Now that the lockout is underway, basketball related news in America has been relatively quiet. On the other side of the pond, international basketball still has news these days. According to the French site OuestFrance.fr, San Antonio Spurs’ Tony Parker is expected to attend an exhibition game in France on Friday assembled by Portland Trail Blazers’ Nicolas Batum.
Even more surprising, is former Spur and new Indiana Pacer guard George Hill is expected to make an appearance, as well as new NBA champion and former Spur Ian Mahinmi.
