According to his agent, Baynes' performances have caught the eyes of several NBA general-managers. "There are two Western Conference teams closely following Aron, and after four rounds of Euroleague, there has been much more serious enquiries and interest shown," Moldovan commented. Specifying on what exactly attracts NBA teams to Baynes, Moldovan said, "they love the that he's a good free throw shooter (68% in Euroleague), which is rare for bigs in the NBA. Because Aron started playing ball so late, he is only now coming to his peak. Judging by the way he's playing now and the interest I'm getting -- the NBA is his next step -- it's now just a matter of finding the right fit for him," he said. Sportando

Though the text was difficult to translate, Green did indicate that he's taking his days "match by match" and indicated "At this moment, I'm still here," referring to playing in Europe. I guess (it) will happen soon. My agent did not mention it (returning to the Spurs) before we talked. But I repeat, my thoughts are currently aimed at Olympia. I want to help the team to the best of my ability. ProjectSpurs.com

Rookie center Jerome Jordan became the first Knick to officially hit Europe to play basketball because of the lockout. With all the rhetoric from Amar'e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony about playing overseas ball, the 7-foot Jordan landed in Slovenia Tuesday and participated in his first day of training camp for Krka yesterday. Jordan has an out clause to return to the Knicks if the lockout ever ends. The Adriatic League season begins in late September with exhibitions starting in two weeks. As The Post reported, Jordan agreed to terms a month ago, but the deal was nearly scrapped because of a dispute over various housing perks. New York Post

Green, 24, appeared in eight games over two stints with the Spurs last season, and also made four postseason appearances. Already signed for the 2011-12 season, if it happens, Green stands a better-than-decent chance of making the Spurs out of training camp, if there is one. In a way, Green considers his out clause as a bet that cooler heads will eventually prevail in the NBA’s collective bargaining standoff. “I’m optimistic we’ll at least have half a season,” Green said.

Jeff McDonald: Hearing Danny Green probably does have out clause in Slovenia, which would jibe with his tweet from earlier. Twitter

Curtis Stinson has been one of the most most statistically impressive players in the NBA D-League the past few seasons. Unfortunately for fans of the Development League, however, the point guard doesn't look like he'll be suiting up again for the Iowa Energy next season. Stinson has signed with KRKA Novo Mesto in Slovenia, according to a release on the team's website, and will team up alongside 2010 NBA Draft pick Jerome Jordan this season. It's probably fitting that the club's current roster has listed the former D-League MVP's position as "defender." Ridiculous Upside

Former Austin Toros G/F Danny Green announced via Twitter late Friday evening that he would indeed be moving on to play in Slovenia during the current NBA Lockout. Green, who signed a non-guaranteed multi-year contract with the Toros' NBA affiliate San Antonio Spurs last season, stated in a series of tweets that he hopes to be back when the lockout ends. However he also indicated that he would be back if the organization (Spurs) wants him back. Examiner
