   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 57

- Michael Ruffin

Ruffin signed with the Oklahoma City Thunder for training camp, which meant that for a brief time, him, Kevin Ollie and Ryan Bowen were on the same team. Ruffin didn't make the cut, though, and then returned to Spain for the first time in 7 years when he signed a six week contract with Manresa. In 8 games, Ruffin averaged 21.6 minutes, 2.1 points, 5.1 rebounds, 0.1 assists, 2.4 fouls, 1.6 blocks and 1.9 steals per game. He shot 33% from the field and 28% from the foul line, which means he shots 61% overall. Or something. After that contract expired, it was not renewed, and Ruffin has remained unsigned. He was linked last month to struggling Xacobeo Blusens, but they signed Paul Davis instead.

Incidentally, had he played enough minutes to qualify, Muffin would be second to only Rubio in steals per 40 minutes in ACB play.
