    Knicks director of international scouting, Kevin Wilson, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Salah Mejri, a 7'1" center from Jendouba, Tunisia (iBasketball). "I know that NBA scouts descend to Antwerp," said the 24-year-old Mejri, who is currently playing for the Antwerp Giants pro basketball club based in Belgium. "It's nice to hear. I must, however, work hard, listen to the coaches and learn to travel. Last week I was tired after the trip to Romania."

    Over the summer, Mejri [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] at the FIBA World Championship and averaged 7.2 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. And how did they do? They went 0-5 and lost to Team USA in their final game, 92-57, in which Mejri scored 0 points, but he did grab eight boards. Currently on [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Mejri, who is also being looked at by the Mavericks, is not projected to be drafted in 2011 or 2012.

    Default what the fug?

    what's the point? Knicks spent a million bucks on Jerome Jordan, who decided to go to Serbia instead of sitting on the d'ogbench, or playing in D' League. unless Knicks get a proven center, ain't no sense bringing in another tall foreigner with half a clue how to play in the NBA. sorry Charlie the Tunisian.

    Probably won't amount to anything. It's just another prospect we'll have in mind as a backup plan should Mozgov fail, we need extra help at C, etc. Never can have too many backup plans.

    Yeah it's just a backup plan.

    Can't say too much about it because he's a foreign player and you can't just take a 7-footer and stick him in the NBA and expect much, if anything at all. We don't want to make like idiots and give him a contract or anything like that...the old Desagana Diop trap

    Baksteball in Tunisia is like beach volley in Greenland.
