Mike Efevberha Receives Interest To Join NBA System Of Kings, 76ers Through D-League

Feb 1, 2015 12:16 PM

With the conclusion of a consecutive strong season in China, guard Mike Efevberha is receiving interest from the Sacramento Kings and Philadelphia 76ers to integrate his rights into their NBA system via the D-League, a league source told RealGM.

Efevberha finished his season with Sichuan in the Chinese Basketball Association, scoring 42.4 points and grabbing 9.6 rebounds over the last five games. For the season, he averaged 27.8 points on 51 percent shooting from two-point range.

The Kings’ D-League affiliate is Reno while the 76ers operate Delaware.

With the expiration of his rights with Iowa, Efevberha is free to choose a new team based upon which NBA system will suit his slashing and cutting skill set. In the 2011-12 season with the Iowa Energy, he averaged 19.8 points and 48 percent shooting.

Efevberha had been tied to the Iowa franchise until now, freeing the 30-year-old to incorporate himself into another affiliate as a precursor to a potential call up. Efevberha, 6-foot-4, went unselected in the 2006 NBA Draft out of Cal State Northridge.

Quincy Miller Agrees To Sign With Kings

Jan 17, 2015 2:56 PM

The Sacramento Kings have reached agreement to sign a 10-day contract with Quincy Miller out of their NBA D-League affiliate in Reno, league sources told RealGM on Saturday.

Miller, who starred in scoring 35 points in Reno's showcase game on Friday, is working to join the Kings for their home game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday.

After being waived by the Denver Nuggets out of training camp in October, Miller elected to sign in the D-League over overseas offers. Despite the unique, fast-paced and offensively driven system that Reno runs, Miller had remained confident in his ability to return to the league and had strong ties within the Sacramento organization.

Miller also had meetings scheduled at the D-League Showcase with the Indiana Pacers, Atlanta Hawks, Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs.
