   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 24

- Mickael Gelabale

Gelabale was another training camper this year, although he wasn't supposed to be. He missed most of last season recovering from his March 2008 knee surgery, returning only for the last 6 games of the D-League season. He played fairly well there and went to the Mavericks summer league roster, but did not make the team, and instead went to Spain.

Once there, Gelabale found himself in a Johnny Kerr style bruhaha when he agreed to sign for Lucentum Alicante in Spain's ACB, only to find that the agreed salary had been changed without his knowledge when he turn up to sign the contract. He left without signing the deal and fired his agent. And then came the trip to the Lakers' training camp.

A few weeks later, Gelabale joined Cholet, the French team he started his professional career with. In 5 Eurocup games for Gelabale averaged 7.6 points and 4.2 rebounds, alongside 9.6 points and 3.9 rebounds per game in the French league.
