Jack Salt has had a pretty solid career since UVA, seemingly, good for him! Happy for all these guys and love seeing the recaps @jazznutUVA , keep them coming!

Kody had himself a nice dunk last week.

The Kody transition highlights continue. Maybe he should have played at like VCU?

Yes. I always said this

Agree with Fresh, Kody was out of his depth at a Power 5. Probably woulda thrived at a mid-major. Hell that YMCA he’s playing in during these clips could easily double for GW’s gym.

Looks like Devon extended with Milan through 2024. Helped them win both the league and cup titles last season. Happy he’s found a stable spot!

Also, Jack’s playing again in NZ. Seems to be doing alright;

Not UVa… but Keve Aluma just signed for a 2nd Division Team in Japan… I think he should’ve gone back to Tech for another year (but sat out for UVa games because he killed us)…

Can Tipton take some notes from this? Rather than those nightmarish looking blobs, how about some nice cherry blossoms? Research some state flowers or something.

Sorry, total ignorance on my part probably but should Tomas Woldotensae (sp?) be in this list?

He will be… but I haven’t seen his contract announced yet.

… and most likely it will still be w/ Pallacanestro Varese in Italy.

Sorry, duh, thread title does say 22 - 23, gotta learn to read AND comprehend :smile:

Have to appreciate Aluma having VT called V Tech in his own edit.

He could have only topped that by rolling with Vah Tech instead.

Nigel Johnson has apparently been tearing it up in TBT. His team just advanced to the finals tonight.

Good analysis on Guy

3 Likes

Here’s the TLDR of the analysis:

  • Guy is undersized for the NBA
  • He has spent three years in the G-League with limited time in the NBA
  • You make more in Europe than the G-League

One thing Graham misses, IMO, is that the 2-way has become a competitive if not better deal than most Europe deals, but:

  • It’s not guaranteed, and teams seem to shuffle through various guys in that spot
  • I don’t know the details, but I suspect it might be limited to guys under certain years of service

But I think Graham basically gets the gist of the answer correct: the reason Kyle is heading overseas is because the NBA has gotten a long look and they’re not biting.

The same answer for Justin would be interesting to know, but I suspect we will have to wait for him to do an interview in ~10 years…
