Odds & Ends: Draft, Shaw, Mavs, Williams

December 23 2013 at 9:30pm CDT By Zach Links

Switzerland’s Clint Capela may enter his name in the 2014 Draft, according to a report from Catch and Shoot, translated by Emiliano Carchia of Sportando.  “If I had to decide today, I think I’d add my name in the next NBA draft,” said Capela.  The young big man born in 1994 is averaging 5.3 PPG and 4.8 RPG in Pro A with Chalon, while in Eurocup he scored 11.2 PPG with 6.5 RPG in 10 games.  Capela has been followed by several NBA scouts over the last months.  Here’s more from around the Association..

  • Terry Frei of the Denver Post takes a look at some of the growing pains Brian Shaw is experiencing in his first season as the Nuggets’ head coach.
  • Mavericks owner Mark Cuban says his club has to make things easier on rookie point guards Shane Larkin and Gal Mekel, writes Eddie Sefko of the Dallas News.
  • There’s mutual interest between former Celtics guard Terrence Williams and the D-League’s Maine Red Claws, writes Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald.  That interest, however, does not guarantee that Williams will join the Red Claws, currently in second place in the East Division. Williams must sign with the D-League and then go through the waiver claim process and go untouched to land with the Red Claws.  Williams played two games for a Turkish club last month before calling it quits and coming back to the states.
