I think he plays for his national team and is trying to qualify for the Olympics.

Croatia is in the Olympic qualifiers and they are in group d. so thats why he is not in the summer team.

Since we talkin about the Summer League...Beasley scored 26 while rose had 10 points and 5 TOs.

I know its one game but I seriously thought Chicago was crazy letting Beasley go. I know Rose will probably be like Deron but still...Beasley has been the rarest talent in a long time.

Cause he would destroy the competition! He secretly has super powers and he doesn't want to unleash them until the regular season. :shush:

Yes and today againt New Jersey he had 9 points 7 fouls, and only 1 for 13 shooting. So yeah it doesn't mean anything.

Yes. I think he'll do really well, maybe something like 8/5. In remember him being projected as a mid-late 1st rounder in 2005. Getting him in the mid 2nd was a steal, he's gotten the time to develop in Europe. I have high expectations for him.

ya hes playing in the qualifier...i would rather have him play there anyways, hes palying against other countries best..not the summer league where you have project players and players who are trying to make a comeback.

Roko might finally get signed:


In the wild and wacky world of international basketball, the buyout and contract closure that will allow Roko Ukic to sign with the Raptors had to go through two federations (Italy, where played this year; and Spain, where his rights were actually held) as well as FIBA and then the NBA has to take a look at it.

It might get done today, it might be tomorrow, but itís going to get done, not to worry.

Roko played today for Croatia against P.R and did pretty well.
12 pts, 6rbs, 5 assists and they won. we'll see him play against canada!
