There’s been a Jabari Smith sighting : Pro Basketball News’ Sam Amico reports the former Nets/Sixers/Kings center (shown above, defending His Dirkness) has signed with Turkish club Besiktas Cola Turka, aka “The Black Eagles”

It’s a pretty cool nickname, but I don’t think the world is ready for The Black Timothy B. Schmit.

Lost admist the local mania surrounding Vince Young’s heroics (if not UT’s strong showing against Colorado) are the recent exploits of the NBDL’s Austin Toros, winners of 5 of their last 6, including yesterday’s 107-105 away victory over the Florida Flame. You can’t spell “Flame” without “lame”, and there’s no better way to describe the sort of defending that would allow the Toros to hit 12 of 22 shots from 3 point range.
