In Italy, Bucks draft pick Szymon Szewczyk signed a two year extension with Air Avellino. He ranked second the team in rebounds last year behind Chevon Troutman, was second in points behind Dee Brown, and also managed not to get arrested in a drunken car wreck unlike the other two. Another NBA draft pick signed in Italy, Petteri Koponen, is to remain in Bologna for at least one more season. And ex-NBA player Jumaine Jones is staying with Pepsi Caserta for at least one more season, which really crippled this otherwise infallible post.

- Jumaine Jones
Jones is also in Italy, playing for Pepsi JuveCaserta. He is averaging 13.8 points and 8.0 rebounds per game, with the rebounds ranking 5th in the league. He is averaging 33.0 minutes per game, and would be averaging more were it not for a 7 minute outing versus Napoli. Like I said, front line players don't play against them much. That's why the lopsided wins are even more disgraceful.
