Where Are They Now, 2009; Part 7
January 8th, 2009

Cedric Bozeman is playing for the Anaheim Arsenal in the D-League, where he averages 17.9 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.9 assists, where he plays the off-guard to Tierre Brown’s point. (Brown averages 14.4 points and 4.6 assists.) But the best Cedric Bozeman news of all is that he is 22-51 from behind the three-point line, for a 43% average. This isn’t exactly a massive sample size to be working off, and it does come from the man who shot 21% on three-pointers in Poland last season, but it may be a sign that Bozeman’s jump shot might not be too big of a weakness any more. With a decent jump shot, Bozeman has a chance to be vaguely interesting to NBA teams. His first go-around with the Atlanta Hawks wasn’t pretty, as he shot 28% in 23 games and had a 1:1 assist/turnover ratio. But teams love their tall point guards, and even though Bozeman isn’t playing full-time point guard right now, he could. Any evidence of his development as a scorer can only help his case.


Michael Bradley opted not to play this season. And maybe never again. Here’s why.


Shawn Bradley retired ages ago and, at last count, now works in a school.


Torraye Braggs has played basically everywhere, and, until last week, was playing in Mexico with Pioneros de Quintana Roo-Cancun. Apparently he only plays on teams with awesome names, because before Pioneros de Quintana Roo-Cancun, Braggs was playing for a team in Jordan called, simply, “Orthodox”. Before that, he played in Iran for Petrochimi Imam Harbour. Before that, it was ASK Riga in Latvia (less awesome, but a suitably random country), and before that came Maccabi Ironi Ramat Gan in Israel and the Qingdao Double Stars in China. If there’s a basketball league featuring teams with great names, and where the money isn’t too bad, Torraye Braggs will find it.


J.R. Bremer is playing for Triumph in Russia (them of the Nenad Krstic thing), where he averages 12.0 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.8 assists. He also is now a Bosnian passport holder, something that he seemingly managed to obtain on the basis of the five games that he played for Bosna Sarajevo last season. Does that seem a bit odd to you? Yes, me too. But, crucially for Bremer, that passport makes it easier for him to be signed in Europe, as it allows him to be technically a European, thus facilitating his move into any league with a maximum number of Americans policy. And Bremer at least actually plays for the Bosnian national team.


– Last time we checked in with Jamison Rudy Van Brewer, he was out of basketball. Guess what? He still is.


Primoz Brezec averages 9.9 points and 3.5 rebounds for Lottomatica Roma. More importantly, he has got rid of the curtains.


– I’ve already spoilt any suspense that you may have been looking for regarding the whereabouts of Tierre Brown. Sorry about that.


P.J. Brown says he has retired. Again. Do you believe him? This time, yes I do.


Kedrick Brown started this season with a brief stint in China, before returning to the D-League. Like basically everyone else in this post, Brown plays for the Arsenal, where he averages 9.6 points and 4.8 rebounds in only five games.


Damone Brown is back in the D-League, still trying to make the NBA once again. Playing for a poor Reno Bighorns team, Brown averages 16.6 points, 8.0 rebounds, and a rather high 4.3 fouls per game.


– Finally, Denham Brown started this season by not showing up for Canada’s training camp, before joining Dakota in the D-League. Brown was then waived in December due to injury. No, Toronto Raptors fans, you are not about to sign him.
