Basically, former Grizzlies and Hornets forward Marquinhos Vinicius just signed with Brazilian club Pinheiros (located in Sao Paulo), which plays in the unofficial rebel league called Supercopa.

At age 23, he has already played for Corinthians, Bauru, Vasco, Mogi, Sao Carlos (all Brazilian), Montegranaro (Italian) and both NBA clubs.

Wow! I was wondering what happened to Vinicius. He always seemed to be a good player. My guess is that this Supercopa team offered him "an offer he can't refuse," (read: under the table money). Perhaps after the Supercopa season, he'll try Europe again.
