Luther Head getting interest from Melb Tiges

Via RealGM.


Luther Head is fielding interest to play overseas in the hopes of resurrecting an NBA career, a source told RealGM.

Head is receiving interest from teams in Turkey and Ukraine - including Turkish team Turk Telekom and Melbourne Tigers of the National Basketball League, a source said. NBA teams that have expressed a level of interest in Head have made clear a swift move for him won't be made.

A former first round draft choice of the Houston Rockets in 2005, Head played with four teams in six NBA seasons. He spent his most recent season with the Sacramento Kings in 2011, and Head enjoyed his best year in 2006-07, when he averaged nearly 11 points on 44.1 percent three-point shooting on the Rockets’ playoff team.

Head entered the 2005 NBA draft after a standout career at the Univeristy of Illinois, where the 6-foot-3 sharpshooter teamed with Deron Williams and Dee Brown to form a dynamic backcourt that led the school to the NCAA championship game.

Head, 30, played in the D-League a season ago, averaging 12.5 points and 1.5 steals per game with Austin and Texas.

Whenever I see this guy's name, I remember a high-school age Chinese international student my brother had staying with him for a while. He was a huge NBA fan (of the Rockets, unsurprisingly) which meant that he was quite enamoured with his host. Anyway, Luther Head played for the Rockets at the time, but Andersen the student always pronounced his name as "Loser Head".

I'd like to think that there are countless kids in China telling stories of Andrew Gaze's pronunciations of Chinese Olympic player names in turn.

Would be a good signing if he did come to Melbourne, definitely an upgrade on Ubaka

Tigers would become a title threat if head replaced pathetic ubaka. Does anyone know how many points ubaka is worth and how much he's getting payed. There's heaps of big v and seabl players that are better than him.
