HoopsHype Joe Ingles rumors

September 16, 2014 Updates

If it wasn’t for FIBA’s tanking allegations against his Boomers team at the World Cup in Spain, Ingles — Australia’s unofficial captain and star of its ill-fated campaign — would be in a perfect place. “There’s been interest from the NBA and Europe as well,” the 26-year-old, 203cm swingman said. Coming off a Euroleague championship with Maccabi Tel Aviv, Ingles is primed to make the NBA jump after passing last year on an opportunity with Memphis Grizzlies. “Having won a Euroleague now, I have Europe on a backburner and there is a very, very good chance of going to the US,” he said.

Reluctant to name the clubs pursuing him, Ingles said they were clubs which had kept an eye on him in the past. “I’m 99 per cent sure I’ll be there,” he said of the NBA. “I won’t be on a guaranteed contract and will be trying to make the team but that in itself is motivation for me to go in and work. “I’m excited. The situation I’m going to is a team which has followed me. “I’ve spoken with general managers and coaches in the last few days. “In Europe, a lot of the time, especially at the bigger clubs, you’re in a system that’s already built and in offences that are already set. “Being able to sort through some teams and see a situation where I can play is a fun experience.” The Courier-Mail

Marc Stein: Grizz star Marc Gasol, of course, well known as one of Ingles' biggest fans, but MEM also has to keep eye on where they are luxury-tax wise. Grizzlies, based on my famously sketchy math, are about $1.2 million under the luxury-tax line. And Ingles would cost 'em $915,000. Twitter @ESPNSteinLine
