can hit the deep jumper as well ass take his man off the dribble for creative drives to the hoop. He has played for 8 NBA teams and averaged 9.9 PTS in 22.7 minutes in his career. After playing with the Bulls last year, Flip waited for an NBA team, but took the chance to sign in Turkey with Efes Pilsen for the remainder of the 2010-11 season, where he will give them added scoring punch in top 16 Euroleague play and TBL play where he will battle with Fenerbahce and others for a chance at the TBL title. In training camp of the Bobcats in the NBA for the 2012-13 season.

30. Ibrahim Jaaber-- 6' 2"  175  1984  Pennsylvania-- Zalgiris -- Lithuania
Started his pro career in the Greek league for a mid-level team, and was the leagues leading scorer, using his quickness to get to the rim. He transferred, mid-season to a higher profile European team, in Lottomatica Roma of the Italian league. Lottomatica Roma, is the same team, that high school star, Brandon Jennings signed with. but Brandon Jenning's camp, should have done some homework, because Jaaber took the  young players minutes. Jaaber was just a more complete ballplayer at the time, who already knew the system, and showed more hustle at the defensive end of the court. Jaaber has improved rapidly since college, and has a chance to be a quality back-up point guard in the NBA in the next year or two. Started the 2009-2010 season real strong but fell off alittle at the end of the year, as Lottomatica lost in the quarterfinal round of the Italian playoffs. Played for the Lakers in the 2010 Las Vegas summer league, but did not shoot the ball well in 3 games and went back to Italy to take a 2 year 1.2 million euros deal with A.J Milano. He is a good pressure defender that gets many steals and still could be in the NBA. Was with Rockets , but signed in Europe for the 2012-13 season with Zalgiris in Lithuanian league play and Euroleague play.

32. Steven Smith-- 6' 9"  245  1983  La Salle-  SAI3 Bologna-- Italy
Played at Lasalle University. Had a chance with the Sixers of the NBA, ended up in the Greek league on a lower-level A1 team. Steve was the star on this team Kolossos Rodou and consistently scored high numbers becoming the leading scorer in the Greek league 2009, but he tore his achilles tendon after 23 games in the Greek league. It will be a tough road back for recovery but 1 or 2 more years in the tough blue collar Greek league, with Kolossos would be good for Steven's chances of catching on with a higher level Greek team, or an ACB power. His dream of the NBA was within his grasp until this injury. Signed late in the 2009-2010 year in Israel and in 11 games he showed good minutes averaging 17 points per game. Signed to play with EWE Oldenburg of the German A league for the 2010-2011 season. Moved back to the Greek league after 12 games in Germany to sign with Panellinios. Signed with Euroleague champions Panathinaikos for the 2011-12 season. Moved to Bologna of the Italian A league for the new 2012-13 season, where he should get more looks on the offensive end than he got with Panathinaikos.

33. Sean Singletary-- 6' 0"  185  1985  Virginia-- Mons-Hainaut- Belgium - Available
Played college ball at the University of Virginia, where he was an All-ACC freshman 1st team selection. Finished an outstanding college career as a 3 time All-ACC 1st team selection. Was selected with the 42nd pick in the 2008 NBA Draft, by the Kings, his rights were traded to Houston, and then on to Phoenix, where he played 13 games as a backup point guard to Steve Nash, but again was traded to the Bobcats as part of the Jason Richardson deal. He had some decent moments in 24 games, but could never fully get his rythym, in spot minutes. Signed with his hometown 76ers, for the 2009 preseason, but was waived due to the guaranteed deals already in place. He could have helped the 76ers, especially when Lou Williams was lost for 2 months, because of his true point-guard mentality, they have been missing. He was signed by ACB power Caja Laboral in November, due to the injuries they had with Brad Oleson. Sean is splitting minutes at the point. with this deep team, and might have been better signing with a lower level ACB team, as even Lior Eliyahu and Brad Oleson, have learned that minutes are tough to come by on this team. As a point-guard, he has many weapons to pickup assists from, and with this year and 2 more good ACB seasons, he could be back in the NBA, with the right team. The choice of Caja Laboral hurt Sean in his minutes as he and Carl English and Brad Oleson had reduced roles in the regular season. Signed with Dexia Mons- Hainaut for the 2011-12 season and will compete in Eurocup.
