   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 47

[...] Gary Neal was spending his second season with Benetton Treviso, and was leading Serie A in scoring with a 19.4 points per game average. I say "was" for a reason; Benetton released Neal last week. They did this because two weeks ago, Neal went out and got absolutely smashed with Armani Jeans Milano guard Alex Acker, and was subsequently too ill to play in Benetton's next game. Benetton did not take too kindly to a player missing a game for this reason, and they took action. Swift and decisive action. (Neal landed on his feet, signing with Unicaja Malaga in Spain's ACB a matter of days later. But Acker was waived by Milano later the same week. Was this partly the reason why? Could not say.)

   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 1

- Alex Acker

Acker started last season with the Pistons, and got traded to the Clippers in a trade that I totally predicted. (Apologies for being self-aggrandising.) He then went to summer league with the Knicks, and then left the NBA. He signed with A.J. Milano in Italy, and appeared in the league's first eight Italian league games (averaging 10.0 points and 4.3 rebounds) and their first four Euroleague games (8.8 and 2.8). However, he hasn't played since November 12th due to injury. I don't know what the injury is exactly, but a quick Google translate reveals that it's a "torn muscle." Don't know which.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
