DJ Strawberry Rumors
Two players that spent the 2015/2016 season in the Greek Basket league, D.J. Strawberry and Okaro White were also invited in the Mavs’ camp. What is interesting, is the fact that while Strawberry played for Olympiacos, Okaro White, who wore the jersey of Aris, has already agreed to a deal with the Reds for the upcoming season.
DJ Strawberry is suing Cibona Zagreb to FIBA BAT to due lack of payments, according to a source with the knowledge of the situation. The Croatian team still owes Strawberry money (rumors say more than 100.000 USD). The American guard has played with Cibona from September 2012 till December 2012 when he left for France.
According to krepsinis.net, the San Antonio Spurs, along with the Los Angeles Lakers, were interested in former NBA player D.J. Strawberry but the NBA lockout all but put an end to Strawberry possibly returning to the NBA and joining San Antonio. Although he would have been another guard, the Spurs’ interest in him was probably due to the fact he is a decent defender. And this focus on defense is good to see coming from San Antonio as they retool for next season. If there is a next season.
The New Orleans Hornets waived guard D.J. Strawberry on Wednesday. In four preseason games, Strawberry averaged 3.0 points. He was held scoreless after playing four minutes in Wednesday’s 105-98 overtime loss to the Charlotte Bobcats.
