The Springfield Armor announced before Thursday night's game vs. Canton that Jeff Foote was "unavailable". Later, Scott Schroeder tweeted, and the Armor confirmed, that the D-League All-Star had been called up to the Hornets. Armor personnel had seen the seven-footer as the most likely Nets call-up.
The Armor will retain Foote's rights if he returns to the D-League. The Nets hold no rights to Foote.
Without Foote and an injured JamesOn Curry, the Armor fell to the Canton Charge 106-103. Dennis Horner, the ex-Net, scored 23 points and grabbed 14 rebounds. Four other Armor players were in double figures. Luke Hanragody, just sent down by the Cavaliers, had a game-high 24 points.
