Chris Daniels RumorsAll NBA Players
Big man Chris Daniels, not Solomon Alabi, will be the one replacing Didier Ilunga-Mbenga on Qingdao Eagles, one source told HoopsHype. Chinese website 361 Sport had reported the former Raptor would be the one joining Tracy McGrady’s club, but that will not be the case. Daniels, a 6-foot-11 center, had been playing with the Santa Cruz Warrriors of the NBADL, where he was averaging 7.0 ppg and 5.7 rpg.
It’s unclear if the impending NBA lockout is causing teams to hold more free agent workouts or I’m just hearing about them for the first time this offseason, but the Indiana Pacers became the latest team to invite non-rookies in for a look-see this week. The Pacers are holding a two-day free agent camp that began Monday and will wrap up Tuesday afternoon. Through a source with knowledge of the workout, Ridiculous Upside has a partial list of the invitees. The guard prospects included Bobby Brown, Matt Janning, Javaris Crittenton and Sylven Landesberg. The wings participating include NBA veterans James White (better known as “Flight” because he can do this), DeMarre Carroll and Ime Udoka. As far as big men go, Rob Kurz, Leo Lyons, Chris Daniels and Trent Plaisted were all in attendance on Monday.
