HoopsHype Chamberlain Oruchi rumors

August 9, 2012 Updates

After leaving college basketball in 2009, Nigeria national team player Chamberlain Oguchi has been the ultimate basketball journeyman, bouncing from professional leagues in Lebanon, Venezuela, Mexico and the Philippines. It seemed he would come and go out of these Olympic Games without much notice. That was before Oguchi scored 35 points in Nigeria's final preliminary round game, a 79-73 loss to France. Suddenly, several NBA teams are inviting him to training camp on non-guaranteed deals, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. Several teams had front-office executives in London for the performance, where Oguchi made eight of his 14 3-point attempts. Most see value in the versatile 6-foot-6 swingman, who could be had on a rookie-scale contract. Yahoo! Sports
