    Default Sundov signs one year contract with Knicks

    Knicks sign a big man

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]: According to SportNet.hr, a Croatian sports website, Bruno Sundov signed a one year contract to play for New York Knicks. "I'm returning to the NBA, I just faxed the contract back to America. I'm spending the next season in NY and I believe I'll fight my way to get more PT," said Sundov to SportNet.hr.

    Bruno played for 4 teams in 3 leagues this past season. After being waived by Cleveland, he signed a 10 day contract with New York, which wasn't renewed after it had expired. He went on to join the Gary SteelHeads of the CBA, and then returned to Europe, where he finished the season with Euroleague champion, Maccabi Tel Aviv.

    well.. i've never seen him play so i cant say.. but i CAN say this guy is not our answer at center. Just a placeholder til our man comes. As for Keon, I dont know, but I doubt we'd get him now. Why keep Naz, add Sundov for a year, and Keon as well? That's throwing money away. Unless Naz moves, it might make sense.. but I dont expect Keon coming aboard at this point.

    Just when I thought Isiah only wanted young black guys with troubled upbringings, he adds a white boy from Croatia. I'm interested in seeing his game.

    Seen Keon play in Toronto. He blocks shots and runs the floor well. Has a decent jumper. Low post game is average. But sundov is a complete jobber. I'm talking this guy is the NBA equivalent of doink the clown or the brooklyn brawler. And what's up with crack about brother with troubled upbringings? I don't think those silly kinds of comments are necessary. Just one brother's opinion.

    Isaiah is very in his own words "creative" but he better "create" a good answer for signing Brewer AND Sundov. I thought he was trying to get rid of bums not add more bums to the roster.

    Well, it's official. Sundov is the newest Knick.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]: NEW YORK, September 8, 2004 - New York Knickerbockers President of Basketball Operations Isiah Thomas announced today that center Bruno Sundov has been signed to a contract. As per club policy, terms of the deal are not announced.

    Sundov, 7-2, 260-pounds, appeared in four games for the Cleveland Cavaliers and one for the Knicks during the 2003-04 season, averaging 2.2 points, 2.0 rebounds and 6.6 minutes. The six-year NBA veteran was signed to a 10-day contract on Jan. 21, 2004 by New York. In 81 career games, the Croatian-native has averaged 1.8 points and 1.2 rebounds for the Dallas Mavericks, Indiana Pacers, Boston Celtics, Cavaliers and Knicks.

    “Bruno will add size and depth to our frontcourt,” Thomas said. “I have monitored his progress throughout his career. We have seen his improvement and feel we are getting him at the right stage of his development.”

    If these guys do turn out to be bums, at least they're getting less than a mill, unlike high priced bums like Moochie and Shandon.
