Some European teams are requiring their American players to stay on until the CBA is ratified. B.C. Armia of Georgia may be one of them. Sundiata Gaines played 39 minutes, one short of a full game, in a EuroChallenge win over Gottingen of Germany Tuesday. He scored 10 points on 4-for-13 shooting, handing out six assists.
With the win, the Nets three point guards, Deron Williams, Jordan Farmar and Gaines, finished with a 40-5 record in European leagues and cups. One advantage for Gaines: the game was played 150 miles from Europe's busiest airport rather then Tbilisi on the eastern end of the Black Sea.
