Summer League & Other News

I look for Psycho T to have a huge Summer League but his stats will diminish once the regular season begins.

- The Orlando Pro Summer League started today but I'm sorry to say there are no Aussies on any of the rosters. Click here to check out the days boxscores.

- The Australian Emus moved a step closer to securing a spot in the medal round of the World u/19 Championships. The Emus defeated Argentina 76-65.

He is making me a believer these days. Cody Ellis led the Aussies again with another solid performance of 16pts and 8rebs. Point guard Jason Cadee and Brock Motum also had 16 apiece.

Next up is Croatia.

- The New Zealand Tall Blacks are targeting Cairns product Aron Baynes (via Washington State) for their national team.

If I'm Baynes and I have international aspirations, I go for it. Australia is loaded at the forward position with the likes Bogut, Andersen, Nielsen, Jawai and Schenscher.

- Ian Crosswhite has re-signed with the Cairns Taipans. Crosswhite produced some solid numbers after the Taipans lost their Coach Alan Black and several key players due to their financial troubles.

- It is now official, Stephen Hoare has signed with the Townsville Crocodiles.

This blog hinted at this happening quite some time ago.

- Thanks to Twitter the world discovers Charlie Villanueva signs with Detroit.

- Shawn Marion to the Dallas Mavericks?
