Rob Kurz: Rob is tearing it up right now for Granada in Spain. He is currently averaging 17 and 9.5 in the ACB, which is really good. The strange thing is that he has not hit a three yet, but I can guarantee that will change with his shooting ability. Rob's game is perfect for Euro ball, and I think this will be the start of a great Euro career for him. By the way, there are far worse places to be in the world than Spain!
Ryan Ayers: Ryan is in Finland playing for Namika Lahti, and he has gotten off to a very hot start. He is currently averaging 18.3 points per game and 8 rebounds. He is shooting a very hot 60 percent from the two region and 40 percent from three. So far, his team is 3-3, and I think Ryan is quickly staking his place as one of the best players in the league. Little known Finland fact: Ray Ailus -- head coach of KTP Basket Kotka -- and I played together in high school for the mighty Redmond Mustangs in Redmond, Washington. We lost in the finals of the state championship, a sting I have still not recovered from.
Larry Turner: Big LT has taken his talents to the Ukraine where he is playing for BC Odessa. He is currently averaging 7 and 4, but is shooting a way too low 41.4 percent from the field. He will have to improve that greatly if he wants to stick.
Jeremy Richardson: Jeremy has gone to play in Spain for Valencia, and it has not been a hot start for him. He is playing just 12 minutes a game and is only averaging 4 ppg. I saw Jeremy play this summer, and I have to say that his heart did not seem to be in it like it was when he was here and in the hunt for a NBA job. Let's hope this turns around for him.
Vernon Hamilton: Remember Vernon? He was here for a short time two years ago before we decided to make a change. He was a good player, but there just wasn't much time behind a guy like Walker. Well, he is currently in the Detroit Pistons training camp. He played last year for a bit in Switzerland before being released and moving to the Ukraine where he was eventually released again. I am sure he will get an opportunity again in this league or another after being in Pistons camp.
Taj McCullough: Taj is down in Australia playing for the Sydney Kings -- a great job for him. Their season has not started yet.
Kyle McAlarney: Kyle has just signed in Greece, but has not played a game yet.
Sammy Mejia: Remember Sammy? We had him for a spell our first season, and I thought he played very well for us. He is playing in Cholet (where a Penn State great -- and former teammate of mine -- Deron Hayes played) for the second straight year. He had a great year last year averaging 14 a game and Cholet won the championship. He started this year off hot by scoring 18 in a win.
