[...] Another side-effect of the Carmona/Maye/random-other-person backcourt was that it had no quality point guard play. Mayaguez tried to address this by bringing in former NBA player and D-League stalwart Maurice Baker. It wasn't easy - FIBA initially vetoed the move, citing a conflict of interests due to Baker's supposed commitments to another team. But the transaction finally went through, and Baker joined the team for their final ten games. Mayaguez still lost seven of them.

- Maurice Baker

Veteran Baker joined the Dakota Wizards in 2006, and played three full years there. It's unusual for someone to stay in the D-League that long, because it doesn't pay very well. And it's also very unusual for a man of that age to be there that long. But Baker did it anyway, and only this summer did he leave, signing in Cyprus for AEK Limassol alongside fellow D-Leaguer Trent Strickland. However, Baker spent barely any time at all in Cyprus, returning to the D-League as as one of the Wizards' returning players. Now into his fourth season there, Baker is averaging 12.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 2.2 steals per game, shooting 49% from the field and 43% from three point range.

Cypresian is not a word, by the way.
