   2010 Summer Signings, Part 3

In Cyprus, North Carolina State streak shooter Courtney Fells has switched teams, going from AEL Limassol to Keravnos. Hopefully next season, statistics from Cyprus will be available. Israeli team Bnei Hasharon have signed Dan Grunfeld - one time Knick and Ernie's Romanian son - to pair up alongside former Alabama guard Ron Steele and former Duquesne forward Shawn James, the latter of whom led Israel in blocked shots by quite a long way. And Polish Euroleague team Prokom Gydnia elected to keep former NBA guard Daniel Ewing, helping to offset the loss of David Logan, whom they could not retain. Logan is reportedly about to sign with Caja Laboral; if he does, it'll be a pretty lucrative gig, as Caja Laboral just won the ACB.

   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 26

- Dan Grunfeld

If Ploiesti is the only Romanian team that you've ever heard of, then Dan Grunfeld is the only Romanian player that you've ever heard of. The Stanford graduate and former Knicks training camper is the son of besieged Wizards GM Ernie Grunfeld, and Ernie Grunfeld was born in Romania. Therefore, Dan was eligible for a Romanian passport, one which he received last year in order to enhance his European career. Having it means he counts as a European player now and not as an American, for teams have limits on the numbers of Americans they can have. Except, seemingly, for Belgium. They either don't have a limit, or the limit is 158.

Grunfeld helped C.B. Valladolid earn promotion from the LEB Gold to the ACB last season, and is currently there for his second season. He's not playing much, however, averaging only 5.5 points and 2.4 rebounds per game.

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.
