Ayinde Ubaka released by the Tigers another big announcement may be on the way

Ayinde Ubaka has been released by the Melbourne Tigers for personel reasons and is on his way back to the States. watch out for another big signing announcement from the NBL with another possible poast NBA player.

“Chewy came in late and worked hard to give us what we wanted, but his circumstances mean he needs to leave,” Tigers coach Chris Anstey said.
“We respect his situation.“I know Chewy is disappointed to be leaving because he loves his teammates and they love him. He has been an excellent teammate and fitted in really well with this group.”

For the seven games this season for the Melbourne tigers, Ubaka averaged 5.3 ppg at 31.8 per cent from the field. In his past seasons in the NBL he averaged career numbers of 13.5 ppg at 39.9 per cent. He really looked to lack some confidence this season and with less time on the floor struggled to contribute.
The Melbourne Tigers are expected to announce the new signing within the next 48 hrs. Rumours are circulating of former NBA player Luther Head who played for the Houston rockets from 2005-2009, the Miami Heat in 2009, Indiana Pacers in 2009-2010 and the Sacramento Kings 2010-2011. I'll update the page when i hear of who they sign. But its big things for the NBL and looking like it will be a very exciting season.
