The wandering Canadian (Pro Update January 2013)

As I sat around last night watching Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks go up against the Kris Joseph-free Celtics, I realized it’s time for another Pro Update. Here’s what’s been going on:
NBA
As mentioned above, Kris Joseph was cut by the Celtics earlier this month. In fact, he was cut just a few hours before his [...]

All your development are belong to SU (Pro Update Dec 2012)

It’s back! Your one-stop to learn all there is to know about former SU basketball players who are currently playing professionally somewhere or other. It’s been a long time since I’ve had the flexibility to put one of these together, so it’s a bit longer than usual. Plenty of content to peruse while you wait [...]

Pro Update - Kiwi Edition (Feb 2012)

Josh Pace is back in the land of sheep and hobbits!
Pace has signed on with the Manawatu Jets for the 2012 New Zealand basketball season. After leading the Hawkes Bay Hawks (seriously) to a runner-up finish in last season’s championship, Josh will join former Duke center Nick Horvath on the Jets this year. They brought [...]

Mini-Pro Update (Rautins Edition)

Quick note from the crumbling Spanish Empire. Andy Rautins made his season debut for Lucentum Alicante in their game of December 29. He played 11 minutes in the contest. He was 0-2 from the field, but hit 2 free throws and contributed 4 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 steals.
Also, Terrence Roberts suffered some type [...]

Pro Update December 2011

With the NBA season about to (finally) tip off, it’s time to revive our long-running-but-recently-deficient series of posts covering the professional basketball lives of former Orangemen. You probaby have heard the recent news about Andy Rautins being cut by the Mavs or Paul Harris wrecking the D-League on the stellar TNIAAM, but here we are [...]

Who on this Syracuse team would you want on your side in a knife fight?

When it comes to Syracuse basketball, I’m typically a creature of brazen overconfidence. Every preseason I get that “this could be the year” feeling that only blossoms as we mow through mid-major opponents and preseason tournaments in November and December. Then, over the course of every season, they provide the full dramatic range of hope, [...]

Whither Matt Gorman?? (Pro Update 1-7-11)

Sad but true. Matt “Matty-boy” Gorman is no longer playing professional basketball, at least not at the moment. He was not re-signed by the Sheffield Sharks for 2010-11, and there is no record of him playing for, or even signing with, another team. Yet.
But, who from Syracuse is still playing pro hoops, whether in this [...]

Orange Of The Year

Today Time Magazine announced their 2010 Man Of The Year. It’s Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, because Facebook is the most important thing in the world now. (Unrelated: please become a fan of Cuse Country on Facebook by clicking the “Like” button on the right.) Like most things I hear about on the news, I immediately [...]

And then there were none

Demetris Nichols got cut today by the Utah Jazz. Utah decided to go with the minimum roster size required by NBA rules, which is 13 players. Three other guys were cut in addition to Nichols; 2nd-round draft pick Jeremy Evans made the team. I guess Utah is in such financial straits that it makes more [...]

NBA Hopefuls Update

Don’t look so excited, Demetris.

Yes, it’s that time of year again. NBA training camp. Where guys who are used to being the best player on their own team are suddenly scrapping against each other for the honor of riding an NBA bench night after night. Not a few of these guys hail from the beacon [...]
