In 9 BSL games he had 9.8ppg, 2.2rpg and 1.1apg last season. Mullens also played for another team Sioux Falls Skyforce in U.S. semi-pro league D-League that season where in 27 games he recorded 9.1ppg, 7.5rpg and 1.4apg.
In 2009 he was drafted by Dallas Mavericks (NBA) in first round (24th overall). The former Ohio State staris in his eighth season in pro basketball.
The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others he won D-League Central Division championship title in 2015. Mullens was also voted Big Ten Sixth Man of the Year back in 2009 at his college time. Mullens was a member of British Senior National Team two years ago.

  Lithuania - Silute lands Samuel Deguara  - by Eurobasket News - 4 hours ago

Silute (NKL) tabbed 25-year old Maltese center Samuel Deguara (223-131kg-91). He played most recently at Niagara River Lions in Canadian LBQ league. But in three games he averaged just 0.7ppg and 2.7rpg last season.
Last year Deguara was drafted by Erie Bay Hawks (D-League) in sixth round (98th overall).
He was also a member of Maltese international program for some years. Deguara played for Maltese Senior National Team between 2008 and 2014 and previously for U18 National Team back in 2009.
He represented Malta at the European Championship for Small Countries in Gibraltar two years ago. Deguara's team won Silver and his stats at that event were 4 games: Score-2 (18.8ppg), Reb-1 (15.0rpg), Blocks-1 (2.8bpg), FGP: 65.1%, FT: 64.0%.
Deguara is a very experienced player. He has played also professionally in Italy (Grissin Bon RE and Caorle), Serbia (Partizan), Spain (Ferrol, Baloncesto Fuenlabrada and Getafe) and Malta (Bupa).
Let's have closer look into Deguara's outlook: A young giant who could become the next European basketball sensation. His mom is 6-8, he's been yet measured at almost 7-4, and he is enough coordinated and skilled to end in double-double any game at cadet level he plays.
Sam is the tallest basketball player in the history of the Maltese basketball. He has a great wingspan and very good vision in the air that makes him really very effective in defence against his rivals. He displays a nice ripped frame, nicely strong for his age and virtually with no fat. Obviously, he will still need to gain some weight, but there's time for that given the fact that he is only seventeen. Sam needs to improve his shooting; even though he's fairly solid from mid-range distances he doesn't take many tries. In his weaknesses is the really zero result in the low post and in the paint even though he is so tall he can't control his body and his arms with the ball and the basket he needs a lot of coordination. Sam has quite good basketball IQ, he needs to work his dribble and his one on one offensive technique as sometimes "stacks" and forced to an easy error in the paint rather than a quick dunk he tries to triple. Benetton Treviso and the coaching team over there will definitely help him and will give him the best feasible knowledge in order to help him for the future

Paulos' game is described as: ( By Chris Mammides):
Nick Paulos is a super skilled forward, an absolute sniper from downtown but at the same time a very good rebounder and a man with silky moves in the paint who can block, defend and steal the ball at any given moment. He is a 'born to kill' player with 100% offensive instincts. Paulos is a dangerous from behind the three-point arc, he is a tremendously skilled six-foot-eight forward who not only shows a feathery jumper but also the versatility to handle and pass the ball, along with a tremendously high basketball I.Q. He has very long arms which can help him to play defense on much shorter and much taller players, not only does he have an effortless shooting stroke with deep range, but he handles and passes the ball with equal efficiency and without having any real problems while his style reminds the one of Pat Kalathis, another Greek American small forward who's currently playing in the Greek league. He is most definitely of a very good quality and his future is ahead for many great things. His only weakness is that he needs to add some weight in muscles and to work a bit his personal defense

  Lebanon - Al Thornton (ex NLEX RW) could sign at Moutahed  - by Eurobasket News - 1 day ago

Al Moutahed Tripoli (Pepsi LBL) is about to tab 33-year old American forward Al Thornton (203-97kg-83, college: Florida State) who played last time at NLEX Road Warriors in Philippines. In 12 PBA games he was second best scorer with impressive 36.1ppg and recorded 12.2rpg (#4 in the league) and 2.5apg last season.
In 2007 Thornton was drafted by Los Angeles Clippers (NBA) in first round (14th overall). The former Florida State standoutis in his tenth season in pro basketball. Thornton received Asia-Basket.com All-William Jones Cup 1st Team award in 2016.

Thornton has played previously professionally in China (Zhejiang Guangsha Lions), Puerto Rico (Brujos) and NBA (Golden State Warriors, LA Clippers and Washington Wizards).
Let's have closer look into His outlook: (by Matthew Maurer for NBADraft.net in 2007)
Physically Thornton is a jaw dropper type of athlete. Because of the high energy level and aggressiveness Thornton plays with, he draws a good number of fouls from opposing players. Does a great job of getting rebounds out of position thanks to his leaping ability and foot speed. Runs the court like a guard. Is a threat in transition where he is a tremendous finisher. Loves to face-up the opposing defender and blow by them using his length and explosive first step.
Ball handling ability is satisfactory at the collegiate level but will clearly need to be refined as he is prone to turnovers. Defensively while he is a adequate shot blocker, he still bites too often on pump fakes
