Pro Update 12-23

Posted by Josh on December 23, 2006

Ch-ch-ch-changes keep on comin’. We’ll start in Europe.

Preston Shumpert was released by Climamio Bologna after losing his starting job and lots of his minutes. But he was immediately signed by another Italian League team, Benetton Treviso, who also play in the Euroleague. It looks like Shump will not be eligible for Euroleague games, unless Treviso makes the playoffs, but he is eligible to play in Italian League contests.

Otis Hill had 23 points and 5 rebounds in European Cup play on Tuesday, then 11 points and 4 rebounds in Polish League action Friday. His team lost both games. Elvir Ovcina had just 3 points (0-8 from the floor) but 13 rebounds in a European Cup win for Telindus Oostende on Tuesday. They had a Belgian league game Friday but the score is not yet posted.

Gerry McNamara had 15 points and 5 assists in Bakersfield’s win over Tulsa on Friday night. The 5 assists was team-high; the 15 points was tied for 2nd on the team with two other guys (Bakersfield put 8 players in double figures!)


Hakim Warrick had 8 points (8-8 free throws) and 4 rebounds Friday night in a loss to the Hornets. This is on the heels of an 11-point showing vs. the Spurs on Wednesday. Jason Hart has not played in the Kings’ last two games.


Z Sims’ Rochester squad beat Kueth Duany’s Buffalo team on Wednesday. Rochester’s coach was ejected, so Sims took over as player-coach and got the win while scoring 15 points.
