Kurz, who appeared in 40 games for the Golden State Warriors after being signed as an undrafted free agent in 2008, has split the last three years between the D-League (Fort Wayne) and overseas (Spain, Germany, and France). He signed with the Chicago Bulls near the end of the 2009-10 season, but was waived that summer.
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.
Important addition for CB Granada which signed Rob Kurz. The big man spent last year in NBDL with Fort Wayne Mad Ants averaging a double double in points and rebounds. The official announcement is expected soon.
The Chicago Bulls announced today that the team has waived forwards Rob Kurz and Chris Richard. Kurz (6-9, 230), 25, signed with the Bulls as a free agent on April 9, 2010. He did not make an appearance in a Bulls uniform during his time with the team.
