   The 2010 Puerto Rican BSN Season

Torraye Braggs - 3 games, 26.7 mpg, 15.0 ppg, 9.0 rpg, 1.0 apg, 4.3 fpg, 1.0 spg, 1.3 bpg, 41% FG, 0% EPT, 79% FT

Emmett isn't a big man, but he too has done the China/Puerto Rico combo, and has done it to great effect. He led the notoriously high scoring league with a 32.0 points per game average, and set a new CBA single game scoring record with a 71 point effort on March 7th that included 28-34 shooting from two point range. Emmett also averaged 7.5 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 2.4 steals per game; if there's a stat that can be put up, he'll explore it. He did much the same in Puerto Rico with his 20/8; however, Emmett played only 7 games before being changed for Kurt Looby. Unlike Emmett, Looby really can't score, as evidenced by his 6.8 ppg in 30 minutes for the Albuquerque Thunderbirds in the offense-friendly D-League this year. And this apparently was a problem for Guaynabo, who released Looby after the last 8 games of the regular season in which he scored a point every 6 minutes. He was replaced by journeyman ex-Rockets big man Torraye Braggs, a superior scorer.

McGowan was released for the returning Fizer, who was then released himself for Vanderbilt's Matt Freije. Freije, now a Lebanese national team member, makes a career out of gigs like this now, and he and Braggs (whose career has been like this for a long time) were Guaynabo's imports for the playoffs. It didn't stop them from being swept, however.

   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 8

- Torraye Braggs

Ex-Rockets forward Braggs has been on a hell of a world tour these last few years. He last played in the NBA down the stretch of the 2004-05 season, when the Rockets brought him back, and yet even though he signed 6 NBA contracts with 5 different teams in his time, Braggs wound up only ever playing 22 games and 178 minutes in the NBA.

Since 2005, Braggs has played in South Korea, the D-League, Russia, China, Israel, Latvia, Iran, Jordan, Mexico and Venezuela. He is currently in Uruguay, plsying for a team called Malvin. His silhouette is very much that of a white man.
