Georgian Champ BC Armia agreed on terms with New Jersey Nets PG Sundiata Gaines (186-PG-86). Former University of Georgia PG will play in Georgia until the lockout is over, as told us by agent Levan Mikeladze.
Gaines was one of the best PG on the market this summer. He turned down several offers from Euroleague teams and finally agreed with BC Armia which has a very ambitious roster on EuroChallange: Sundiata Gaines (186-PG-86) from NJ Nets, Jeremy Richardson (201-SF-84) from Valencia, Will Thomas (203-PF-86) from Oostende and Joakim Kjellbom (213-C-79) from Norrkoping.
Gaines spent last season in NBA with Minnesota Timberwolves, Toronto Raptors and New Jersey Nets averaging 4.6ppg, 1.6rpg and 1.8apg in 24 games.
The deal seemed close to fail last week but the two parts, at the end, reached the agreement.
