Kenny Gabriel Rumors
In the meantime, Kenny Gabriel’s focus has been channeled towards the NBA as well. Actually, he has already received an invitation to take part in the Cleveland Cavaliers training camp, according to Eurohoops’ sources. The NBA champs liked what they saw from the 27-year old player in the Las Vegas Summer League, where he averaged 7.4 points and 3.7 rebounds per game with their jersey. Of course, the Cavs didn’t wait for this tournament in order to find out Gabriel’s positive attributes, which he has been steadily developing over the years.

Though nothing was announced, we hear the Heat summoned these 10 players to audition at a free agent camp this week: shooting guards Rodney McGruder (who played on its D-League team in Sioux Falls, South Dakota), Quinton Upshur (Northern Arizona/Portugal); Brandan Kearney (University of Detroit); Juwan Howard Jr. (son of the Heat assistant/played in Spanish League) and Jabril Trawick (Georgetown/Sioux Falls), plus forwards Okaro White (FSU/Greece), Xavier Gibson (FSU/Greece), Kevin Tumba (Belgium), Kenny Gabriel (Auburn/Turkey) and 6-11 Norvel Pelle, a skilled shot-blocker who was the No. 1 center in the 2011 high school class, failed to qualify at St. John’s and has played in the D-League, Taiwan and elsewhere since. Players who finished this past season in the NBA cannot be brought in for workouts before July 1.
The Sacramento Kings have just announced another group of players coming through on Sunday for a workout. No lottery picks in the bunch: Zack Rosen (Pennsylvania), Jamelle Barrett(Saskatchewan), Eli Holman (Indiana), Kyle O’Quinn(Norfolk St.), Kenny Gabriel (Auburn), Alex Young (IUPUI)
