Walter Herrmann - Herrmann negotiated a release from Caja Laboral in the summer so that he could pursue a return to the NBA, yet ended up with no team whatsoever. He is single and looking.

Walter Herrmann - Herrmann's return to Caja Laboral is not certain yet. (Or if it is, I missed it.) Caja have lost Tiago Splitter (San Antonio), Vladimir Golubovic (Banvit, Turkey) and will probably be losing Lior Eliyahu (who might return to Maccabi Tel-Aviv) from their frontcourt. However, they're also allegedly about to bring in Pneumonia Bjelica, and are also said to be chasing Esteban Batista, offering up Walter Herrmann in return. If Herrmann does become a free agent, I'd love to see him back in the NBA. He was a good little backup (career PER of 14.0), is better than Brian Scalabrine, and does a solid job of replicating of another NBA calibre talent, Bostjan Nachbar.

- Walter Herrmann
Herrmann is in year one of a four year contract that he signed with Caja Laboral in the ACB this summer, but year 1 isn't going too well. Hermann is averaging only 14.1 minutes, 5.9 points and 2.4 rebounds per game in the ACB, alongside 12.9/4.3/2.1 in the Euroleague. He has played no more than 21 minutes in any Euroleague game thus far, and had played only 49 ACB minutes all season through January 24th. He did however play all 40 minutes in Vitoria's last game against Estudiantes, totalling 22 points and 8 rebounds. However, the rest of the team combined for only 36 and Vitoria lost by 16.
