The Los Angeles Clippers announced today that the team has waived guard/forward Carlos Delfino and center Miroslav Raduljica. Delfino and Raduljica were acquired by the Clippers on August 26, 2014 in exchange for forward Jared Dudley and a protected 2017 first round draft pick. NBA.com

His game is not that simular to Papanikolaou, however DeShaun Thomas has a deal for next season with Barcelona, as Chema De Lucas reported first. The American forward is leaving Nanterre for the Spanish champions and the biggest challenge of his career. EuroHoops.net

David Andersen has a master plan for the coming year and it involves a FIBA World Cup medal and a return to the NBA. The 34-year-old centre will enter his fifth major tournament when the Boomers tip-off their World Cup campaign against Slovenia in Spain in the early hours of Sunday morning. After a hiatus in the second half of last year to rest his body, Andersen played the end of the European season with SIG Strasbourg in the French league and is primed to play a key role for the Boomers where he will start at power forward and be a major cog in the team's offence where his shooting and poise will be needed.

Andersen, who came through the Frankston Blues junior program before embarking on a professional career which is entering a 16th year, said he keenly wanted to see the Boomers claim their first senior medal this year. So he decided to put his focus squarely on the national team and put all decisions about his playing future off until after the World Cup. Sydney Morning Herald

Though the Spurs have one remaining roster spot left open, the chances they’d offer the spot to Lorbek seem very slim considering he’s already 30 years old, has a history with injuries, and the team has already signed Bryce Cotton, JaMychal Green, and Josh Davis reportedly to training camp deals, as each player will be battling to earn that final roster spot. Throw in the fact that there’s still a qualifying offer on the table to restricted free agent Aron Baynes, and Lorbek’s chances at making the jump to the states seem even more unlikely. Last season with Barcelona, Lorbek averaged eight points and 2.7 rebounds in 19 games. ProjectSpurs.com
