It's tough for TP that he got cut, but it looks like he got $75K to play summer ball and try out with the Hawks. That's not terrible pay for a 24 year old guy.

 

Now he can go to Europe and play there for 10 years and make some good cash.

Please explain to me why a team would do this?

 

Thanks,

 

 

 

I can't see the tweets from the work computer but if it is about the Pacers waving him I believe it has to do with retaining his D League rights

He scored 16 points, grabbed 4 boards, got one assist and like he usually does was tagged with 5 fouls. Terran did lead the team in points though and this team has some notable basketball players on it, namely really good college guys that aren't doing great in the league.

I think if Terran had a better attitude he would be picked up by a team. He has a lot of talent and think he can be an NBA player potentially, but if he doesn't fix the attitude problems like he had at Nebraska, he is a D-league player at best. I am sure there are other reasons beside that but that is one of probably more reasons why teams did not pick him up.

You don't know his attitude...don't act like you know him.

I do not know him and you are correct.

 

However I do know people around him and they told me his attitude is terrible. When you are a grown man and you ask team managers to tie your shoes, that is childish. Now that is not really an example of his bad attitude but when you act like everything should be given to you, that is not good. I wish him all the best, but his chances are dwindling as the years go by because teams aren't going to want him once he gets to age 29 or higher. If he doesn't make it before that age, he won't make it plain and simple.

You think no other basketball players ever did anything like this on the Duke/Kentucky/North Carolina teams?

 

Stop kidding yourself. Most players with NBA potential are ALL like this.

Most student athletes are handed lots of things because of all their hard work. Nothing in the NBA is handed to you, if you do not work hard enough or do not want to work hard enough, you will not make it. Also most of those kids at Kentucky and NC and Duke that are playing are elite players. I doubt most of them are allowed to slack off because these teams are continually elite.

 

But if Petteway wants to make a team he needs to work on being a guy that can score and pass. He loves the ball in his hands and since he is not even on an NBA team yet, I doubt most teams want to add a bench guy that can score and do nothing else. He is not a great defender and I haven't seen any of his great passing skills that would help make him more of a triple threat player. If his shooting has not improved he will at best be a 10 day contract player for a team like the warriors who need bodies to rest all star players.

Had three points for the Boston Celtics summer league team. Most likely staying in Europe or playing in the new G league this year(formerly the D league).

Can make a very nice living playing ball in Europe.

A number of NU players from the past 10-15 years have done quite well in Europe. Get to make good money, living in really cool places, and not have to get a "real job".
