Alex Kennedy: Former NBA player Josh Selby has signed a contract to play in the AmeriLeague, according to sources. http://t.co/KamCJjjXdk
The AmeriLeague, a potential competitor for the NBA Developmental League, has named former Hawks center and longtime assistant coach Tree Rollins as a coach of one of its six franchises. The league also has added former NBA players Terrence Williams, Antoine Wright, and David Harrison to its rosters. The league will begin play on Nov. 9 at the Cashman Center in Las Vega
Alex Kennedy: Recap: AmeriLeague says they signed Terrence Williams, Dajuan Wagner, Antoine Wright, recruit Ted Kapita. Tree Rollins hired as first coach. Oh, and I left one former NBA player off of the list of players the AmeriLeague announced: former Indiana Pacers big man David Harrison.
The AmeriLeague have acquired forwards Terrence Williams and Antoine Wright. Both have agreed to the terms of a contract that will allow the former 11th (Williams) and 15th (Wright) overall NBA draft picks to compete in the 2015-16 AmeriLeague season.
Former first-round pick David Harrison has verbally agreed to a deal with the semipro Las Vegas Dealers, who are also in significant discussions with ex-NBA player Royce White. The Dealers are part of the startup Amerileague, which intends to target top high school talent and well-known former NBA players.
Harrison has a contract offer for $200,000, according to his agent Zach Charles. White also has a deal on the table worth a guaranteed $200,000, league commissioner Ethan Norof confirmed to ESPN on Thursday night. "We're excited to have David join the Amerileague and look forward to adding additional NBA talent in the near future," Norof said. "We also plan to stay aggressive in our pursuit of the top high school prospects."

The NBA informed teams Monday that players still need to have either received a primary course of a COVID-19 vaccine or been given a medical clearance from getting one in order to play games in Canada, according to a league memo obtained by ESPN. The memo also states that, should players be ineligible to play in games in Canada, teams must list them as, “Out – Health and Safety Protocols,” and that they will lose their pay for any games missed due to not being vaccinated.
This season, the Raptors will play at least 44 games in Canada: preseason games in Edmonton against the Utah Jazz; Montreal against the Boston Celtics; and Toronto against the Chicago Bulls; plus their typical 41 regular-season home games at Scotiabank Arena and any additional playoff games. The same rules apply both to going to Canada to play in a game, as well as for entering the United States. Anyone playing for the Raptors, therefore, would have to be vaccinated in order to play in any game this season. Last season, the Raptors were fully vaccinated.
A few of Fox’s peers also attended the wedding including Sacramento Kings general manager Monte McNair and Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum. Former Kentucky Wildcats Bam Adebayo and Wenyen Gabriel, who was also Fox’s teammate in Sacramento, attended the wedding. Adebayo and Gabriel were two of the groomsmen at the ceremony.
