    This brother has been professionally for quite a while. He is listed as one of the best free agents in the Euroleague. He was sought after by several NBA teams. My question is, what the heck was he getting paid and how did the Pistons convince him to come to Detroit for so little money (in NBA dollars).

    I was impressed by that Youtube clip. He dunks a lot and he makes EVERY SINGLE SHOT.

    He reminds me of Delfino only 3 inches taller. He seems pretty versatile on the offensive end. Even in that video, he was making threes a variety of ways (pull-up, spot-up, step-back). His 3/4-court shot looks good. Reminds me of a forum member....

    Care to let me in on the chicanery? I'm obviously in the 10% on this one.
