Trevor Mbakwe RumorsAll NBA Players
Trevor Mbakwe was announced by Brose Baskets Bamberg today. The American big man with passport from Nigeria has NBA and Euroleague outs this summer in his contract with the German powerhouse, according to sources. Mbakwe will play for the the Lakers in the Vegas Summer League.
Hollins called Mbakwe for advice on how to prepare for Europe because that looks to be his destination as well. “His goal, like mine, is to make the NBA,” Mbakwe said. “But he’s open-minded to the possibility of playing in Europe. I think that’s very key. You have to have the right mind-set to play in Europe.” Mbakwe did, and now … “If I have a good showing, I think I have a good chance of getting invited to an NBA training camp or sign a contract for next year,” he said. “I was hearing from some other teams, but I thought the Lakers seemed like the best fit because of the roster space. They don’t have many big guys like me.”
Trevor Mbakwe is unlikely to join Cimberio Varese, as reported by La Prealpina. The rookie big man was close to penning a deal with the Italian team but in the last hours the situation changed and Alba Berlin seems to be the front runner to sign him.
