Shengelia Makes Bid for Roster Spot

adidas Eurocamp by Robert Serra

As fates were being decided in places like Orlando, Brooklyn and Los Angeles, and millions were being dispensed like blinys on a Sunday afternoon in Moscow's Gorky Park, a team with Brooklyn on its jerseys played a game of basketball. The Nets entry in the summer league lost again, blowing another lead, but once again an unlikely star shined.

Inserted into the starting lineup at small forward, Toko Shengelia had yet another terrific performance. The Georgia national team member finished with 17 points, six rebounds and two assists and earning even more praise from Avery Johnson.

"He was outstanding," Johnson said. "He was really good. He’s having a good summer league, and he had a good camp. He’s getting better and better and we think he has a chance to be a really solid NBA three with versatility." No decision has been the fate of the 20-year-old taken at #54, but he is in the conversation.
