    I honestly thought Babbit would have gone to Europe first but this is probably a good move for Nolan. The team he signed with in the Adriatic league went 2-8 last season so he'll get plenty of court time there. Bye Nolan, hello CJ!

    Lucky.  Croatia is beautiful and the wine and food is delicious.  The fan are fanatic as well. Nolan is a capable basketball player, I just didn't see him as a capable NBA basketball player.

    It is a beautiful part of the world and the wine there is incredible! Whenever I think of Croatia I think of Drazen Petrovic..for the young folks here, he was a Blazer in 1989 and died young in a car crash when he was a star for the Nets. Probably the best Croatian NBA player ever! I watched Goran Ivanisevic play a charity tennis match dedicated to Drazen, his best friend and now a HOF member, and he wore his Nets #3 jersey through the whole tournament. He's a legend in Croatia! Nolan is lucky to play there. I wish him well!

    If someone told me at Nolan's age that sorry, you can't play in Detroit or Cleveland or Oklahoma City, you're going to have to settle for a life and job on the Adriatic Sea and you'll have to play a lot of minutes but not so many games...uhh..ok, when do I leave?

    Good for Smitty, let's wish him the best of luck. Maybe he'll have to play against Rudy Fernandez? That would be an exciting match-up to watch.

    I wish Nolan the best also.  Nolan's a good guy :)

     

    Speaking of signings... I'm a little confused, we just signed Dee Bost (Dame's boi!  Hahaha! ;) as our 17th?, so he reports straight to the D-League?   Who is our 16th guy?

    T.Davis is out of here. I like Dee, that boy can play.

    @ commontongue, fo' sho!  I remember dude from last year's Summer League; I liked him & hoped we'd sign him then.  Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Bost will make it to our reg. season roster from what Casey says:

    "the addition of Bost brings the official roster to 17, so it's safe to assume this isn't a guaranteed contract, as the roster has to be trimmed to 15 by the start of the regular season. These signings happen ever year, if for no other reason than the team needs extra bodies for training camp. Damian Lillard and Mo Williams probably don't need the extra work in preseason."

     

    I hope that Bost will join the Stampede & then during the reg. season, when some guys might need a lot of seasoning down in the D-League or if trades/consolidation need to happen, Bost can get called up & he can have his NBA dream realized! :)

    I think thats the plan Simpson. Just in case CJ doesnt transition as smoothly as everyone thought.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
