Boykins Will Return To Italian Club, Agent Says

According to the agent for former NBA guard Earl Boykins, his client will not be cut from his Italian Euroleague team after all, Marc Stein from ESPN.com is reporting.

Boykins will be rejoining Virtus Bologna this week after Boykins ignored his club's denial of a request to return to the United States for a four-day break at Christmas.

"Earl flew home [to Cleveland] due to a medical situation with his young son," Termini said. "The club preferred to have his child receive treatment in Italy, but that was not comfortable for Earl and his family."
