October 16, 2013 Updates

Not long after the Nets beat the Celtics, the team waived Marko Jaric, who celebrated his 35th birthday this weekend. Jaric, who was one of Serbia's most decorated basketball players, was a late camp invite. But after getting extended minutes due to injuries to Deron Williams, Tyshawn Taylor and Jorge Gutierrez, it became obvious that Jaric had lost more than a step. In two games, Jaric scored three points in 32 minutes. NetsDaily

The Chicago Bulls aren't going to be able to keep players like Fesenko or Jaric beyond camp because they're right at the hard cap. They can either make a trade to open up some space, but teams aren't exactly dealing right about now, or just waive & hope those players are willing to come back (Fesenko) after their salary prorates down enough so that hard cap is not broached.

Now, Jaric is ready to play in the U.S. again, partly due to the recent birth of his second child with wife Adriana Lima, a renowned supermodel. Jaric acknowledges that his famous spouse often overshadows his own career, but the 33-year-old (34 next week) isn't fazed by it in his fight to get back to basketball's top league. "All my life, I’ve had that and I’ve never cared too much about what people say because people are always going to find an excuse. My father was a basketball player when I was young. People said, ‘Oh, he’s there because his father played,’ but now it’s my wife. It’s always something. I never pay attention too much. Basketball is my life and it’s the most important thing in my mind right now," he told CSNChicago.com. "It was very tough because I played two half seasons in Europe before that and I didn’t want to go back to Europe anymore. I had a couple of very good offers and it was a big decision for, but I needed to put my family before anything else because of my second child. We couldn’t just travel anymore from Europe to the States and I needed to make tough decisions, and refused pretty good offers from Europe in hopes that a good NBA team picks me up. Hopefully this year, that happens." CSN Chicago
