Sydney Kings Rumors
A couple of weeks ago he reconnected with his former agent, Todd Ramasar, and Saturday held a private workout for the Dallas Mavericks. They supposedly remain interested, but as with everyone else, they want to see him play first. While a source close to Davis says interest also has been expressed by teams in Finland, Israel and Australia, where former Knicks teammate Al Harrington is currently playing for the Sydney Kings, going overseas would probably push a return to the NBA to next season. It also might make it difficult for him to keep up his maintenance work with Hines and Dr. Khaziran. Forging his way back through the no-frills D-League actually holds a certain appeal. He doesn’t want to come back because of who he was. He wants to make it back because of who he is.
Al Harrington has signed with the Sydney Kings to replace the injured Josh Childress on a short-term basis, league sources told FOX Sports Australia. Harrington will join the team on Thursday morning, with the expectation that he’ll suit up sometime this week; should logistics be sorted in time.
Sydney Kings import Josh Childress is also a former teammate of Warrick, with the two Americans playing together with the Phoenix Suns from 2010 to 2012. “Josh helped me a lot, like I said, he was actually trying to get me out last year and he told me what to expect.” said Warrick. “He really helped me transition for a guy coming in from the same situation as him: an NBA guy coming over for the first time. So it’s good to have a guy who’s gone through what you’re about to go through.
Adam Himmelsbach: Multiple sources confirm @Emiliano Carchia report that Celtics 2nd round pick Marcus Thornton is headed overseas to play in Australia next season. Marcus Thornton has not officially signed with Australian team yet, but could today. It’s short season so could return for D-League after too
Before Christmas, Childress was in great form and put himself in contention for the NBL’s most valuable player award. Childress has enjoyed his time in Sydney and is interested in helping the Kings improve next season. “We’re talking about it,” he confirmed yesterday. “The injury is unfortunate and fortunate. I have a lot more downtime now to go through a contract with the Kings and my agent and find out if we can reach an agreement that’s good for both sides.”
