  Luxembourg - Bascharage lands Marko Latinovic  - by Eurobasket News - 16 hours ago

BBC Bascharage Hedgehogs (N2) tabbed 30-year old Serbian swingman Marko Latinovic (203-96kg-87, college: Erskine). He has played for the last three years at Basket Esch in the Total League. In 18 games he averaged 12.6ppg and 3.1rpg last season. N2 will be definitely a better match and he can see more playing time.

He attended Erskine University until 2010 and it will be his eighth season in pro basketball.
Let's have closer look into Latinovic's outlook: Marko is a very fast, quick and athletic wing player, with long arms. Has ability to post up if necessary, but would rather drive it to the basket and finish it strong at the rim with great dunking skills or pull up the jump shot. He is a very good 3 point shooter (42.8%). According to Mark Peeler, his coach in past 2 years, Marko is the best defender that he has had in a long period of time. Reads the offence, and understands the game of basketball very well.

  NBA - Suns C Alex Len plans to sign qualifying offer before training camp  - by Eurobasket News - 16 hours ago

Barring an unforeseen change of events, Phoenix Suns center Alex Len (7'1''-C-93, college: Maryland) is planning to sign the team's $4.2 million qualifying offer before training camp, clearing the way to become an unrestricted free agent in 2018, league sources told ESPN. The Suns open camp on Tuesday at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. Len, 24, the fifth overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft, has spent the summer as a restricted free agent. Len, a skilled 7-footer, investigated offer sheets and sign-and-trade proposals, but none made sense with the possibility of free agency next summer. The Suns are preserving salary-cap space in 2018 without signing him to an extension now, but do risk losing Len for no compensation. With Len signing a $4.2 million qualifying offer, Phoenix would enter the season with $14.3 million in salary-cap space. Len will have veto power over a trade. If traded, he would lose his Bird rights in contract negotiations. Phoenix wants to study's Len's progress in the 2017-18 season before committing to a long-term, lucrative contract extension to him. Len has started 80 games over the past two seasons, including 34 in 2016-17 when he averaged eight points, 6.6 rebounds and 1.3 blocks a game.

Let's have closer look into Cosey's outlook: Glenn is the poster child for the basketball term "THE ULTIMATE FLOOR GENERAL" He plays with poise, good pace & strong leadership skills at all times, and never gets rattled know matter how big the stage is!!!!! Cosey has a rock solid body and is always in tip top condition. He is a perfectionist and works on his basketball skills all year around. Glenn is a deadly shooter with unlimited range on his jump-shot and can never be left alone on the court at any time, because of his great scoring
skills. His dribble drive and assists game are very efficient. Cosey is very aggressive on defense and has the strength to lock up with taller guards. He is a second coach on the floor and has a high basketball IQ and very good character
