Garrett Siler, John Lucas III Sign in China


According to this article sent along by a helpful reader (which you'll need to translate since it's in Chinese; I used Babelfish), center Garrett Siler (or "Jiali Celler") and point guard John Lucas III have signed with the Shanghai East team over in the CBA. Siler is a very talented (if a bit overweight) player who got some notice in Summer League this year and a training camp invite with the Hawks before being drafted by the Utah Flash. Lucas has spent some time in the NBA and Europe and played for the Colorado 14ers last year. He's a solid point guard, but NBA teams don't tend to sign PGs under six feet tall unless they're way under six feet tall (like Earl Boykins).
