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.
