"There's sort of a ... he's leaving the NBA, he's a little older, he's not a 21-year-old guy. So no, not really. But hopefully, when he gets down there to Calfornia, and gets practicing, and gets ready to play, and is getting ready for a game that he knows he's going to get a chance to play in, hopefully he will get enthused about it."

FC Barcelona was interested in Gigi Datome, but he has chosen Detroit. "My goal is to try another year in the NBA and draw a line with my experience at the end of next season. I signed a two-year deal precisely because so many players, in their first season in America, have had difficulties. There was an offer or a negotiation but anyway we stopped it, along with my agent, because I decided to stay in the NBA." La Gazzetta dello Sport

And Peyton Siva, who already has been playing increased minutes at point guard and saw extensive playing time in two wins before the debacle here. Jennings said it's time for more. "I think, at this point, it's important that we play the young guys," he said after missing his first 10 field-goal attempts. "Let the young guys get some time, let them see what it is to play 35 minutes a night in the NBA." Booth Newspapers
