    There are a handful of NBA players heading to Israel when the lockout drags into the NBA season: Jordan Farmar and Omri Casspi are the big names. (Note, I’m not even saying “if” games are lost anymore because it seems unavoidable.) But they may be joined by a bigger name. In an article at the…

    While most of the major teams of Europe — the EuroLeague level teams — have shied away from signing NBA players Maccabi Tel Aviv has been the exception.

    Jordan Farmar

    David Stern is so, so concerned about how players signing overseas might impact the players union. He is such an empathetic guy. Don’t think there’s anything self-centered about his comments at all. Nope. He’s not saying that hoping to divide the union. It’s only out of genuine, heart-felt concern. But outside of D-Will, only one…

    Dee Brown has flitted around the edges of the NBA —  just in or just out –since he left Illinois four years ago (he was the other guy in the backcourt with Deron Williams). This year he wants back in and tweeted that he will be headed to the Dallas Mavericks training camp this fall.…

    Aug 22, 2010, 3:00 PM EST

    Mikhail Torrance went into this draft pick as an intriguing prospect — a 6’5″ point guard with some flash out of Alabama. But he also had a known heart condition — an enlarged heart — that had never slowed him in college but gave NBA teams pause and he went undrafted. He signed with Maccabi…

    Despite lacking notable second round depth, this year’s draft left a number of intriguing undrafted players to be picked up in free agency.

Among them is Mikhail Torrance, a tremendously…
