Things didn’t work out for Henry in Detroit. Let’s hope he can get picked up by a g league team for the rest of this year .

Wild that just a couple years ago I think we hadn't the most guys in the NBA in my lifetime and now here we are with wade retiring and Henry getting waived leaving us with three and who knows how many more years Matthews has.

I'd say with Matthews at Indiana while Oladipo is out - he will get pretty good run there, probably for 2 years. 

Sounds like he's a real positive guy - based on Fizdale's comments.
https://nypost.com/2019/02/08/david-fizdale-gets-in-final-enes-kanter-jab-with-matthews-praise/

I hoped he'd get a chance with a contender - thought his D and 3 would really help a team like Golden State.

Henry Ellenson will be released soon. That might end his NBA career for a while
Pistons announced they were not picking up his option back in October. He's played 2 games for them this season. His NBA career could be over.

Europeans see basketball how we see soccer. MLS players aren't making six figures, at least last I checked

The MLS salary piece was already debunked, but not even close to true on professional appeal. Many places it’s second after soccer (Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey, former Soviet nations). Places like France, Germany, and Belgium have strong well followed leagues as well. Europe’s impact on professional and Olympic basketball dwarfs that of the US in international soccer

Hockey still number 2 in the former Soviet states I'd say but overall good point

Pistons officially release Henry.

I'm guessing they won't keep Wally now, either.

Henry Released and Diamond in the G-League

It's premature to already write the career obituary of any player good enough to be drafted into the NBA after one year of college basketball in 2016, but the 2015 co-Mr. Basketball recipients in Wisconsin have had a rough go.

Henry Ellenson, the former star at Rice Lake who spent one year at Marquette University, was waived by the Detroit Pistons over the weekend as the franchise swooped in to sign Wayne Ellington. The 2016 first-round pick, taken 18th overall, was the youngest player on the roster and is only 21 years old, but Detroit already made it clear in October that Ellenson wasn't in the organization's long-term plans.

DJO has been quietly having a very productive season for the Iowa Wolves. I realize it is the G League but the consistency has been there game after game. Has played several roles, PG, SG and even SF.

DJO anti doping suspension ends March 16. So the question is will he get called up by the T Wolves or will he go back and finish off the season back  in Italy  to make a few bucks?

Would be great if he could get a couple of 10 day contracts here.

Hadn't been following, so this made it sound performance enhancing.  But no, it was just dope.  Metabolized THC.

Excellent News for Henry. Hope he can play and get it renewed .

In the meantime DJO and the Iowa Wolves will be battling Vander and the Texas Legends Wednesday . Should be an instant G League classic .

With about 1 minute left in OT in tonight's Jazz-Thunder game, Jae stepped in and drew a charge on Westbrook for Westbrook's 6th foul. Clutch, heady play by one of my all-time favorite Warriors!

Delighted that Henry got a chance to play 36 minutes tonight. Hopefully he can build off of it.
