HoopsHype Mickael Gelabale rumors

Two possessions later, Parker drove right into traffic, into the hands of Rodriguez. Off went Calderon, into the corner, a shot curling through the air, as the buzzer prepared to sound. Collet, like everyone, just watched and gasped. "You just hope," he thought. "For sure, we could lose it." But this time, they did not. When overtime ended, the weight of past failure was lifted off French shoulders. Mickael Gelabale offered Diaw a high five. Not enough, he thought. The pair embraced. And then, as a team, they went into a huddle, as Spanish heads bowed around them. Diaw spoke up. "Yes," he said, "be happy we're going to the final. But now we've got one more important game." For a few minutes, before thoughts turned to Lithuania, they soaked up the moment and savored the slaying of their nemesis. And why not? "We finally beat this team," Batum smiled. "This team have given us so many nightmare, breaking our dream every time. We wanted this win, we wanted this game. We finally did it." ESPN.com

Free agent Mickael Gelabale seems to be now their prime target. Probably that’s why as “Gigantes” reported the player declined the offer of Valencia. The French forward would like to stay in the NBA, but returning to Europe for the Euroleague champions is not such a bad alternative. That been said, until Saturday morning Gelabale didn’t had an official offer from Olympiacos and he was very close to signing a contract in Russia. EuroHoops.net

Davis tugs at his left knee as he explains, and demonstrates how, in order to keep it straight, he needed to lift his leg with his hand. NBA doctors, Davis says, misdiagnosed the injury as tendinitis. He recently learned that the injury was actually a patellar tendon tear, for which he underwent surgery and rehabilitation. Now he says he's ready to resume his NBA career. In January, he got a shot with a workout for the Timberwolves. But Minnesota passed on bringing Davis back. "They signed [Mickael] Gelabale for the whole year," Davis says. "I played with him in France, so that really makes me sick. That makes me really sick. That really hurts. They signed him for the whole year." Grantland

Still, it might be Johnson who has the best chance to stick with the team long term, because of his size (6-11) and jumping ability. "We don't have somebody like that," Kahn said. Kahn indicated both players would be given the chance to work into the team's future plans. "I think in both cases there is a pathway to being here next year," he said. "It's not a done deal, but there is a pathway. Chris may be in a little bit of a different instance because [of his size]. So I would say he probably especially has a chance." Wolves coach Rick Adelman made clear that signing the two shouldn't preclude the team from trying to improve the roster more. "We'd better be hoping to do something," he said. "We have to improve this team." Minneapolis Star-Tribune
