Europeans ETA to the NBA

Has anyone heard about NBA Right Held Euro's coming to the NBA next season.
I know Jonas Valanciunas adn Dontas Motiejunas willl be in the NBA in 2012.
I've heard Freeland and Vazquez are 5050.
Lull will be over in 2013-2014 most likely.
Nikola 2014-2015

Anyone have any information on this topic?

nando de colo could be a spur

nando de colo could be a spur next year (it depends on the spus will to bring him).... he vastly improved last season.

Will Nando Play?

I did read that see link below. The Spurs are stacked. Do you think he will get any PT with Parker, Neal, Mills, and Joseph already on the team?

I think they want to make him play like ginobili (creative sg able to run the team as a potential pg)... he won't play much in his first year (as splitter) but he could after.

neal is an unrestructed FA and should get some money elsewhere, mills has a PO (worth 1M) and should be the back up next year, joseph as a 3rd pg will fight for garbage.

Fran Vazquez

It does not look like Fran Vazquez will ever come to the NBA as per the link below. It looks like he is using the Magic to secure a contract in Europe. I think if he does not sign a contract with the Magic this season he is likely to never come to the NBA.

Joel Freeland

Joel Freeland will most likely be NBA bound in 2012. He has not said one way or another but looking at the current situation of the Blazers they can really use a big man to join their roster. Freeland has yet to commit to his team in Europe and all indications point to him joining the Blazers next season.

him and claver could help the

him and claver could help the blazers rebuild their team (with batum and aldridge).... it would be a smart move to make them come.

I don't know which franchise

I don't know which franchise owns maciej lampe 's rights but it would be also a great move to bring him from caja laboral. He has shown he can be a serviceable back up.

6.11 / 242 - dob : 1985 - able to play c/pf

13 g 22 min 12.2 pts (55% 31% 64%) 4.8 reb (2 off) 1 st 1 ass 2.3 pf 1 to in a deep roster (seraphin played there during the lockout)

I believe he's already played

I believe he's already played in the NBA and from his stats below he was below average at best.

yes but he never really got

yes but he never really got his chance and PT (like gustavo ayon this year for example) and it was 7 years ago.

he really progressed during the last years and understands his role better. He could be useful .

I doubt that schortsianitis

I doubt that schortsianitis will come to the NBA ...he has a guaranteed 2mil.+ contract in a powerhouse (maccabi tel aviv) and he can find same moeny almost everywhere in europe

I agree he is another guy

I agree he is another guy that probably won't ever come over. If he signs another extension after this season there will be no way he ever plays in the NBA.

Plus with Schortsianitis, he

Plus with Schortsianitis, he was with the Clippers Summer League team in 2010 and i dont know if it means much but he was pretty bad. Can't imagine him ever playing in the NBA, nevermind the fact that he would make a hell of a lot more money overseas.

yesterday Nets GM was in Turkey watching Bogdanovic. Bogdanovic had 22pts, 3rbs, 2asists in 77-74 lose against Besiktas. He has option to get out of his contract after this season

I see Bogdanovic as a similar player to Linas Kleiza when he gets to the NBA. He should be a solid player.

Victor Claver

By all accounts Victor Claver will be on the Blazers in the 2012-2013 season.

...de colo is absolutely red

...de colo is absolutely red hot in this PO game against barcelone... he vastly developped his game since his arrival in valencia. He still got his playmaking, passing, shooting skills and his feel for the game but he is far more agressive and better in D.

He should become a nice addition to the spurs roster next year and could learn behind ginobili how to adjust his game to the nba. Moreover Valencia has already targeted some replacement for de colo (in france too) : fabien causeur the french mvp (lefty guard, shooting, offensive weapon with some pg skills).
