Fenerbahce Ulker Rumors

Bjelica exercised his reported $1.3 million “out” clause — partly paid by the Wolves — just hours after his contract expired with the Fenerbahce Ulker team in Istanbul. He did so on the same day NBA teams collectively and astoundingly threw money by the hundreds of millions at free agents — everyone from three-time All-Star Kevin Love staying in Cleveland and Tyson Chandler headed to Phoenix to role players such as Al Farouq Aminu and Amir Johnson changing teams — in a flurry of deals during the opening hours of free agency.
Bjelica probably won’t play with the Wolves’ summer-league team that begins practices Monday and will play a free 7 p.m. public scrimmage Wednesday at Target Center. Andrew Wiggins, Towns, Zach LaVine, Shabazz Muhammad, Dieng and first-round pick Tyus Jones all are expected to play in the scrimmage, although Wiggins is not expected to play with the team when it begins Las Vegas Summer League play July 10 against D’Angelo Russell and the Los Angeles Lakers.

At the end of his first month, after he had made half of his four threes while generating 12 points and three assists in a big win at Charlotte, Goudelock walked into the locker room to hear Matt Barnes and Luke Walton talking. “They were saying, `He sure does like to shoot,”’ Goudelock recalls. “I’m like, `What are y’all talking about?’ They were laughing, they said, `You know who we’re talking about. We’re talking about you.’ “And then Kobe was like, `We’re going to call you the Mini-Mamba.’ So that was a great moment for me.”
He knows how the semifinal in Madrid is shaping up. Both teams have former and future NBA players. Goudelock will find himself matched up against Rudy Fernandez and Sergio Llull. If the game is tight at the end, the ball is going to be in Goudelock’s hands. He will try to replace the mighty noise with a calming, intensifying silence. He will have to trust his instincts. He will need to believe in the teachings of Kobe. “The rules are different here, everything is so much different — the big games are almost like a stalemate where you’re beating each other up, so it comes down to who is executing down the stretch and hitting the big shots,” Goudelock says.
