Sim Bhullar became the first player of Indian descent to sign a contract with an NBA team Friday, inking a deal to join the Sacramento Kings in training camp. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. "I've long believed that India is the next great frontier for the NBA, and adding a talented player like Sim only underscores the exponential growth basketball has experienced in that nation," said Kings owner Vivek Ranadive, the league's first Indian-born majority owner. "While Sim is the first player of Indian descent to sign with an NBA franchise, he represents one of many that will emerge from that region as the game continues to garner more attention and generate ever-increasing passion among a new generation of Indian fans."

Ronald Roberts is apparently headed to 76ers training camp this fall. A French Web site reported Roberts, an undrafted forward from St. Joseph's, has signed a three-year contract with the Sixers. He supposedly had until Aug. 1 to tell his French team (Chalon) that he planned to play there, which he declined to do. There are rumblings that a portion of Roberts' first year could be guaranteed. Adam Pensack, Roberts' San Francisco-based agent, said Monday that he's “going to have no comment” about contract terms, though Pensack added Roberts “had some interest with Philadelphia.” Bucks County Courier Times

Ginobili wrote in detail about the disappointment of receiving word from the Spurs that they would not allow him to play despite improvement with the stress fracture in his lower right fibula. But Ginobili, despite considering options to circumvent the Spurs’ wishes, said he finally realized the risk was too great upon experiencing persistent soreness in the injured area. For the bone to be well sealed and not remain any doubts, I had spent 42 days without being able to train as usual, no jumping or running, so as not to put stress on the fibula. And that made me reach the training camp in a painful physical condition. When one is 37 years old, it is not easy to return and start from nothing, so we tried to accelerate a little at a time. I started the physical work in the pool acceptably, but when I went to the treadmill there began to emerge some pain, mostly in the right ankle and left foot. San Antonio Express-News
