Andray Blatche signs deal to play in China next season

wpid andray blatche nets5 Andray Blatche signs deal to play in China next season Getty Images

Andray Blatche was a key rotation player for a Nets team that made it to the second round of the playoffs last season, but Brooklyn made a decision fairly early on that it wasn’t interested in re-signing him in free agency.

Way back in December, Blatche missed four games due to what the team referred to as personal reasons at the time, but later it was discovered that he was suspended due to “a lack of conditioning and preparedness.”

Blatche remained unsigned as he played for the Philippines national team this summer at the FIBA World Cup, and with most teams having already spent their salary cap dollars elsewhere, he decided to give China a shot next season instead.

From ASM Sports:

Official: @drayblatche has signed a 1 year deal with the Xinjiang Guanghui Flying Tigers.

The Flying Tigers made the CBA finals last year and the club feels Andray is the final piece to a championship contender.

Andray is extremely excited to be joining a 1st-class club & looks forward to building relationships throughout the Pacific Rim.

Blatche must’ve enjoyed being one of the best players on the floor in international play, and he’ll get in the neighborhood of $2.5 million for his troubles, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

The season in China ends in March, and at that point Blatche would be available to sign with a team for a stretch run into the playoffs. If all goes well overseas, expect Blatche to be back in the NBA, perhaps with a contender, before the postseason begins.

Last year in Brooklyn, Blatche averaged 11.2 points and 5.3 rebounds in 22.2 minutes per contest over 73 regular season appearances.

Report: Former NBA player Rex Chapman arrested for stealing product from Apple store

 Report: Former NBA player Rex Chapman arrested for stealing product from Apple store Rex Chapman, Ashley Judd

Rex Chapman had an NBA career that spanned 12 seasons, including from 1997-2000 as a member of the Phoenix Suns.

It’s never pleasant to hear that things have gone south for a former player who had amassed more than $22 million in career earnings, but evidently, here we are.

From ABC15 in Arizona:

A former Phoenix Suns player was arrested Friday, accused of stealing thousands of dollars worth of merchandise from a Scottsdale Apple store.

Sgt. Mark Clark said Rex Chapman is alleged to have picked up items in the store, located near Scottsdale Road and Greenway,  and made it appear that he was paying for the items through the store’s self-checkout. He would then leave the store without actually paying for the items. …

Chapman is facing nine counts of organized retail theft and five counts of trafficking in stolen property.

The report goes on to say that there have been multiple incidents of shoplifting over the past several months, totaling over $14,000 in stolen merchandise.

Chapman’s NBA career ended in 2000, and featured stops in Charlotte, Washington, Miami and Phoenix. We heard from him most recently back in April, when he tweeted that John Calipari would be the next head coach of the Lakers.

Kobe Bryant may join ownership group attempting to purchase Italian soccer team

 Kobe Bryant may join ownership group attempting to purchase Italian soccer team Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant has two years left on his contract with the Lakers, and after playing just six games last season, it would seem reasonable to believe that once those two years have elapsed, that his time in the league will be done.

Since retirement from basketball is not all that far off, Bryant has an eye on what’s next, and regularly contacts titans of industry to pick their brains on how they built their businesses, and how they run their companies.

Bryant also grew up in Italy, where soccer is ingrained in the culture. And he may be looking to merge his childhood experiences with an upcoming business opportunity.

From Eric Pincus of the Los Angeles Times:

According to La Gazzetta, attorney Joe Tacopina is trying to put together an ownership team featuring the Lakers All-Star guard, along with Montreal Impact (MLS) owner Joey Saputo.

Bologna’s largest shareholder, Albano Guaraldi, is reportedly looking to sell the franchise, which has struggled in recent years.

It’s clear there’s a level of interest from Bryant here, but a lot goes into bidding for ownership of a sports franchise at the professional level. If it ends up not happening for some reason, at least he’s got a couple more seasons as a player to fall back on before he will truly need to fill the void with something else.

Timberwolves ‘not necessarily in a rush’ to agree to contract extension with Ricky Rubio

wpid 350x 424 Timberwolves ‘not necessarily in a rush’ to agree to contract extension with Ricky Rubio AP

The Timberwolves saw the face of their franchise in Kevin Love force his way out of town this summer, after he informed them that he wouldn’t re-sign in Minnesota once he became an unrestricted free agent next summer.

Ricky Rubio isn’t at that level as a basketball player, and may never get there. But he could similarly find himself wanting to leave if the team doesn’t come at him with a contract extension he feels is just.

Minnesota has until Oct. 31 to get a deal done, otherwise Rubio will enter restricted free agency once the season is finished. But Timberwolves general manager Milt Newton said recently that he doesn’t feel there’s any rush.

From The Associated Press:

Newton says he and Wolves President Flip Saunders are having regular conversations with Rubio’s agents about an extension. So far, the two sides have not agreed on terms. …

“We’re going to look at the situation the same way we did with Kevin (Love),” Newton said. “We’re going to do the best thing for the organization, and if we can get something done sooner, great. If not, we’re not necessarily in a rush.” …

“Going forward, you want to show good will and trust in a player,” Newton said. “So it can kind of go both ways whether you wait or do something now, but it has to be right for both sides.”

There wasn’t “a rush” to trade Love, because the deadline to do so was still six months away. And, as we’re seeing in Phoenix with restricted free agent Eric Bledsoe, bad blood can develop if time continues to elapse without a deal in place.

The situation with Rubio is a bit different, because while he’s a promising young point guard with dazzling court vision, his shot needs a lot of work before he could be considered valuable enough to offer any type of long-term, serious dollars. And, like Bledsoe, Rubio may find the market for his services much tighter than he or his agent may be envisioning when the time to seek out an offer sheet comes.

Minnesota has most of the leverage, but the risk of alienating a talented player here is real. If Rubio is absolutely in the franchise’s plans for the future, trying to get something done before Rubio amasses a highlight reel filled with him throwing lobs to Andrew Wiggins might be the best course of action.
