To hardcore followers of overseas basketball, this is far from news, but for those of us barely able to remember the player movements in our own country, I thought this might be interesting.
In addition to Shawn Kemp, there are quite a few other former NBA/NCAA "stars" (I use that word very loosely) currently residing in the Italian League's Serie A. Among them:
Dan Dickau – Air Avellino
Reece Gaines – Angelico Biella
Randolph Childress – Cimberio Varese
Brandon Jennings – Lottomattica
Tyus Edney - Upea Capo D'orlando
Jermaine Jackson - Snaidero Udine
Qyntel Woods – Upim Bologna
Joe Forte – Upim Bolonga
From what I understand, Upim Bologna is really counting on Forte to finally capitalize on his potential this season. This could be his break-out year.
