   We're Adding A Little Something To This Month's Sales Contest. As You All Know, First Prize Is A Cadillac El Dorado.

Powell played with the Bulls in training camp 2008, and has spent the time in between in Israel, Spain and France. He started last season with CB Murcia, and averaged 8.3 points and 3.4 rebounds before leaving in late January due to the inevitability of the team's relegation. He signed in France to finish up the season with Dijon, and put up 28 points and 8 rebounds in 38 minutes of 2 games before breaking his cheekbone and missing the remainder of the season. Powell is the same player now that he was when he left Illinois; athletic, defensively versatile and capable of the little things, but without a great offensive game (it's better, but not great), and undersized for a combo forward at about 6'6. He's here because he's the home town boy, but the depth chart is against him. The Bulls have way too much money invested in way too many small forward options to be able to find a place for Powell.

   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 52

- Roger Powell

Roger Powell started the season with CB Murcia in Spain, but got out of there just in time. He averaged 8.3 points and 3.4 rebounds in 15 games with the team currently adrift at the bottom of the ACB, was released by mutual consent in early February (Murcia replaced him with Josh Asselin), and moved to France to play for Dijon. Unfortunately, Dijon also suck, tied for last in France's ProA with a 7-19 record. Powell was helping, putting up 22 points and 6 rebounds on debut, but he broke his cheekbone in his second game and has not played since. Through no real fault of his own, this has been a bit of a wasted year.
