Lucentum Alicante Rumors

But the NBA shut down league operations on July 1 when the old collective bargaining agreement expired, and Singler’s hope of making the team was put on hold. Rather than wait and wait and wait for the lockout to end, Singler, wanting to remain sharp and fit, launched his professional career in Spain’s top flight with Lucentum Alicante. He’s glad he made the decision to play in Europe. “Definitely,” he said to FIBA.com. “I know a lot of guys back in the States want to play basketball. “It’s unfortunate that the lockout is happening. “You have your pros and cons to everything. “I’m far away from my family and they’re not able to see my play, but, this is what I want to do. “I’m having a good time, and it’s good basketball.”
Pistons forward Austin Daye, poised for a breakout year, isn’t waiting for the NBA lockout to be resolved. The third-year forward signed a deal with a Russian team; Daye, 23, departs this weekend. Only one other Piston, second-round pick Kyle Singler, has signed an overseas deal, with Spanish club Lucentum Alicante. Daye’s deal is for two months, ending in December, Daye can opt-out in case the NBA’s collective bargaining situation is resolved quickly. Training camp would start the first week of October. Daye averaged 7.5 points and 3.8 rebounds in 20 minutes last season, shooting 40 percent from three-point range.
