Cheyne Gadson takes his talents to Latvia

Golden State Warriors training camp invite Cheyne Gadson is headed back to Europe. VEF Riga, a team in Latvia, has officially announced the signing of the 30-year-old guard, who will make his debut with his new team next week.

Over the past four seasons, Gadson played in the D-League for five different teams - most recently with the Dakota Wizards - before being released mid-season.

The 6-foot-4 veteran was really only able to show that he has NBA potential during the 2006-07 season when he averaged 15.7 points and 4.8 assists in a season split between the Tulsa 66ers and Austin Toros, but he surprisingly received an invitation to the Golden State Warriors'  training camp this year.

Not as surprisingly, he was waived two weeks later without playing a single game.

The Latvian league is not one of the most powerful competitions in Europe, but Gadson will have the chance to play against two Euroleague teams in the Baltic League (Zalgiris and Lietuvos Rytas). Besides that, he could even meet Allen Iverson, recently signed by Besiktas, in the EuroCup - the second continental competition. That's probably a step foward from the Venezuelan league, where Gadson finished last season.
