Two new players of today are officially members of the Future I-LOVE. Croatian center Robert Rikic (219cm, 24g), and a wing of the U.S. Vil SIHI (201cm, 22g) represent a new quality in Blue. Rikic has signed a three-year, while the Šihijem agreed upon years of cooperation.
Robert Rikic was born in Mostar on 29 April 1990th year. He was a cadet national team handball, Aonde switched to the basketball court, and the Croatian junior team won the bronze medal at the European Championship, the 2008th year. He was a member of Dubrovnik, Zagreb, and since 2012. Broad-up this summer.
Vil SIHI (Will Sheehey) 16.JANUAR was born in Florida. He played at the University of Indiana, where in the last year had 11.4 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.8 assists per game.
KK Buducnost will participate in the second-level of European competition, the EuroCup, this season. Its first game will be on October 3.
Five former Indiana players — Cody Zeller, Victor Oladipo, Noah Vonleh, Will Sheehey and Christian Watford — participated in the NBA summer league, which concludes later today in Las Vegas.
Oladipo played in the Orlando summer league, while Watford played both in Orlando and Las Vegas. Zeller, Vonleh and Sheehey played in Vegas. Here’s a look at how all five players performed:
· Zeller, Charlotte: 15.7 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.3 steals in 27.7 minutes per game.
The sample size was small — just three games — but the results were encouraging for Zeller, who may be in line for a bigger role following the departure of Josh McRoberts to Miami via free agency. Most impressive about Zeller’s play was his shooting from the field (58.6 percent) and the fact that he got to the line 20 times over three games.
Zeller has looked a lot more assertive on the floor this year and more sure of himself, and that confidence has definitely manifested itself in the box score, where he has shot an impressive 63 percent from the field (over his first two games). His combination of size and speed makes him an extremely tough cover, and he’s finding ways to get open looks around the rim by being active and taking full advantage of his physical gifts.
INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana forward Will Sheehey is looking to catch the eye of an NBA franchise in the weeks leading up this month’s draft and on Friday, he was at Bankers Life Fieldhouse to work out for the Indiana Pacers.
Sheehey, along with Russ Smith (Louisville), Davion Berry (Weber State), DeAndre Daniels (Connecticut), Xavier Thames (San Diego State) and Kendall Williams (New Mexico), worked out in front of members of the Pacers front office, including team president Larry Bird.
The Pacers have the No. 57 pick in this year’s draft.
Since finishing up in Bloomington, Sheehey has been working out in New York, where his agent, Marc Cornstein of Pinnacle Sports, is based. According to HoopsHype.com, Cornstein represents Metta World Peace, Samuel Dalembert and Beno Udrih.
Sheehey’s father, Mike, also lives in New York.
Following his workout with the Pacers, Sheehey addressed the media and was asked about a variety of topics, including the feedback he’s received so far from NBA teams, his career at Indiana and what he feels he can bring at the next level. You can watch and listen to all of his comments in the media player after the jump.
