Mickael Gelabale Receiving Interest From FC Barcelona

Three-year NBA forward Mickael Gelabale is receiving interest on a possible deal with FC Barcelona, sources told RealGM.

FC Barcelona will be without two integral players next season, losing Kostas Papanikolaou to the Houston Rockets and Erazem Lorbek in a buyout agreement. The European powerhouse has Gelabale on a list of potential additions.

Lorbek’s NBA rights are owned by San Antonio, but the 6-foot-11, former Michigan State forward won’t join the Spurs this summer and will recover his body to full health before deciding on his next professional contract, a source told RealGM. Lorbek, 30, has already announced he’s unable to play in the World Cup for the Slovenian national team due to injury.

Gelabale averaged 5 points and 2.7 rebounds in 36 games for the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2013. Some NBA teams planned to watch Gelabale perform for France in the World Cup.

Gelabale was a second round pick in 2005 to the then-Seattle SuperSonics, and played two seasons with the franchise and suffered an ACL injury that subsequently led him to the NBA Development League and overseas teams.

Aquille Carr Finalizing Deal With Saint John Mill Rats Of Canada

Aquille Carr – once a Baltimore, Maryland/Washington D.C. prep phenom – is finalizing contract terms with the Saint John Mill Rats of the Canada National Basketball League, a source told RealGM.

Before entering the June NBA Draft, Carr had played 10 games with the Delaware 87ers of the NBA Development League. He averaged 10.7 points and 1.9 rebounds in 14 minutes per game. Carr left the D-League in January and spent months training for his next professional team – ultimately going undrafted in June.

Carr’s deal with the Saint John Mill Rats holds an escape clause should the 20-year-old become drafted in next season’s D-League draft, a source said.

At 5-foot-5, Carr gained national recognition for his skill level and athletic talent while playing high school basketball at Princeton Day Academy in Baltimore. Carr also played in numerous exhibition, training and in-season games in the D.C. area.
