   2010 Summer League Rosters: Dallas Mavericks
2010-07-10

Amara Sy

Sy came to the NBA last year, despite being 28 years old and a successful player in France, to give the dream a shot. He was going to sign in training camp with the Mavericks, but did not do so because he could not get a visa finalised in time. 9 months on, the Mavericks finally get their chance to see him.

When his visa finally came through, Sy was made the fourth overall pick in the D-League draft by the Bakersfield Jam. Sy was released by the team due to injury before the season started, but returned in early December to averaged 15.0 points and 7.3 rebounds per game. The veteran of the French league took the huge discount to come to America in order to see if he could make the NBA, but he changed his mind on that fairly quickly. After only 16 games and six weeks with the Jam, Sy was bought out of his D-League contract to go play in Spain with CB Murcia. In the ACB for the first time, Sy averaged only 5.8 points and 4.5 rebounds, and was not been able to do enough to prevent Murcia from being relegated to the LEB Gold.

Unless Dallas really like what they see, a return to France next year looks somewhat inevitable.

French forward Sy drew interest from the Dallas Mavericks over the summer, and was then due to sign with the Charlotte Bobcats for training camp. He never signed in the NBA in the end due to the inability to get his visa his time, but when his visa came through, Sy was made the fourth overall pick in the D-League draft by the Bakersfield Jam. Sy was released by the team due to injury before the season started, but returned in early December to averaged 15.0 points and 7.3 rebounds per game.
