Will Brian Scalabrine Get an NBA Job for Next Season?
Scal tells the Boston Globe that his main goal is to play in the League, but he could also end up in Europe: “Scalabrine wants to play in the NBA next season, but offers to remain in the league aren’t overflowing for the affable veteran, prompting Scalabrine to contemplate his immediate future. ‘I don’t know what my plans are,’ he said. ‘I’m just keeping it wide open. I’ve got good offers overseas, but my goal is to play in the States for one more year and see what comes from it.’ Scalabrine, 32, played the entire second half of the season with an ailing right shoulder injured Jan. 7. He underwent surgery last month to clean out particles and remove bone spurs and remains in rehabilitation. Scalabrine struggled with his perimeter shot at times last season and it could have been attributed to the sore shoulder. He shot 32.7 percent from the 3-point line in 53 games. ‘Before I could use my right arm (to play defense), it was hard, I had to do everything with my left hand,’ he said. ‘Everybody plays with injuries. I won’t use it as an excuse.’”
