Chamberlain Oguchi Drawing NBA Interest

Nigeria managed just one win in preliminary play at the Olympics, and suffered an 83-point loss at the hands of Team USA, ending their Olympic run early. But at least one player from the squad caught the attention of some NBA front offices with his performance in London. 6'6" swingman Chamberlain Oguchi has received training camp invitations from several NBA teams, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Oguchi, 26, played his college ball in America, at Oregon and Illinois State, but has played mostly overseas since 2009, with one D-League stint in 2010/11. In Nigeria's final game against France earlier this week, Oguchi poured in 35 points, including eight three-pointers, impressing many NBA executives in attendance, according to Wojnarowski.

If Oguchi were to sign with an NBA team, his contract would likely be non-guaranteed and would start at the rookie minimum, so it's unclear whether that will provide enough incentive to return to North America. Either way though, the 26-year-old is one player to significantly improve his stock at the Olympics, putting his name back on the NBA radar.
