DJO got picked up by Le Mans in the French A League .  He is coming off a bad Achilles injury in March, so don’t know how much of his explosiveness is going to be there at this point in his recovery . He did log 17 minutes with 3 assists and 1 point in his first game , so he is out there trying.

Love how the article points out that while he is talented, he is only 1.8 meters tall.
Have some patience, FFS.

This is awesome for Markus.  Arguably the best non-NBA league, and EuroLeague is the cream of the crop of international basketball.  He's gonna have a ton of visibility there.  His best chance to stay on NBA radars while making really good money.  Mike James, arguably the top American scoring guard in Europe the last 7-8 years, played for Baskonia for a few seasons shortly before getting his NBA looks.

I thought he could be a Shane Larkin type export.  Here's his chance.  Baskonia's leading scorer left in the offseason so points are there.

Lots of good perspective there, Wags. Thanks.

I had to laugh at the first response to this tweet (translation by google): “A brutal scorer, very good defender, I have never seen him play in my life”

Vander and DJO taking time off from their Foreign pursuits to train for TBT. I think Jamil is still playing in Puerto Rico

Highlights for Jamil from his Puerto Rican season. Seems like the home fans got revved up when he made solid plays

Varies quite a bit.  However, it was mentioned during a TBT game that some veteran players choose to stay there rather than play in the NBA.  They can do better than the NBA minimum and get perks like cars and houses.  That is at the top level of course.  Most do not do that well.  But you can make a nice six-figure income there and be well set if you do not spend it on jewelry and cars and women.

10 minutes of fade away jump shots.
He has evolved to the "old man" game.
Not sure he could jump over the Peoria telephone book.

With all due respect, nobody is choosing to stay there over the NBA.  The NBA minimum is basically $2MM.  There are less than 10 guys making that in Europe.  The only Euro guys staying there would be out of the NBA in a year or 2 and stay where they can make $1MM for the next 5+ years

Travis did. He picked star in Europe over NBA bench warmer and trade fodder. I'm sure he's not the first nor last to make that choice.

Some clarification needed here. Travis was at the point of his NBA career where he had no contract and was looking at the life of a player hoping to catch on mid season with 10 day contracts . He left while he had enough value to get to a strong European team and make consistent money (less than NBA), rather than be a vagabond NBA with no consistent job.

Henry Ellenson has done that exact same thing .

I think his exception statement includes Travis:  "The only Euro guys staying there would be out of the NBA in a year or 2 and stay where they can make $1MM for the next 5+ years"
