- Former Louisville big man Otis George did not play at all last year due to injury. Before then, he was playing and starring in Italy's Lega Due, averaging 12.5ppg, 8.1rpg and 2.0spg for Reyer Venezia. Otis George was Rakeem Buckles before Rakeem Buckles was, a mid-range-and-in 6'8 athletic role playing forward who rebounded, played team defense, and didn't bugger it up offensively. George has already signed with the Orions - who I still keep calling the Onions by mistake - and so his return to the professional game looks secured.

Last year he averaged 12.5 points, 8.1 rebounds, 3.5 fouls and 2.0 steals per game for Umana Reyer, taking an unusual 3 three pointers a game and making 35% of them. This season, however, he is is unsigned.
