   2010 Summer Signings, Part 1

After a bad season, ASVEL Villerbanne are cutting salary. To celebrate their first Euroleague campaign for five years, the team spent Tony Parker's money bringing in reinforcements with pedigree - Curtis Borchardt, Rawle Marshall, Mindaugas Lukauskis. Unfortunately, they never made it out of the group stage, and they didn't even break .500 in the ProA either, finishing in 9th place with a 14-16 record. Therefore, Borchardt and Marshall have been released, Victor Samnick has moved to Nancy, and Ali Traore might soon leave the team as well. ASVEL have already brought in replacements; Clemson guard Cliff Hammonds comes over from Peristeri in Greece, and draft prospect Edwin Jackson has returned from two years on loan, fresh with a new cut fastball that breaks late away from the right hander. But there is no replacement size yet.

   Bookkeeping The Retired Guys, 2013 Edition

Curtis Borchardt - Borchardt's professional career was a long story of injures, both in his NBA time and his subsequent European stays. He missed most of the 2003-04, 2006-07, 2007-08 and 2009-10 seasons, as well as all of the 2002-03 and 2010-11 ones. He missed the start of the 2011-12 season, too, but returned in January to play five healthy and productive months for ACB team Valladolid, averaging 8.9 points and 7.1 rebounds in a desperate yet successful bid to stave off relegation. He then retired this offseason.

   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 8

- Curtis Borchardt

Borchardt left Spain for the lower standard French league this summer, but he did so because the team he joined - ASVEL Villerbanne - are a Euroleague team this season. Unfortunately, the inevitable happened; after only one Euroleague game and four French league games, Borchardt got injured. He broke his hand and will miss the remainder of the regular season.

In the one Euroleague game, Borchardt totalled 20 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 blocks. That's good. But he also gets injured every year without fail. And that's not good.
