Bo McCalebb RumorsAll NBA Players
Considering the absence of injured Anton Gavel and captain Bryce Taylor, Bayern seems on the verge of signing Bo McCalebb. According to sources from Germany the former Fenerbahce/ Ulker and Siena guard is about to sign with the German club but only for one month.
Emiliano Carchia: A few reports in Italy say Olimpia Milano is the closest team to sign McCalebb. I dont have confirmation
Emiliano Carchia: Bo McCalebb is signing a contract with an Euroleague team, I am told. He is very close. I am trying to find out where. But now he is close
According to several sources, Partizan Belgrade started conversation with point-guard Bo McCalebb. The player is still a free-agent after his experience in Turkey with Fenerbahce.
With Jordan Crawford headed to China, the most marketable free agent remaining is Ray Allen, who is still trying to determine whether he wants to play this season. Several teams are interested, including Cleveland, Washington, Chicago, and the Los Angeles Clippers. One free agent to watch is former Fenerbahce Ulker guard Bo McCalebb, who helped Fenerbahce beat the Celtics in an exhibition game in 2012 in Istanbul. McCalebb had originally chosen to stay overseas because of a lucrative contract but has decided to give the NBA a shot. He could be a quality backup point guard .
Shams Charania: Bo McCalebb has become a free agent — no overseas deal burdening — and remains in discussions with several NBA teams, sources tell RealGM.
Bo McCalebb is officially free agent, his agent Eric Fleisher told Sportando. The American combo guard with passport from FYROM has played the last two years with Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul.
With one season remaining on his contract with Fenerbahçe Ülker of Turkey, European League star Bo McCalebb is more inclined than ever to pursue signing in the NBA and has several teams interested, sources told RealGM.
Several of McCalebb’s NBA suitors now are franchises that have maintained interest over the years, and a potential signing has been long-awaited. “It is the right time for a move to happen, and the stars are aligning for McCalebb with his contract and the interested teams,” one source with knowledge told RealGM. “It’s his best chance.”

Marc Stein: If Pels don’t trade D-League sensation today, Pierre Jackson will then team up with Bo McCalebb & Linas Kleiza at Fener as @Emiliano Carchia noted
Does it feel a little weird to be wearing this jersey? Pooh Jeter: No, because I never really got the chance to represent the U.S. When I received these colors I treated it the same way I treat playing for any other team: go out there, play hard and make sure I do my job. I’m thankful, it’s an honor. But I guess it’s a little different for you… For your Ukrainian-born teammates, it’s national pride at stake. PJ: They are probably used to seeing this. It’s been going on for a while: JR Holden representing Russia, Bo McCalebb (Macedonia), Dontaye Draper (Croatia), Zack Wright (Bosnia-Herzegovina)… It’s so many American point guards taking these spots… If I was a rookie coming out of school, it would probably be weird but I’m such a veteran in Europe and in this basketball world so we just treat it as just ‘Me coming to their team’.
In what will surely be one of the most important moves of the summer, Fenerbahce Ulker announced the signing of point guard Bo McCalebb to a three-year deal.
Emiliano Carchia: According to Il Corriere dello Sport, Fenerbahce is finalizing a deal with Bo McCalebb (I don’t have confirmation on that)
Emiliano Carchia: Spurs are interested in Bo McCalebb but the buyout is not satisfying for Mens Sana Siena
Emiliano Carchia: As per source, NBA teams showed interest in Bo McCalebb. He has no buyout in his contract and Siena wants to monetize at most his departure
Bo McCalebb released a long interview to Tuttosport. The PG of Mens Sana Siena didn’t want to talk about his future because he is too focused on the Serie A Playoffs who will start today with Montepaschi facing Cimberio Varese in the quarterfinals. “European basket is very tough. If we reach the final, we will finish the season at the end of June and on July 2 we have the first game of the Pre- Olympic Tournament. NBA? It is obvious that I would love to play there but this is not the right moment to think about that. I am too focused on Siena and the playoffs. My future? As I have just said, it is too early to talk. At the end of the season we will sit with Siena and talk” said McCalebb who has still contract with Montepaschi Siena for the next two years.
Emiliano Carchia: According to same rumors (Il Corriere dello Sport): Siena will keep David Andersen and Bo McCalebb (both have contracts).
Bo McCalebb said again, after the interview he had with HoopsHype, that his future is in Europe. Bo McCalebb was recently third in FIBA Europe Awards after Dirk Nowitzki and Juan Carlos Navarro.
“It is a huge honour for me that I have reached the podium in the awards right behind two great basketball champions. I am playing a very good basketball, I am happy for me and for my team. NBA? I am not thinking about that right now. It is not the right moment to move to the NBA. Siena is my priority. Everyone knows me here and I love talking to the people” said McCalebb, as reported by Il Corriere dello Sport.
Mark Woods: Dirk Nowitzki named FIBA Europe Player of the Year, ahead of Juan Carlos Navarro and Bo McCalebb
The success he continues to experience in Europe is sure to draw interest from the NBA next summer. The explosive 6-foot guard could help a lot of teams bringing a scoring spark off the bench. If you ask McCalebb, though, the NBA can keep waiting for him. “I’m going to be in Europe next season,” McCalebb told HoopsHype. “I’ve had success in Europe and I want to build on that. I’m getting comfortable here and maybe it’s not the right time to leave right now.”
