CJ Fair RumorsAll NBA Players
Free agent rookie C.J. Fair of Syracuse has received a training camp invitation from the Indiana Pacers and will sign a non-guaranteed contract with the franchise, league sources told RealGM. After four collegiate seasons, Fair went undrafted in June and played for the Dallas Mavericks in the Las Vegas summer league. The 6-foot-8 forward averaged four points and 2.6 rebounds in five games for Dallas’ entry – including a vicious left-handed dunk on the Toronto Raptors.
Harris said the Mavericks and a few other NBA teams had extended invitations to their training camps to Fair, but the invites came with no guarantees. Meanwhile, Harris said he had secured a $200,000 deal with a team in Europe for Fair. “It was a great deal,” Harris said. “It was a deal with a EuroCup team that he chose not to take.” Italian sports journalist Guido Guida reported on Twitter that Fair has signed with agent Joel Bell of the Bell Sports Inc.
C.J. Fair has fired his agent and signed on with a new agency, both his former agent and his father confirmed on Thursday. Fair, who led Syracuse University in scoring in each of the last two seasons, was not selected in the NBA’s draft last June. He played in the NBA’s Las Vegas Summer League with the Dallas Mavericks. The summer league ended last weekend. “He terminated me yesterday,” Torrel Harris, who had been representing Fair, said Thursday. “I like C.J. I wish the best for him.”

Junior forward C.J. Fair has announced his intention to return to Syracuse for his senior year with the men’s basketball team. The second-team All-BIG EAST Conference performer considered entering his name in the 2013 NBA Draft but decided to come back to SU for his fourth year of eligibility and to complete his degree work.
Syracuse University junior C.J. Fair has been waffling for the past week on whether to return for his senior year or enter the NBA draft, according to a source close to Fair. The source said that as recently as last week Fair was ready to give up his final year of eligibility and enter the NBA Draft. However, after visiting with his family in Baltimore, Md., over the weekend, Fair had reversed his thinking. He would return for his senior year.
