  Australia - Will Sydney sign the Indian National Team captain?  - by Eurobasket News - 6 hours ago

The Sydney Kings are continuing to explore the possibility of signing Indian big man Amritpal Singh (212-C/F-91). After hosting the bruising centre at their two-day Rookie Camp earlier this month, the Kings have invited Singh to join their 'Sydney Kings Invitational' squad at next month's Atlas Challenge in China. Kings GM Jeff Van Groningen has described Sydney's continued interest in Singh as being 'in an exploratory frame of mind.' Singh, the captain of the Indian National Team, impressed at the NBL Combine in April with his combination of size, strength and touch around the basket. And with the NBL expanding its player eligibility rulings to include Indian nationals - as well as those from numerous other Asian countries - as non-restricted players, interest in Singh has been ongoing. 'We invited Amritpal to our Rookie Camp and he was very good, he competed very well and he definitely held his own,' Van Groningen told NBL Media. 'He really looked like he belonged at that setting. Now that setting was not top-flight NBL setting so the next thing that we need to explore is, as the level goes up does he go up with it?' The Atlas Challenge, played in the city of Suzhou, 100km from Shanghai, will feature high-calibre club and national teams from across the Asia-Pacific region, Europe and the United States. The Kings, whom Van Groningen says have 'a strong streak in us that welcomes the international involvement,' became the first NBL team to sign a Chinese-born player when they added Bo Lui as a development player last year. Rumours recently emerged that the Kings were interested in signing Filipino-American Bobby Ray Parks Jr. but Van Groningen confirmed with NBL Media that they are not. Singh, on the other hand, is intriguing. But unlike Lui, if Singh is to be signed he would need to be one of the Kings' eleven rostered players. 'Last year Bo Lui was definitely at a development player level so there was no problem enacting him in that way,' Van Groningen said. 'Now with Amritpal we need to see if he's at a roster level. We'll see if that determination can be made at the Atlas Challenge or at the Atlas Challenge plus preseason. We're happy to explore that.' Singh, a 6-foot-10 'old-school' centre, is attempting to become the first Indian-born player to compete in the NBL since Eban Hyams played for the Singapore Slingers in 2006-07. 'I am very excited to play for the Sydney Kings at the Atlas Challenge and I am focused on playing well,' Singh told NBL Media from India. 'I want to play to my fullest potential, and prove that the Kings were right to give me this opportunity. 'I want to show that I can fit into their team, that I can be useful to the team. I want to showcase my strengths and my ability to play for the team.' The Kings currently lack size on their 2017-18 roster. With Aleks Maric not expected to return and Julian Khazzouh not offered a contract by the team, Sydney are in the market for two centres; a starter and a back-up. 'Amritpal's an extremely big person, those guys are not easy to find,' Van Groningen said. 'He's got legitimate size from an NBL centre point of view. I mean, he'd be one of the biggest men out there, I think he'd probably be able to stand the block against Nathan (Jawai) in terms of size. 'Of course, Nathan has a lot more to his game than just size. So you look at that and you start to go, 'where does he fit in that?'' Singh, who says he's grown in confidence since the Combine, is determined to show that there's more to his game as well. It's all about seizing the moment. 'Chance toh hai (There is always a chance),' he said. 'If I play well, then I am sure I will be selected. It all comes down to my game.'

  France - Challans land Vaidotas Pridotkas  - by Eurobasket News - 6 hours ago

Vendee Challans Basket (NM1) tabbed 33-year old Lithuanian forward Vaidotas Pridotkas (200-100kg-84). He is not a newcomer in French League as he played most recently at Union Tours in the NM2.
The previous (15-16) season Pridotkas played at UB Chartres where in 35 NM1 games he was third best scorer with impressive 17.1ppg and recorded 6.7rpg and 2.1apg. He can count that season as a very successful as was awarded Eurobasket.com All-French NM1 Bosman Player of the Year and selected to 2nd Team.
Pridotkas' team made it to the NM1 Play-Offs Semifinals in 2015.
He was a member of Lithuanian U21 National Team back in 2005.
Pridotkas has played previously professionally in France (Chalons Reims, Etendard de Brest, Rueil and Charleville Mezieres) and Lithuania (Neptunas, Siauliai and Vytautas).
Let's have closer look into His outlook: Coaches call him high IQ on the court due to his great ability to read the game. Very wise player. Vaidotas is an athletic forward who can make an impact on a game in numerous ways. He runs the floor well, can put the ball on the floor and gets to the rim with ease Vaidotas is a great rebounder that loves to play above the rim. He loves to play with his back to the basket, but has the ability to step out and knock down the three-point or mid-range shot. Defensively, Vaidotas holds his position well, which makes him a nightmare on the boards. He is quick enough to lockdown smaller guards and big enough to guard the post player.
Vaidotas has a great work ethic and brings tenacity every time he steps on the court. His demeanor and attitude are excellent on the court which shows his passion of the game

The Greek-American a talented and skilled individual, an all around frontcourt player is improving day by day focusing mainly in his talent and hard work joining an amazing good basketball program in Notre Dame coming as one of the top men in the (N.H.) School , Zachary is expected to lead his college in both points and rebounds in his junior season and of course to keep on the same paste on his sophomore, at the same time due to his above average Basketball IQ he is very useful in many edges in the court. He is great in his extra curricula and also he is quite active in the various community services (awarded in the bronze level), and he is active as a member of the St. Anargyroi Greek Orthodox Church. He is working very hard every summer and that is the reason why his numbers are totally amazing season by season. A versatile player who is at his best playing above the rim with great defensive skills and timing in the air. Solid physical player with natural power can defend against much bigger guys with great results. During his last evolvements he focused on slowing down the pace of his game and working on his consistency of play at both ends of the floor and has great results so far. Gets up and down floor well ... can step away from the basket and shoot a jump shot away from the basket ... good ball handler ... has scored in double figures 10 times during his career. In his first two years with the the Notre Dam, Auguste often was in a hurry with about every aspect of the game. He played fast on the court; he talked quickly off it. He so wanted to play a key role that it left him all wound up and running in circles, not sure where he fit. As a freshman, preseason sprains twice to the same ankle derailed any idea that Auguste could crack a veteran rotation. Then-senior Jack Cooley had locked down all the low-post minutes. Generally, Auguste is of great material, he will pursue a professional career as he has all the elements to become a great player either in NBA or in the European courts. He will eventually be among the top men of the Greek NT
