Marcelo Huertas Hopes To Leave Europe For NBA

Apr 28, 2015 10:56 AM

Marcelo Huertas is planning a move to the NBA next season and is determined to take a serious look at leaving Europe.

“This is the right time,” Huertas said. “If you look at NBA rosters, there are unbelievable starting point guards, but maybe not as many guys who can come off the bench able to run the team, score the ball – as well as being able to be a leader for young players. Those are things I know I’ll be able to bring with me.”

Huertas has played six seasons for FC Barcelona of the Spanish ACB, leading Barca to three consecutive Euroleague Final Four appearances. Huertas has been Brazil’s point guard in numerous Olympic Games, World Championships and FIBA America tournaments.

Mickael Gelabale Receiving Interest From FC Barcelona

Aug 28, 2014 3:38 PM

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.
