Alba Berlin Rumors
Playing in Ulm — Albert Einstein’s hometown in Germany — Hayes showed he has room to improve. He was inconsistent from 3-point range (21.8% in 20 domestic league games; 39% in 10 EuroCup games), but is crafty with the basketball. “He hit me with a really good move at the top of the key — made me stumble and fall,” said Siva, who played one season with the Detroit Pistons. Hayes finished with 20 points and 10 assists in the loss to Siva’s team. Although quiet, Hayes does not lack confidence.
Donatas Urbonas: Rokas Giedraitis rejected few NBA Summer League invitations. Last year few teams considered him on a two-way contract and now he is under the NBA radar, sources confirmed. Giedraitis is still under the contract with ALBA and will make his Euroleague debut next season.
Alba Berlin announced the signing of Tyler Cavanaugh. The former NBA forward comes from Salt Lake City Stats where he averaged 17.8 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.6 assists last season.

You’ll be 27 this summer. Players like Dairis Bertans made the jump during this season… Are you open to trying to make it to the NBA? Rokas Giedraitis: I am right now focused on finishing the season as well as possible and hopefully win the BBL title. But yes, I am definitely open to it. Last summer there was some interest from some NBA teams in me and it’s obviously a dream of mine to one day play there.
You signed a three-year deal with Alba Berlin last summer. Are the contract terms still the same as when you signed? Rokas Giedraitis: Yes. I signed a three-year contract in the summer of 2018 and I have an opt-out clause if I get an NBA offer.
