    After F.C. Porto’s decision to extinguish its pro basket section, Greg Stempin returned to the USA and he’s now retired (there are rumors of a possible comeback, though).

    It is nice and a bit surprising to see so many American pros (and one «half-Korean») being able to «upgrade» to what I believe is a much more competitive league.

    By the way, thank you for reminding me that Eric Sandrin played for C.A.B. Madeira. I «wikked» him and now (only now) I now that he’s Lee Seung-Jun, a Korean NT player: he’s going straight to my «notable players in Portugal» database.

    A very pleasant surprise: there were 25 applications for the pro basketball leagues (LPB and Proliga – 12 spots each).
    VI LPB (2013-14) – 12 candidates: S.L. Benfica, Académica de Coimbra, C.A.B. Madeira, A.D. Ovarense, Vitória de Guimarães, Sampaense Basket, B.C. Barcelos, S.C. Lusitânia, Sport Algés e Dafundo, Galitos F.C., U.D. Oliveirense and Maia Basket.

    Diogo Carreira (PG, 1.80, 1978) and Tomás Barroso (PG, 1.85, 1990) extended their contracts with S.L. Benfica.


    JaMarkus Holt (PF, 2.05), who had an outstanding season with Algés, was signed by Starwings Basket Regio Basel (LNA – Switzerland).

    Former B.C. Barcelos’ forward MATIC SIRNIK signed a contract with KK Zlatorog Lasko (Slovenia).

    ------

    S.C. Lusitânia signed ZANE CAMPBELL (PF, 2.03, ex-Alabama-Huntsville – NCAA II) and the Mozambican NT member AUGUSTO MATOS (SG, 1.86, 1990) – the latter is a spectacular athlete with a mile-high vertical leap and a pretty decent outside-shot. An excellent recruit for Lusitânia.

    ----

    JOÃO SOARES (F, 2.02, 1990, ex-Basket Navarra) will return to Portugal and play for U.D. Oliveirense.

    Is the LPB going places? A handful of relatively important signings seem to indicate that the worst is over. If only Académica, Barcelos, Sampaense and CAB Madeira could get their acts together… Here’re the latest transactions:


    S.L. Benfica replaced Lace Dunn with JOBEY THOMAS (SG, 1.94, 1980, ex- Basket Barcellona – Legadue). Back in 2008-09, in 15 Euroleague games, Thomas averaged 12.1 pts with Olimpia Milan!
    -------
    Mozambican NT PG AMARILDO MATOS (PG, 1.90, 1985, Mozambique) and Cape Verdean NT member JOEL ALMEIDA (SF, 1.95, 1985, ex-Vitória de Guimarães) move to Sampaense Basket.
    ------
    MOHAMED CAMARÁ (SF, 1.96, 1983, ex- S.C. Lusitânia), who I wrongly said would sign with Algés, signed with U.D. Oliveirense.
    ------
    CESALTINO NETO (1993, Angola-Portugal, ex-Seixal F.C.) moves to Galitos F.C.

    U.D. Oliveirense was surprisingly able to sign the American SF AARON FULLER (1.98, 1989, ex-USC), a player with a higher profile than the average for the Portuguese league. He has been battling injuries though.
    -------
    Vitória de Guimarães signed the American PF TONY MEIER (2.03, 1990, ex Frankston Blues – Australian State Leagues).
    -------
    MARKO LONKOVIC (PF/C, 2.00, 1991, Montenegro) will be a B.C. Barcelos’ player one more year.
    -------
    C.A.B. Madeira signed EDSON ROSÁRIO (SF, 1.93, 1982, ex-Física de Torres Vedras) and FREDERICO TAVARES (SF, 1.94, 1988, ex-Terceira Basket). It’s rumoured that the American PG RICKY FRANKLIN (1.85, 1987, ex-S.L. Benfica) will join them.

    ---------
    C.A.B. Madeira signed the American rookie AARON ANDERSON (PF, 2.01, 1991, ex-Kennesaw State – NCAA 1) and the even obscurer JOBI WALL (SG/SF, 2.00, ex-Seattle Pacific – NCAA 2).

    After a sabbatical year, DAVID GOMES (PF/C, 2.00, 1986) is back, having joined B.C. Barcelos.
    --------
    Portuguese NT member JOÃO SANTOS (F, 2.05, 1979, ex-Física de Torres Vedras) will play for Sport Algés e Dafundo.

    Sampaense Basket waived the Mozambican PG Amarildo Matos and the American PF Rory Spencer and signed CHRIS DOWE (G, 1.93, 1991, USA, ex-Schwelm – German PRO B).
    -------
    Whoops! Sampaense didn’t sign Jobonni Durrell but JOVONNI SCHULER (SG/SF, 1.97, 1987, USA, ex-Al Arabi – Kuwait). My apologies to him.
