    Diante Garrett signs with Croatian Team....

    per his twitter. Really bad time for the NBA lockout. Hope that he will get a chance in the NBA if they ever get back to playing.

    I don't know that the lockout will effect DG. He was going to end up overseas for this season at least anyway. Now he can just go and concentrate on his game.

    Does anyone know specifics of this league? Some are a bit sketchy.

    Good for DG. Hope he makes a little bit of cash, and then gets a shot in the NBA soon.

    Re: Diante Garrett signs with Croatian Team....

    Diante could not have had a worse coach for his first three years and then he has to deal with the unfairness of the NBA lockout and will end up bouncing around countries like Croatia. He deserved better....red shirt freshmen year, develop under someone like Hoiberg, blossom his senior year after a break out junior season, and be a first round pick. Shame.

    I think this is a good league. He'll make some money and then I think he will get a shot at the NBA.

    Good for him. He probably would of gone overseas even if he was drafted.

    Re: Diante Garrett signs with Croatian Team....

    I'm happy for DG but traditionally the Euro leagues style of play doesn't fit what he's good at. Maybe it'll be a chance for him to bring along his half court game and get a shot at the NBA.

    Treat it as a training camp. Learn some new stuff.

    Congrats DG. All of that hard work and extra hours in the gym sure are paying off I think it's possible Diante ends up accomplishing as much as Jamaal at the next level IMO.


    Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter.

    Tinsley? DG is never going to put up anything close to 15.4 PPG or 8.4 APG in the NBA.

    Re: Diante Garrett signs with Croatian Team....

    Smart move. How does he make himself visible to NBA execs and coaches if he isn't playing anywhere? He can go overseas, get paid, enjoy the experience, and eventually make his way on to an NBA roster. Better than hanging out in the US waiting for the lockout to end.

    Re: Diante Garrett signs with Croatian Team....

    He'll make FAR more money in Europe than he would playing for teams like the Iowa Energy in the NBA development league, that's for sure.

    He can probably make enough over there to live on the rest of his life if he doesn't spend it all. That's quite a bit of financial security for a young man. I wish I had that.

    Good luck DG!

    Yep, he can make a good living and play in some pretty high quality leagues overseas. It definitely was the smart move for him to make. And guys like Udonis Haslem, Gary Neal and Ben Wallace started their careers in Europe before joining the NBA.

    Very unlikely, don't see Diante starting for multiple years at Point Guard for an NBA team. Hope he gets a shot and makes the league someday.
