Brian Cusworth

Cusworth was with the Hornets for summer league last year, too, at which time I wrote this about him:

Cusworth is an occasionally bearded 7'0 centre, Harvard graduate, all-Ivy League second team member in 2005, former winner of the Estonian National Championships and former Estonian league MVP. He won those awards in 2007/08 and was able to turn it into a prolific gig in the Spanish second division, with a team called Leche Rio Breogan Lugo. Cusworth averaged 27 minutes per game, totalling averages of 15.9 points, 7.1 rebounds, 1.3 blocks and 1.4 steals per game. He's succeeded everywhere that he's played. But that's because he's never played at a standard this good before.

Since that time, Cusworth has played in the ACB, the second best league in the world. His numbers took an inevitable hit. But they were still respectable; Cusworth averaged 9.7 points and 3.8 rebounds per game, shooting 50% from the field and 80% from the line. He played 22 minutes per game, however, which makes the rebounding numbers look quite bad, and he also averaged 3.6 fouls per game. But scoring 7 footers are always hard to come by, and so even if Cusworth is now 26 and unable to rebound, you can see where the looks keep coming from.

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.
