Lots to catch up on today. Let's get right to it.
- Kevin Seraphin has signed to play with Caja Laboral Vitoria of Spain for next season, according to his agent. It's a different club team than the one he played for before coming to the NBA. Like most overseas deals, Seraphin will return to the Wizards when the lockout ends. [Michael Lee]
- Seraphin briefly got into the Eurobasket Gold Medal game, playing eight minutes in France's 98-85 loss to Spain. He had four points and three personal fouls in that time.
- John Wall is working on his jumper and he thinks it looks good, which is excellent news. [Lee]
- To me, though, the most interesting line in the above story is this one, when Wall was asked about Andray Blatche's players-only workouts last week. "I think it’s better to do it L.A., where everybody is at," said Wall, who trains at the Impact facility in Reseda, Calif., with Crawford and Nick Young. "Most of us are based in L.A. So I think it’d be great to go out there." This could be interpreted a whole number of ways, many of which concern me a bit. I'll let you all spell those out in the comments.
