Re: 13 = 13 Status

Fakira has gone home. He will not be back. And no we will not necessarily be taking a guard for the last spot. The coaches feel they have something really special going, especially if Queta comes back and they do not want to rock the boat. I'm not even sure what this means. We're going to have 13 s...

He came from Europe. Do you really think he came to the US to play for one year and enter the draft only to go back to play in Europe? I doubt it.

Re: Queta

I wonder if the typical agent advice is to test the NBA waters, but if the player doesn’t get drafted, he should go pro in Europe to focus full time on basketball while he (and the agent) gets paid. If someone of Queta’s caliber is likely to develop as well or better while playing for a solid pro te...
