International Moves: Motum, Burton, Ware

Many of the dozens of players who recently found themselves on the market after having spent training camp with NBA teams end up in the D-League, but more lucrative deals usually require a trip overseas. International circuits are still reaping the benefits from the deluge of NBA cuts that took place in advance of last week’s deadline for teams to pare their rosters to 15, and here’s the latest on those moving from the Association to more distant outposts:

  • Brock Motum followed up his time in Jazz camp with a deal to play for the Adelaide 36ers in his native Australia, the team announced (hat tip to Sporando’s Emiliano Carchia). The deal runs through 2015/16, but it allows the 24-year-old to leave for an NBA deal, according to Roy Ward of The Sydney Morning Herald. It’s unclear how much Motum will make, but he opted for Australia over the D-League because of better money and the belief that the competition is superior, Ward writes.
  • Kings camp cut Deonte Burton has signed with Germany’s Ratiopharm Ulm on a pact that covers the rest of the season, the team announced (translation via Carchia).
  • Former Sixers guard Casper Ware is also off to Germany, having signed with EWE Baskets Oldenburg, the team announced (translation via Carchia). The contract covers the balance of 2014/15, according to the club. Ware was briefly a member of the Nets after a trade sent him to Brooklyn 10 days ago, but he wound up on waivers the day after that.
