Terrance Ferguson still waiting FIBA clearance
According to a spokesperson for the Thunder, all players coming from overseas organizations dictated by FIBA are automatically required to receive a clearance letter from FIBA in order to pursue basketball elsewhere. Unfortunately for Ferguson and more importantly the Thunder, he has yet to be issued the letter and is forbidden to play until then.
Both Ferguson and the Thunder have received no insight into when he will be granted his permission via letter, but it could take a while. The Summer League only extends into Thursday, and it would be a very bad hit for Oklahoma City not to see any gameplay from him until pre-season.
I wonder why its taking so long. He left Adelaide what, 3 months ago?
