    As Prballer mentioned Alex Carmona will join the Pistons camp and will likely play for their affiliate in the NBDL

    Here's a rough translation from a PR article:


    "The runners-up of the NBA, Pistons de Detroit, will have to second Rican Port to player in the camping of veterans, according to informed yesterday to director into the organization. This one will be eaves Alexander "Bimbo" Carmona, who will go to his first experience in a camping of the NBA. "We plows going to invites it to our camping of veterans", expressed yesterday the international director of listening of the Pistons, Tony Ronzone, to the New Day. The training will give to beginning the 3 of October, indicated Ronzone. There, Carmona will accompany its compatriot, the to shipbuilder Carlos Stream, that already there are to safe space in the group. Carmona would go in search of to space in roster, and Ronzone understands that I have "there are" chance "" to do it. "Everything depends on him", aimed. Detroit there are followed him the passages east Carmona to year. Its defensive intensity you have been the characteristic dwells praised by Ronzone in several occasions. Even, the organization of the Pistons hoped to see it play in the Premundial match in Dominican Republic. But, an injury in ingle to last hour you remove it from the national combined one. Anyway, the listening of for Detroit Latin America, the Argentinean Guillermo Vecchio, showed that to her organization followed interested in inviting it to the camping.

While, the agency that represents Carmona in the Island informed the day before yesterday that the small forward is directed to sign in League of Development of NBA (NBDL) by to recommendation of the organization of the Pistons.

    Carmona is 6' 5" SG/SF
    He was caught smoking dope but was let off due to a testing technicality.

    That is a funny translation!!!!:eyebrows: It's funny too that it translate CA last name to "Stream" which is English for "arroyo" ( the water body). Carmona was indeed caugh smoking pot about 3 years ago when he wasplayin for the Mayaguez Tainos at the PR league. He was then traded to Bayamon and later he made the National Team. Average shooter, he can jump out of the building and he's good slashing to the hoop.

    "I a.m. going It to send under that there am spends Time with him"

    I understood that to mean: "I think people need to give Darko more time. The Serbian culture has not provided the youngster with enough bloodflow in blowout appearances over the last two years. When the young Serb was growing up, he practiced for hours upon hours with bombs going off within feet of his practice court. He will be a star someday. Trust me. I have spent time with him."
