Sydney Kings general manager Bob Turner expects US-bound centre Julian Khazzouh to return to Australia next season with intimate knowledge of what it takes to become the next Luc Longley in the NBA. Khazzouh, who has already signed with the Kings for 2011-12, leaves this week for Los Angeles, where he will meet his agent and travel to several cities for trials with NBA franchises. It will be an eye-opener for the 209-centimetre 25-year-old. ''Julian's great for Australia because he's rangy and a good athlete,'' Turner said. Stock & Land
