Chris Kramer Rumors
Since playing the 2010-11 season in Fort Wayne with the Mad Ants of the NBA D-League Chris Kramer has been a world traveler, playing professionally in Puerto Rico and Europe. Starting Saturday the Huntington North graduate is getting a chance to showcase his skills in the states as a member of the Houston Rockets summer league team that will compete in Orlando.
In Orlando, the Rockets team will include guards Jahii Carson and Jermaine Marshall out of Arizona State, Jabari Brown of Missouri, Chris Kramer of Purdue, and Chris Crawford of Memphis; forwards Chris Udofia of Denver, Akil Mitchell of Denver, Richard Solomon of California, Tarik Blake of Kansas and Leunen; and center Miro Bilan of Croatia.
Scott Schroeder: Chris Kramer is playing for the Pacers in Orlando and Hawks in Vegas, according to @garrettmartz.
Chris Kramer signed a contract with EWE Baskets Oldenburg in Germany, as reported to Sportando. The guard will play the NBA Summer League and in the contract he has an option to opt out if he gets an NBA offer.
Like any good point guard, Chris Kramer is considering his options. Released this week from the Milwaukee Bucks’ training camp, the former Purdue and Huntington North guard isn’t ready to fully commit to the Mad Ants, Fort Wayne’s NBA Development League team. But he knows they’re there just in case. “I’m trying to weigh some options and see if there’s any interest anywhere else,” Kramer said. “At this point I’d probably say the Mad Ants are the most realistic thing that would happen for me.”
Gary Washburn: Bucks waive former Purdue guard Chris Kramer. Watched him play and he should catch on somewhere else.
According to Indianapolis-based sports agent Buddy Baker, former Purdue guard Chris Kramer is expected to sign a free agent contract Wednesday with the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks. “I don’t know if he was heading up there (Tuesday) or (Wednesday), but, yes, he will be in Milwaukee to sign on Wednesday,” Baker said Tuesday night.
Chris Kramer’s professional basketball future could be decided in the next three weeks. Kramer will head to San Antonio on Sept. 7 to work out with the Spurs for a couple days, he said Wednesday. NBA training camps start at the end of September. Training camps for overseas clubs begin in the next couple of weeks and those seasons start in October, agent Buddy Baker said. So something has to be decided soon. “A lot of times with rookie players, they don’t get their first job until mid-September. That’s not uncommon,” Baker said. “We have a lot of players do that. We always tell guys it’s better to wait and take the right job instead of rushing and take a job.”
