A.J. Abrams

There are many undersized shooters in the world, most of them pretending to be point guards to advance that career. However, Abrams has no such pretense; he's a shooter and plays accordingly. This is evident in his first professional career, where he put up A.J. Abrams-like numbers; 17.3ppg, 1.6rpg, 1.0apg.

Abrams left the team in December and did not play elsewhere that season. He was on the Nets summer league roster last year as well, but did not make the team. Indeed, as a 5'11 shooter with no point guard skills, he never will make an NBA team. He is what he is; undeniably talented, but not fit for the NBA.

- A.J. Abrams

After going undrafted, Texas muli-record holder A.J. Abrams is playing in Greece, where, due to their funky alphabet, he is known as A.J. Eimnpamz. For Trikalla in the Greek A1 League, Eimnpamz averages 17.3 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 35 minutes per game. It doesn't look as though he has any aspirations to expand the distributing aspect of his game, although nor does it look like his size is holding him back from scoring too much on the continent.

Trikalla are 12th out of 14 teams in the A1, armed with only a 2-6 record, and it's not been a good season. Their three imports are Abrams, Kasib Powell and former Pittsburgh forward Tyrell Biggs, but it's not really helped the team, and Biggs in particular has been poor. Trikalla recently brought in Mark Dickel, which might have spelled the end for Biggs, and which gives Abrams one more player not to pass to.
