Though it's safe to say warm weather and sunny skies are often most enjoyable, one huge benefit to entering the season of fall is that basketball is officially right around the corner.
With NBA training camp now just about a week away for most teams, it's officially go time for those D-League alumni and/or past international stars to strut their stuff and prove they have what it takes to deserve a roster spot for the coming season.
As a reminder, to find out who's gone where-- i.e. which past minor leaguers are gunning for an NBA shot this year, and which others were too tempted to pass up guaranteed money overseas, make sure you're always on the lookout for updates from the great Mark Porcaro as well.
To track the latest international movement, and/or find out who may still be available for NBA teams to snatch right up, go here. For an update as to where each and every NBADL athlete will end up this fall, go here.
Such movement, especially considering where internationally some D-League stars from last season have gone, has been quite interesting to note. In some cases, some notable minor league talent is also set to team up overseas as well. For instance, both NBADL M.V.P. Andrew Goudelock and Luke Harangody will suit up together for Unics Kazan in Russia. In addition, Idaho Stampede teammates Josh Owens and Carlon Brown will team up once again in Israel for Hapoel Tel Aviv.
