Two recent NBA cuts may continue their careers in Europe. David Stockton and Scottie Wilbekin are considering offers from Europe, a source told Sportando. Stockton was waived by the Kings during the pre-season, while Wilbekin was waived by the Sixers. Stockton has received an offer from Germany, while the market for Wilbekin looks bigger with at least an offer from Serbia.
By virtue of their early exit here, the Germans cannot qualify directly for Rio 2016. However a recent, belated change to the process to obtain berths in Brazil next summer means that any country taking part in the current round of continental championships can bid to host -– and participate in — one of the three Olympic Qualification Tournaments, to take place early next summer. And with the German Federation understood to be considering a bid, the presumption that this was Nowitzki’s farewell may be mis-placed.
